Today Flo and I went to Santa Monica Beach with some friends to just hang out and enjoy the sun. I jokingly asked Flo the following “Did you ever dream of living in Los Angeles, hanging out on the Beach on a lazy Sunday, having an amazing job at a great company, awesome friends and just a wonderful life?”. He for sure said No and it was one of those moments again where it just hits me: We freaking made our dreams come true!
I was never really someone who believed in the saying “Live your dreams”. Sure, I had big dreams myself, but I was never optimistic enough to really think they might ever come true. But with that chance the Greencard win gave us, I kinda grew out of this “It will never happen anyways”-attitude and just started trying. And as you see know, that endless trying, hardwork and heartbreak brought me to where I am today: To Los Angeles, where I am living a life long dream.
Flo and I always say that we don’t feel like we really did that big of a step. That we don’t feel like we really moved to a foreign country with a foreign language to completely start over. Sometimes I really have to pinch and remind myself where I lived, what I have achieved in one year and what else is still to come. It makes me very proud, very happy and also feel like I should remind you all again to not forget your dreams. Follow them as long as it takes, don’t give up, be strong and never stop believing in them. Dreams do come true! And in real life they feel way better than they do in your imagination!
