3 things I want to do, but… there’s always a “but”

Here's a list of three things I want to do, and the excuses I use not to do them:

  1. Vlogs – I’ve been thinking about it for a while but I just don’t want to look ridiculous. Also, I don’t have a smaller camera so I couldn’t really do “in the field” vlogs, just “here’s me at my apartment talking about my life in LA”.
  2. Live a minimalist lifestyle – I love the lightness of that lifestyle and all the clear spaces. I already live a minimalistic life here in LA since I didn’t take much from Sweden when I moved, but to be a real minimalist I should not have all the stuff I left behind me at home.
  3. Eat 100% vegan – I would like to be a vegan, but I’ve hard time giving up some of the animal-products (cheese, eggs and fish/seafood). I feel bad about it, but right now I just know that I don’t have enough motivation to fully go through with it and stick to it.

If you've any good arguments that could push me into doing any of these things, you're welcome to share them with me!

I loved this type of a list! It's very interesting that we have things in life that we want to do "buuuut", there's always a but! Although I have to say I agree with the comment above 😊

Haha I'm glad you liked it! Right? I think everyone have this kind of list, with things they want to do but don't dare to or are just to lazy or what not, haha x

Think about why you want to start doing those things, and rate how much each thing means to you on a scale from 1-10. Also plan out small stept which you can do in order to accomplish those things, and give yourself small rewards when you manage to accomplish these steps. You can also check out @sannies, she writes a lot about veganism & veganism and has a lot of posts with tips on how you can live / start living the lifestyles =)

Jag var likadan med bloggandet, men vad som hjälpte mig var att verkligen bestämma mig för att jag behöver den här förändringen i mitt liv, eftersom jag hade tänkt på det så länge. Lista VARFÖR du vill dessa saker, vilket du inte nämner här. Om du vet varför det är viktigt för dig så kommer du se your purpose, och om det är viktigt nog kommer du veta att du måste göra det. Du är skyldig dig själv att förverkliga dina drömmar i detta korta liv. Ingen annan kommer göra det åt dig. Lite push från mig. 😉 Vad som hjälpte mig var också att börja i små delar, tex så kan du göra en video utan att publicera, eller vara vegan för bara en vecka. Om de sakerna känns någorlunda bekvämt så är det bara att ta nästa steg.

Gosia,
Ja, det får väl bli en lista om min lista, haha. Vet dock inte om jag skulle kalla vegan-livet och minimalistiskt liv för "mina drömmar", men jag förstår vad du menar. 😉 En video utan att publicera låter faktiskt som bra idé! Vegan för en vecka har jag varit innan... längre till och med, men faller alltid tillbaka!

wyspa,
One thing about vlog. You can do one test vlog which doesn't have to be published anywhere if you are afraid how do you look like. Maybe you'll look fabolous in vlog but you still don't know about it if you don't try. Share it only to the friends which can give you objective opinion about it and then you have it! Al least you will know how do you look in front of camera and test your practical skills 😉 I'm also struggling with this and making slowly some travel videos but still afraid of recording myself hahaha.

Gosia,
You're right, making a video without feeling that I must publish it could take away part of the stress about the whole thing, haha. Do you make travel videos with your DSLR? I don't know if it's that mine is heavy or if it's just me being weak but I can't see myself filming with it when I'm out and about.
No to czekam na Twoje vlogi 😉 x

Yes, I use dslr which isn't as handy as compact camera but at least it provide good quality and performance. I cross fingers for you! 😊
