Do you ever feel lost in your life?
As if you are running around, working all the hours in the day, with little time for yourself and your loved ones?
And all you really want to do every day is to live your dream life finally doing what you love…
Welcome to Gathering Dreams
My name is Sara, the dreamer.
Daniele, my sweetheart since high school, is the photographer behind the blog and has been helping me to make all my dreams come true.
For the last 15 years, I worked in the film industry, creating beautiful images to make people dream and escape to a different reality.
I used to be that person that worked really hard (60+ hours a week), spending more time chained at my desk than having fun. Too tired most weekends to do anything, working day after day, just waiting for a one-week holiday a year in the sun.
Then one night in November 2013, the reality hit me. I was working on a difficult project at work and while I was leaving the office at 11 pm the night security guard said to me “Good night, Sara! See you in the morning”.
There are almost 1000 people in my building, and the night security guard shift is from 10 pm to 8 am. And he knew me, he knew me by name!
He saw me every night leaving, and every morning coming in…
That was it, I decided that this could not go on forever.
I had enough of spending my life in a job that was consuming me.
All I wanted was to escape, follow my dreams by living a healthy life, have more time for myself, my family, and my friends, travel, and see as much of the world as possible.
I had to find a new path, a new way of living that would allow us to finally be free from this prison we created for ourselves through our imposed self-belief and what our society tells us to do.
At the end of the project, in January 2014, I took a few days off work to recover, and while I was sitting alone in a cafe, I saw a happy old couple holding hands walking by, and I thought:
Why wait until you are 65 or over to enjoy the little life that you have left when you could be living the life that you are meant to live now?
I wanted to make our dreams come true as soon as possible!
Six years ago, I started working only 2 days a week, I learned how to invest in real estate, create what I love to call a Lifestyle Business, and through savings, smart investing, and my business, I now make enough money to be financially free!
And finally, in November 2019, my dream came true.
I left my job.
It wasn’t easy, I made mistakes and worked really hard along the way to get here.
Now I work because I want to, and not because I have to!
How will I help you?
Stop counting the calories and start creating new healthy habits you can follow every day.
Living your dream life means having enough energy to move, breathe, and think. Your body needs to be fuelled by wholesome, nutritious food that makes you feel amazing in your own skin. But this doesn’t mean eating sad-looking salads every day. Everything you eat needs to be tasty, satisfying, and a feast for the eyes!
I will show you how to pick fresh, seasonal ingredients and avoid processed food. And you will learn not to stress too much about what’s on your plate. Yes, you can indulge a little here and there. Nothing is off-limits, in the right amount.
Remember: this is not a diet, it’s a lifestyle!
Discover your real passion and take control of your money.
Time is precious. And limited. This is why you need to stop trading time for money and reach financial freedom. Money is simply a tool. Learn to control your money instead of having money controlling you.
Build up your savings without depriving yourself of the things that bring you joy. Learn how to invest and generate passive income, so you can quit the job you hate so much. Discover your real passion in life, and start doing what you want every single day.
There is no greater feeling than packing your bag and getting ready for your next adventure. The excitement and wonder that comes with meeting new people and seeing new places for the first time it’s hard to put into words.
Even if you work full-time and have little time to travel, you can still create unforgettable memories. Plus, you can learn how to explore incredible places and enrich your life without spending a fortune.
Travel will help you challenge yourself and discover a confidence you never knew you had.
Transform your plans into reality, and experience places you never imagined existed.
