Dream Weaver

Thanks to this post I decided I would compile a short list of some of my dreams.  We all have them, don't we?  The thing about dreams/aspirations for me, is that I tend to be afraid of them.  Meaning that deep down, in the core of my lack of self-esteem and confidence, I hold this fear that I will never make any of them (dreams) come true.  Of course nothing could be further from the truth, but it's a struggle for me and one I deal with almost on a daily basis. 

Okay, so this "dreams" list of mine, is no particular order of significance.

1.  Conquering my demons
2.  Travel to Spain and to Italy for long periods of time
3.   Become a paid writer
4.   Sell my screenplay to a major production company
5.   Find inner peace
6.   Do something outside my norm at least twice a year
7.   Having healthy and loving relationships (family, friends, significant other, employment)
8.   Become Oprah rich (ok, that's a pretty far-fetched dream.  I'd settle for just "rich")
9.   Make a lasting impression on people I meet along the way
10. Make a difference

Do-able?  Totally.  At least, in my head.  I believe dreams force us to probe into ourselves and deal with the "crud" that we don't always want to face or deal with. 

What are your thoughts?

so glad you made a list! the best advice the book gave was to date each dream and write about your progress somewhere. then you can go back and keep track, etc. :) oh, I read the book for work.

So great to put this out there! I totally believe in the power of just tossing it all out in the universe. And then working toward things as realistically as you can. You'll surprise yourself, you'll see!
I used to be afraid myself and dreamed so small. Now my dreams are bigger than ever and I'm already amazed at what has come of them. :)

It's so good to write these down. It brings them out of the realm of impossible (in your head) and out into the light of day, that much closer to reality. :)

You have some great dreams there and are fully capable of making them come true. I'll go look at the site you gave us. At this stage in my life my dream is to not end up in an old folks home. :)

I think it's so important to write these down and put it out there. I'm a big believer that the universe gives us what we want - we just have to ask (and be aware of what we're asking for).

I would love to travel to Spain, Italy, and Greece someday. Sigh.

Yvonne: Blog with me often! I have done everything except #4 - but I never tried that one. As for #8, it depends on what you mean by rich. If you achieve #5, you will have #8.

ALL- Thanks for the comments! I think we all have a little list of our won out there, don't we? Hmmm... said...

I agree. Our successes were born of dreams. This is a meaningful and do-able list.
Keep dreaming.

Dreams make life worth living. If we didn't have dreams, it'd be a really boring, sad reality. Does that make sense? lol

Hang on to your dreams and go for each and every one of them!

Robyn- totally agree. i will always dream! :)

FV- yes i understand completely. it's true, what are we if we have no dreams or aspirations?
