Another airport wait… Returning home from Orlando yesterday.

Dreaming again

Alright, so I’m dreaming again.

I know, dreams are the stuff life’s made of 😉 , but I think you have to actually DO something. ANYTHING. To pursue them.

Don’t you?

I’m working on working on that.

I know that sounds like anything but pursuing my dreams, but I think it’s a step. Perhaps not a big step. But it’s step. I’m seeking quotes, and checking out my options. I’ve written out a vision, and I’m exploring possibilities. I’ve been here before. So, why am I here again? I haven’t had the gumption. Haven’t had the gumption to DO it.

I know what the next step is. It’s moving forward. Moving towards the dream(s). Taking risks.

So here it is.

I have a much better understanding of my priorities. I KNOW I want/need a challenge while still having a great deal of flexibility. I have visions of great things, but they do not well afford me the flexibility that will bring my happiness. I am adjusting the vision, to something that is a sort of bridge. If I can achieve successfully this bridge, then the dream doesn’t HAVE to mean sacrificing flexibility. It’s true that money doesn’t buy happiness, but it makes it much more reachable.

Two dreams that I am determined to make happen while I am young enough to enjoy them: I am going to fuel my entrepreneurial spirit and become independent; I am going make a home where a lake is our family’s backyard; and heck, let’s throw one more dream in for fun – I am going to travel when I want, where I want.

I know these are not remarkable dreams. Many, MANY people have the very same dreams. So, why is it that so many of us do not make them happen?

I’ve been exploring just this, and what I need to do to change it for me. I’ll keep you posted.

Postscript: I do have one more dream, but it’s not one that I feel as much in control of. It’s to be pain-free. I have an appt in March for an interview with the Pain Self-Management program. Until then, I feel as if I have tried everything. Never give up. Right?
