So today is Thursday and I'm gonna try another Thursday Thirteen. If I did it right, you can click on the title and it will take you to the home page...
My Thirteen this week will be my goals and dreams. I often think about things I want to do in the future...and now I think i may be dreaming my life away. This list will help me define my dreams and give me a good starting point to work from...
1)To have a beach home. It can be anywhere, although I am partial to California...but I love the thought of waking up on the beach, taking a stroll, collecting sea glass and shells, hearing the gulls and smelling the sea.
2)To have some of my scrapbooking published. I'm not ready yet, but I am excited about new ideas and learning new ways to express myself.
3)To Travel. It would be heaven to be able to take a year and just go where ever I wanted. Paris, Dublin, Madrid, Mexico City, Montreal, Tokoyo, London, and where ever else I wanted.
4)To visit all 50 states. I think that would be awesome!!!To see the different people and cultures that make this country great!!
5)To write a book of original poetry. I love poems and I love writing them. Again, I'm not very good...but that's because I don't practice a lot.
6)To swim with dolphins. This is a big dream of mine. It seems to me it would be a magical experience...to swim and play with these beautiful and intelligent animals.
7)To change professions. I really hate my job. I want a career, not a 9-5 that I hate. The problem is I'm not trained to do anything and times is a ticking...
8)To have a lot of animals. I have one cat, but I would love to have more and dogs and fish and whatever. I love animals.
9)To learn another language. I know Spanish, but that was a neccesity, I want to learn French or Mandarin, just because.
10)To learn to be more social. I would like to have lots of friends, hang out at coffee shops or go to the movies, but I am not very good at making friends. I am shy and self-concious. I don't like being out of my comfort zone.
11)To do a 10K walk. Believe it or not, I would really like to do one of the walks for diabetes or heart disease to honor my sister.
12)To make a difference. I want to make a difference in the life of someone, anyone. To teach them something, or give encouragement, or just be a shoulder to cry on and an ear to listen.
13)I want to be comfortable in my own skin. I want to put me first sometimes and not beat myself up for being selfish. I want to be me and not be ashamed or embarrassed. I want to like me.
So there we are. Some are doable, some are fantasies, and some will help me become the person I want to be...
