Blog to note: Marelisa Online is owner of the AbundanceBlog. One blog, I fantastically stumbled upon.
As the new year is getting closer, I am growing older, and thoughts continuously ramble in my head… I think about what I have accomplished and have not accomplished in my life. What goals have I not set on paper? What goals have I not accomplished?
And one says, “Christine, why do let these heavy thoughts bog your mind?”
“Because” I say,”my marriage is ill, I hate where I live, I feel like I have been in purgatory for years, and I have yet to complete one of my major goals I hold dear to my heart.”
(begin the rambling)
I remember when i was a kid. I could sit for hours, draw detailed pictures of the brain (yes, I was no normal child), and locations of all where all the senses were located.
I had dreams of becoming a neurosurgeon
I loved to look at the stars and figure out constellations
I wanted to be an astronaut
I loved Halloween. I wanted to be a vampire.
I wanted a life being Indiana Jones with all of his adventures
I dreamed of going to the countryside of France – I think this is a past life issue
I used to write for hours creating books, poems and haikus.
I dreamed of traveling all of europe
Perhaps this should be my post about the 6 things you didn’t know about me
I have losts all interests in those things above. And now, I feel as though I am losing my dreams.
If you know me, you know that I am not one to sit and sulk for too long. I usually, with full force, will change my circumstances to realign my life to my pleasing. Even if changing hurts me acutely. As long as I know chronically it is better for me.
But, this time… I am at a crossroads of hardships. Why? Because my children are precious to me. And I do not know if they can survive being that bold in life. The realignments, the adjustments. Anyway, let me return to my topic!
I don’t want to lose my dreams. I have decided to do something TODAY that can get me jumpstarted back into finding my dreams. So, I think there was a coincidence that I ran into this post on Marelisa Online called, Start 2009 with a bang – Create a life list. Creating a list of all that you want to do before you kick the bucket.
Things happen for a reason. I believe this post was a fortunate sign in my life. You just have to look out for those opportunities.
Even though I am undecided about my decisions to make regarding my marriage, I have vowed to set my dreams and goals on paper. This way I can begin to work towards them by considering “what can I do today to make this dream a reality?”
Let me share a few of those dreams with you:
United Kingdom – my 6th grade puppy love lives there
Italy – trying to make it there in 4.5 years (son’s 18th; daughter’s 13th bday)
France – Bastille Day
Oxaxca, Mexico – Day of the Dead Festival
New England states – I want the colonial tour
Languages I want to learn
Things I want to accomplish
Finish a quilt
Open a restaurant
Expand my Baking Skills
Of course, these are only a few things I want to do. I still need to complete my list. I think that it is my new year resolution to step up to the plate and make some of this happen. My daughter is all with me on learning Italian. lol!
What are some of the things you would include on your bucket list?
p.s. – sorry for the personal aspect, but sometimes I just have to ramble my thoughts in order to get my brain cleared and situated.
