Life Long Goals:

Before the end of my days I would like to:

  1. Hug my children every day no matter how old they get and watch them grow into successful adults with families of their own.
  2. Write a book and have it published.
  3. Take my kids to Disney World and someday go to Hawaii.
  4. Love the man of my dreams till the end of time.
  5. Move into a big house in the suburbs.

I love lists. I will make a list of things to do just for the sake of crossing them off! I do not only have life long goals but also career goals and I keep a running to-do list of things that need to be done around the house, constantly prioritizing the items and changing them around. But this is a special to-do list; this is my life long to do list. I never want to let go of what I aim to do over the years, nor do I want to wait till it’s too late. So I know I need to start planning now for getting that book off the ground, and I plan to start scheduling over the next 12 months to set a date for that trip to Disney World and later I will have to plan Hawaii.

So obviously, most of these are “somewhat” in my control. I do have to save the money to take the trips; and perhaps get a raise to move into the house of my dreams in the suburbs; but I know that I also rely on God’s timing because it is important as well.

And I really do believe that in His timing He will also bring this “man of my dreams” into my life. I just hope it’s not like the dream I had last night! I dreamt I met “the perfect guy.” I got excited even when I was talking to him on the phone. He made me feel all “tingly” and warm when he came into the room. But just before I woke up, I was standing in a crowded room talking with him. It was like we were the only ones in the room for that moment as he told me he felt the same way about me, and he took my hand in his. Then as he walked away and released my hand, I looked down and saw a wedding ring! Not exactly what I mean when I say, “man of my dreams,” by the way, because even in my dreams lately, the relationships are a failure before they begin!

Now it’s your turn.

  • What are your “life long goals?”  Do you have three to five you could share?
  • What do you think about this CRAZY dream?

For you to love lists as you do, there are 2 websites you MUST check out:
1. 43 things - a friend sent me this a while back, and it's TONS of FUN.

2. Listography - this is also sold in journal form, which I have and write in constantly!!!

Google them!!!

I love list too...have several of them...it's the only way I can stay on task...but unfortunately for me...it's also my reminder of what could have been for a lot of things....my "life goals list" probably should be changed but I did this back in high school I think.
1. Go to UNC @ Chapel Hill and play basketball.
2. Become a member of a WNBA team
3. Marry the man of my dreams (my best friend)
4. Have a couple kids - live in a house that I designed.

At this point it doesn't look like any of my lifelong goals/dreams are going to be met...think I should probably re-evaluate.

I don't really believe in goals. (Says so right at my blog.. hee hee) But I am writing a book. Slow but sure.

You have a very nice blog and a very nice family here. Love it!

(Found you at Dadshouse.)

Woah. Crazy weird dream! Just had a few myself but they weren't as pleasant. Maybe the dream was to prepare you, so you can start to really, really get your heart and mind there b/c he's on his way.

If you haven't read it - pop over to my blog and read Morgan's account of falling madly and deeply in love. It's awesome!
