Dare to dream

pic taken by me many years ago

Life is a funny thing.  Remember when you were young and you couldn't wait to grow up, be an adult, and get out from your parents home and live life? You even dared to dream and on a regular basis. My dreams....... I  was going to be a movie star, an artist, a track star and a dancer. Yes, I was going to be all those things.

Do you remember your dreams, what you were going to be, what you dreamed to be?

Recently during one of my blog stampedes I ran across a very interesting question- you know the type of question that makes you say hmmm. I can't say that I have the exact answer yet, but I am working on it.  So let me throw it out to you.  In 50 years, what do you want your life to look like? Even more simply put, where do you want to be in 50 years?

Yes, it is easy to say I want to be in a nice place or I want to be at a certain level financially but I am referring to something a little deeper than that...lately I have been reopening the door to those dreams that I dared to dream way back when; those same dreams that somehow have gotten buried under the sands of time. No, I do not want to be a movie star, a track star or a dancer.

As I matured, so did my dreams. I dreamed of owning my own gallery, of owning a home,  and traveling around the world; just to name a few. As time has changed, so have my dreams and my ability to dream BIG got lost in the real world.  I have decided to bring some of my dreams into the future and make them a reality....hoping that where ever I am in 50 years, I will not have any regrets on not fully living my life....living out my dreams.

What are your dreams? 
Where do you want to be in 50 years?


  1. In 50 years . . . wow! Well, I want to be sitting back looking at my oldest girl, smiling and saying, "You Go Girl" as I see her living her dream.

    You Go Girl!

    Love, Dad

  2. Dad, Thank you for the encouragement!

  3. In 50 years, I am going to be 86 and I expect to be struttin' my stuff like a peacock. I better be teaching a tai chi class in the park every morning and loving life.
