October Daily #16~What are your goals and dreams for the future? You can share to us your dream house, dream workplace, or even your bucketlist before you turn 25!~In my case more like 40 (in 4 short years!).
Dreams, good or bad, we all have them.
Last night, I had the worst dream possible. It started out that for some reason before bed my upper back/neck was bothering me. I felt like someone was stabbing me in between my shoulder blades.
For those who know me and follow me, you probably are aware that I go to a chiropractor for my lower back, but every once in awhile now my upper back bothers me, too. I am sure working all week long on the computer doesn’t help my cause. But I digress.
I laid down to relax, watching old reruns of 90210, because 1993 and Senior year was and still classic to me. I fell asleep and somewhere during the night, i began to dream, but this was an awful dream actually more a nightmare.
It started out simple enough with me picking up my girls from what appeared to be school (only it didn’t look like their pre-school). Emma got upset about something and she began to cry. I bent down letting go of Lily’s little hand. The next thing I knew, I couldn’t find Lily. It was awful and gut wrenching. I ran the length of the school still holding tightly to Emma’s hand, while trying to find Lily. Someone eventually stopped me and simply said, “They took her, she is gone!”
I realized that Lily had been kidnapped, but I couldn’t get to her or find her. I woke up at 5 am and couldn’t go back to sleep for fear that I would re-enter that dream. I got up and first checked Lily’s bed, where she was sound asleep. I touched her to make sure she was real and there. Then, I did the same with Emma, who also was very much asleep and there.
But I admit I was spooked in the dark, loneliness of my house at that time and sleep or dreaming never happened again that night. I got up and just started to work, stiff neck and all.
Here is the thing, I do have wonderful dreams and bucket list, where everything is indeed perfect and definitely not a nightmare.
The prompt mentioned what I would like to have accomplished by 25 years of age, well I hit 25 over 11 years ago and now this bucket list is what I would like to have by the time I hit 40 years old, which is now less then 4 short years away (yes this freaks me out a bit, probably why I wanted to see This Is 40! so badly, because yes I can relate to really not wanting to hit this number). When I was in my twenties, I am not going to lie, forty seemed old and so far off. Now that it isn’t really far away for me, I have a few short dreams that I would like to make come true for me and my family, too.
My Dreams & Goals for When I Turn 40~
- Buy and live in our home. We are getting closer each day to this one~so stay tuned.
- Take the girls to Disney before they get to old that they won’t look at the Princesses like they corny or cheesy, but more like they are still quite magical.
- Have J9 Designs and my blog, too become a household name (this one would really be the cherry on the cake)!
- Wishing for good health continued for both my parents, because as I get older so do they and definitely couldn’t bear to loss either of them yet.
