Not too long ago, I came across a request on a FB group to see if anybody would be interested in doing a Blog Crawl. Being new to the blogging world, I thought, well this could be fun. So I signed up. Then I started seeing these beautiful stories these amazing bloggers were writing. Not sure if mine will even compare but here we go.
We were tasked with writing about our dreams and how we dream. I am a dreamer with this crazy imagination but my feet are firmly on the ground. Kind of a mouth full right? I am a dreamer but my dreams are more like my goals. I am a mom of 4, a soon to be wife, I have a full time job, I’m part of several different communities where I write or actively participate in convo, the list can go on and on. So even tho my head may be high in the sky, my feet are firmly planted because I know in reality what I need to accomplish each day.
When I was a child, this wasn’t the case. My head was always up in the clouds. I thought for sure that I would become a back up dancer for a boy band. Yeah- that never happened. Then I would become a moderately famous librarian- again no and I don’t know why I only wanted to be slightly famous. I wanted to marry a semi-famous person as well- Nope. And I would name my first born after Mufasa, after The Lion King- again, no.
My biggest dream I have now and the one I hope I am doing and working towards is that I want to be as supportive to my kids as my parents are to me. My parents have always been there for me and still are every day. They are my biggest fans. Thru thick and thin, they have always stood by my side. Now saying all that, I may not have known it at the time, but they have always had my dreams and my needs in mind. Growing up my mom was a stay at home mom. She was there when we left for school and there when we came home. If we had a bad day, she would pry it out of us. If we had a good day, she would laugh with us. My mom made sure that she was there for us every step of the way. My dad did the same but he worked a lot of hours. These two people I hold in such high regard. I would not be the person I am today without their love and support. They are simply amazing people who truly have loved me thru thick and thin. I hope I can return the favor to my own kids.
Now that I have a family of my own and starting a whole new chapter in my life, I’m realizing that I have accomplished a huge dream of mine. I’m happy. That sounds so simple, but it really isn’t. Being happy has so many variables and so many different facets. A few years ago when I was going thru a divorce this dream seemed unattainable and one that I never thought would happen. I look back at those few years and don’t really even recognize who I was. It was a really hard time for me and I don’t think I even knew it then. Now that I’m in a healthy stable relationship with the man that will soon be my husband, I feel like everyday I am blessed and truly living the dream. We have 4 amazing kids between us. Our house is a happy one even with the brooding teenagers. There are no cross words with each other. We share laughter and each night tell each other we love each other and give night night hugs. Even the 13 year olds! Our house is so happy because our hearts are happy and content. Saying that doesn’t mean we don’t still want and desire different things. It just means our core is happy and we appreciate each other in both actions and words.
And I really think that is the best way to go thru life.
Have you ever sat down and asked yourself what your dreams are? Maybe even one attainable dream and one that is just so crazy that it truly is up in the clouds? I think having dreams are important for each of us. And when you are able to achieve that dream, the feeling is like no other. Think about it. Maybe think about it while you are drinking a spot of tea.. . . . . .
And on November 7th, I will becoming this man’s wife. . .Another dream I’ve had since the day I met him. .(well maybe not the first day but close enough)
