My Dream World

In my dream world
I would live in a place I could call home year round. 
 A place where I have time to volunteer, 
to be apart of something, to have a creative outlet.
A place where I have all my girlfriends together to giggle with 
and reasons to giggle about.
A home where I could have a few gold fish and plants and keep them alive.
A home that was open to my friends and family, 
to visit, to share, to be loved in.
In my love world
I would have a partner, who tucks me at night 
and kisses my toes goodbye in the morning before I wake.
He would be my best friend, my "go-to" man, my chuckle, my love. 
He would get me, laugh with me, share with me, 
tease me, set me straight when I get off course 
and have just as many imperfections as me.
I would have a toddler or two running around me saying "mommy, mommy!"
In my earth world
I would have a garden, bringing new things to life, 
so that I could remind myself of how delicate we 
must treat ourselves in order to flourish.
I would live in a community that has recycling.
I would not be wasteful.
I would not over spend
I would love the earth with all my might.
In my bring home the bacon world
I would work for myself.
I would have a great year round business that kept me busy... 
but not too busy.
My business would give back to the community in amazing ways.
I would feel challenged, excited, with new ideas and projects!
En mi mundo creativo
I would speak Spanish fluently. (Yo hablaria espanol con fluidez.)
I would write my Dad's story, and it would make him cry with joy.
I would be surrounded by art that moves me.
I would take music lessons.
I would go to concerts monthly as music lifts my spirits.
I would dance.  Let me repeat that: I. Would. Dance.
I would choreograph for a show and finally show the world my ideas.
I would challenge my body to do things I never thought possible,
 such as rocking a trapeze bar.
In my spiritual world
I would have a deeper relationship.  
I would actually want a deeper relationship.
I would understand faith, and absolutely, without a doubt, 
believe that He hears my prayers.
I would learn to meditate.  I would sit still.  I would listen.
In my "taming the gremlin" world
I would worry less, be more patient, more kind and breathe in .... and out.
I would hear people, not just their words, but their soul.
I would stop multi-tasking and focus on one thing at a time.
I would be more grateful for the things I have, and ignore the things I don't.
I would be okay with my imperfections.
I would stop controlling things and let go... I would let go.
In my dream world
I would feel free, not stuck, not forced to be some where.  
I would be surrounded by people who love me and people I love.
I would ride my bike to work,
sing to songs on the radio,
and have a hand to hold in my dream world.

Beautiful! Thank you for sharing!

Don't you deep down believe that our dream worlds could actually work out in the end? I do!

Alisa,

Your dream world motivated me to write mine. Now I have something to read when I need to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Thank you!
