I used to have very vivid dreams as a child. Sometimes they were kinda scary, sometimes they were not. But I usually remembered them and would think about them often throughout my day. I find that an interesting contrast to how I think about dreams now. In short, I don’t spend much time dreaming. I spend time planning but not dreaming. Deb’s linkup this week has encouraged me to change that – the word of the week is dreams. Let’s talk about them! PS: Bonus points if you can tell me the song and play I’m quoting in my title to this post. 🙂
I’m not sure when planning replaced dreaming but I’m ready to bring dreaming back. Big dreams, small dreams, bold dreams and dreams that I can make come true tomorrow. Of course, I’ll still plan and still have vision boards and the like. But I’m going back to dreaming. I can’t remember the last time I just spent some time daydreaming. So what are a few of my dreams?
- BIG fat international trip. I would love to spend weeks abroad, just soaking up local culture. South Africa, Asia, Europe. I’m not too picky. Glorious.
- A BQ by 40. Yes, one of my dreams is to cut off more than an hour from my marathon time in seven years. Hey, they are called dreams for a reason, right?
- Being a homeowner. We rent right now and the idea of purchasing in DC is daunting, given what we would want. But this is definitely on my list.
- Unlimited bacon everyday. Because, bacon.
- Someone who will fold the laundry for me. This might be the dream that I’d be most excited about. Sadly, K is not that person. Sigh.

And many many more things but you get the gist. Dreaming is fun and I actually think, how can you plan if you don’t dream? Don’t ask me how I was doing it, because I don’t know. But I do know that I’m so happy to work dreaming back into my regular programming.
Thanks Deb for the motivation!
