Dreams

I keep writing down my dreams, and crossing them off. Which ones are really my dreams? And which ones are just fantasies? Is there a difference? Am I being greedy by wanting such great things for myself? Some days I think so. Other days I jump on the "If I can dream it, I can do it" train. But once I peel off all the layers of these thoughts, what is it that I really want?



I just turned 32. I am working on building a life for myself now. My 20's were a learning experience full of fun and failure. Which makes sense right? So here I am standing at a crossroads. Which way should I go? The certain paved road or the uncertain dirt road? I want to leave all of these questions in the powers that be, but I need to also have some say in my life.

Back in college I wanted nothing more then to work in entertainment marketing. I went to school, graduated with honors and shipped out to Los Angeles in effort to make that dream happen. I had an experience of a lifetime but then home sickness happened. As things were slowing down and money was becoming more scarce I panicked. I booked a flight home, and on take off my dreams of entertainment stayed behind. That was 10 years ago this coming summer.

Now I am sitting here wondering, do I have a new dream? Or was that it? Did I leave it behind when I boarded that flight? It's still a question that haunts me daily. I am still very unsure of that answer. Today I am making myself a new life once again, but this time with the man I want to spend my life with. That is also my dream. Get married. Buy a house. Have children. Grow old together.

Can I have both? A family and a dream career? Is it to late to jump back into what I started 10 years ago? I'd like to say no, it's never to late, but again I panic.

Today I am linking up with Love the Here and Now for Wednesday Wishes. Today I wish for you all to follow your dreams and be happy with that path you choose!

What do you guys think? Is it ever to late to reach your dream?

  1. I definitely think dreams can change and evolve over time, and there's nothing wrong with that! As we go through life and learn more about who we are and what we really want!

  2. Dreams flow and ebb as we change and grow. Good luck!

  3. I don't think it's ever too late to reach your dreams. Unless your dream is to skydive off of the empire state building and you wait until you're 83. That might be a problem. ;) I also think as you grow and change so do your dreams. That's the beauty of life!

  8. I don't think it's ever too late to go after what you want. (I think you can have it all too.) I just think our society makes it seem at 18 we need to pick a major and have our lives and dreams all figured out and that's just...insane. It's absolutely not the case either. Think of all the big name people who didn't find success and their dreams until 40s, 50s, and beyond!
