Lottie Loves… Finishing School – Week 4

By | July 22, 2010

This week, the fabulous Lottie over at Lottie Loves, set us the challenge

D is for… Dreams

You HAVE to dream. You have to believe that one day your life will be exactly as you want it, that one day you can attain your ideal.  If  you believe this then often you will achieve it or at least get half way to achieving it which is a damn sight better than getting nowhere.

What is your big dream? What do you dream about doing in five, ten, fifteen years time? In your wildest fantasies (keep it clean ladies!) what do you see yourself achieving? Do you long for a certain type of family life? Do you yearn to be running your own business? Do you wish to be a ballet dancer/pop star/zoo keeper? Do you want to look a certain way? Do you want to be a lawyer/brain surgeon/scientist? Do you dream of having a yoga fit slim, toned body? Are you healthy? In love?

I dream of packing up our life in the UK and moving to Cyprus.  I love Cyprus, any regular readers may remember that M  and I got married there, and we both just fell in love with the place.  I have an ideal in my head that probably doesn’t match up to what real life would ever be like but that’s ok because its mine.  I want to eat fresh fish, and grow my own vegetables.  I want it to be warm all the time and have my own swimming pool.  I want to have family bbq’s where we sit and chat about our days and plan our next adventure.

I don’t know if I’ll ever live in Cyprus, probably not but I’ll always dream. 

I also dream of M and I growing old together, of being one of those really old couples that people think are sweet.  I want to have a close family, a healthy family, a loving family.

I want to have enough money so me and my family are comfortable, a lottery win would be ideal but just enough not to worry too much will do!

Part of me  wants to have a successful career but the other part of me knows that to do that I’ll have to sacrifice time with my family and, to me, family is more important.

So there you have it, a handful of my dreams.  Some big, some small.  Hopefully all achievable but we’ll see.
