I have had my future preoccupying my mind lately. More precisely defining what it is I want/see for myself in the near/distant future, and especially noticing the difference between the goals I dream about now and what I thought I wanted a couple of years ago. I feel its important to define these goals for myself, some simpler than others, simply to be able to bring them up to mind easily should I ever question myself as to the probability of ever reaching them. And as they say, a picture is worth a thousand words...
I hope that I will always be able to somewhere and somehow set some time aside for a cup of tea and a few pages of a good book. It sounds simple and I know some would question why this would even be a goal, but days go by so quickly that one forgets simple pleasures and gets caught up in a vortex of due dates and must do's.
I want a family. With many many little ones.
I think this one is self-explanotory. I want to retain my joy in the greatest gift I have ever received, life. And as corny as this sounds, I feel like I have great challenges ahead of me, and if there is one thing I want to pull through with, its just a feeling of inner joy at life in all its forms.
No, I dont want a pile of quilts, I want to learn how to quilt! :)
My future home will have a warm kitchen, not modern and cold, but inviting and large enough to move around freely yet small enough to be cozy. I daydream about my future kitchen quite often, actually.
I will have a vegetable and herb garden that will produce beautiful and fresh produce that I can use in my homey kitchen. Also a couple of fruit trees. Mmm.
Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you too can become great.
