...Fid-dle-dy Fad-dle-dy Foodle. All the dreamers in the world, are dizzy in the noodle." (Cinderella, Rodgers&Hammerstein) Honestly, I'm one of those that believes if you want something bad enough, then you'll work your butt off to get it, otherwise, you could care less either way. These are a few of my "ideals" or dreams, if you will. What I desire most, cannot be explained in words, but if I had to, these are the words I would use:
Man – Handsome; well groomed. Intelligent; a thinker. Easy to talk to, easy to understand. Arms that make me feel safe; protected. A smile that’s genuine and kind. Hard worker. Patient. Loving. He doesn’t need to be rich or refined, but instead, knows the value of earning an honest living. Caring father. The sole protector of my heart, my home, and my family.
Job – Teaching. Learning. Traveling. Singing. Dancing. Making people happy. Giving and taking in wisdom/knowledge. Giving someone a purpose; a goal. Filling someone’s day with joy. Paperwork. Good paycheck. Ringing phones. Desk. Computer. An environment welcoming to all.
Home – Location not important. Size; medium (three bedrooms, at the most. Of course, depending on the size of the family). Updated kitchen; doesn’t need to be brand new. Living room with an open space concept connected to the kitchen. Family and friends coming to visit often. Backyard; a must. A porch with a swing.
Life – A big family. Having a job I love. Waking up next to the love of my life. Spending the day with those I love. Vacationing during those holidays people usually vacation during. And, never having to wonder, again, about what my life would’ve been like if my past had been different; better.
Now that I've put it out there, it's time to get to work. Dreams don't happen on a whim, and they don't come true by merely wishing it.
