I guess you all probably figured that dreams are important to me.
I guess the name of the blog gives the clue.
But I don't mean dreams you have when you are sleeping. Actually I especially don't mean those sort of dreams as Nigel thinks I only have bad dreams not good. I don't scream as much in mys leep as I used to but wouldn't want to celebrate or investigate sleepy dreams at all.
I mean day dreams. Dreams of what you would like to do and achieve; dreams for the future. I guess some of them are goals and could be quite realistic, but some are just dreams. Things that may never ever happen but you like to dream of.And I think that is a good thing ... a nice thing ... a thing to put a smile on your face when you didn't have one.
I think dreaming is good. I think it gives things to aim for. It mustn't become all consuming but I actually think that without dreams life would be vanilla!
I used to have the famous line from Snow White in my signature on all sorts of forums. I only removed it as there were other things I had to put in my signature.
A dream is a wish your heart makes
And dreams for me have a very strong Disney connection. I remember the first time I ever went to a Disney Park ... It was Disneyland in California, arriving there three days after even going to America was ever mentioned. It was a whirlwind of a holiday and whereas going to Disneyland had been a dream since I was little girl and wanted to see where Tinkerbell lived, I never thought I would go. But I did. And revisited a further 4 times.
I loved Disneyland and for many years we didn't want to go to Florida as it wasn't 'the real thing' ... we thought. Oh my how wrong we were. We visited Walt Disney World for the first time in 1993 - again and impulse decision - and we were hooked. Well and truly.
And the reason for all of this reminising about dreams and Disney is that we are now dreaming of planning our 10th trip to Florida to the place where dreams come true.
This year I am using my LSNED to focus on quotes tied in with my thoughts and so today's page was one of the easiest to do.
Today I am thankful for
- dreams - they enrich daily life
- a soul mate who shares the same dreams as I do
- A day to relax
