Dreams

So I just read this book, The Dream Manager (which, whether you read it for work or for yourself, you should so check out), and at the end, you get to make your own dream list (makes sense if you read the book). And, I couldn't help sharing mine.

This couldn't have come at a better time. I've been in so much upheaval that it was so great to sit back, reevaluate, and figure out what's important. It's a work in progress of course and will morph over time. Some are short term dreams and some life-long. I'm sure some dreams will become less important as new ones come along.

In no particular order, just as they popped out of my head:
  • Take a weekly dance class
  • Be a professional writer/photographer 
    • art show
    • sell pieces
    • photo sessions
    • freelance articles
    • book deal(s)
  • Plant roots:
    • Healthy relationship
    • Family
    • Have kids/adopt
    • House where I can garden and paint with space for my art
      • in a neighborhood where I can walk and take photos, with coffee shops, etc.
  • Pay off student loans
  • Speak French again and then learn a 3rd language
  • Leave country once a year
    • Top places
      • Back to Paris
      • Peru
      • Greece
      • Turkey
      • Bali
      • Egypt
      • Thailand
  •  Get accupuncture
  • Learn to bake
  • Get back to New Orleans to build
  • Start therapy again
  • Get my dad to visit Portland
  • Get a masters degree (maybe in Creative Writing?)
  • Take graphic design classes
  • Some kind of art/craft class
    • pottery 
    • sewing
    • knitting
To be continued....

Now tell me your dreams.

It looks to me like you need a MIGHTY LIFE LIST.

Some of my tops? Getting a book published, having sex every day for a month, sing Super Bass at karaoke, milk a cow.. things of that nature.

Writing a list of the things you want to do in life is a great, wonderful step. It will feel great crossing them off.

Love this list.

I tend to get panicky, like my lists aren't full of wonder like, "Enjoy a sunset" or whatever. But here is my quick list:

Own a Chanel suit
Swim every day for a week
Learn to play tennis
