When I was in massage school one of my teachers had us write down some goals of things we wanted to do before we died. I realized today just how many of them I've gotten to in the past five years. Yoga, belly dance, being in a band, leaving my ex, getting married, buying a house...
The best one however, was finding that person who I could spend the rest of my life with. I realized something when I was in Disney for our honeymoon. I'd grown up on Disney, on the movies and the songs. On the idea of being a princess.. that my prince would some day come. I also realized that the first (or maybe the third or tenth) time my heart was shattered by a failed love I let that dream go. It wasn't until I was there, gazing at the castle that I realized my dream had come true. I had found my prince. He had come.
Right now I can look down onto my computer desk top at my check book. It's Disney themed since I returned, and it reads, "The magic of life is everywhere for those who look." I had a choice when I started dating my husband, to fall or to not. I had been so devastated by the relationship just prior to him that I didn't think I could ever take that chance again. Thank the Goddess I did.
My life seems to be going so well right now. I mean, I'm poorer than I've ever been, but I'm getting A's in all my classes. I was happy to get by in my classes before. Now I'm whole heartedly going after the best grades I can get! I'm dancing more, working on my technique. I want to go pro, not to make money off of it, but to have reached that level. My band is on hold for now, but a few days ago my vocal therapist gave me the go-ahead to start singing again. Our house has finally reached that point where it looks like it's ours. Our gardens are filling out, we have grass in the back yard! The walls have been painted and repairs have been done. It's gone from slightly worrying to a cute, comfortable place that is ours.
Have to be getting to school now, just had to post.. this community doesn't get enough use and that's sad. The idea behind it is so great. I would love to hear your accomplishments too!
