This post was originally written in 2015, but I thought I would reshare since this is the perfect time to put Wishful Thinking to use. Beginning planting the seeds to give them a chance to bloom in your life. I know it Works, and this post shares one of the many reasons why . . .
I have mentioned a number of times that my life caught-up with my dreams in the Peace Corps. For me that means the “pinch-me” moments came back-to-back.
Such as, pinch me: I can’t believe I celebrated Easter in 2009 with folks I barely knew, eating lamb roasted on a spit, while sipping wine along the water on the Greek Isle of Corfu in the Ionian Sea, which is just south of the Adriatic Sea and an arm of the Mediterranean and I loved every minute of it! I had an absolutely fantastic time for 5 days at a total cost of $250.
You see, there was a time when I truly believed I would never be on a Greek Island, and certainly not for only $250. (Travel booked in Europe is cheaper than you can ever imagine.) Oh, I wanted to be on a Greek island; I just couldn’t figure out how it would happen. Too expensive, too far, too many other places to go first, no time, etc., etc., etc.
I thought I had to have it all figured out for “it” to happen.
I was wrong.
And, you may be to, about your life and what is ahead.
You don’t have to have it all figured out. You just have to begin imagining what you do want. That’s what Wishful Thinking is all about.
Maybe, just maybe, during this beautiful season of rebirth and renewal, you might want to take some time to dream some impossible dreams.
Don’t worry about the details. They will work out later.
Postscript: Never sell yourself or your dreams short!
I returned to Corfu for a week in 2016 with my husband, as part of an amazing extended honeymoon in nearby Macedonia – two dreams coming true – marrying my husband Dan and another trip to Corfu. Now we both share amazing memories of two places I love, Macedonia and Corfu! We returned to Corfu in 2017 as part of a two week Mediterranean trip from Barcelona to Athens. Three times, and once all of it and many of the other wonderful parts of my life were just a dream . . .
