dreams

Shortly after I checked out “The Secret” that I realized something.
I didn’t know how to dream.

Oh, I spent many a night running from boogeymen, but by day I couldn’t dream I’d ever win a million, fall in love, or vacation in Dominica. All I knew was working and doing my day to day thing, and that someday… I’d die. There was no in-between time and no better-than-I-know-now time.
When I read what “The Secret” had to say about visualizing, though, I realized that if I didn’t come up with some sort of plan that was all that I was ever going to get, so I tried vision boards and positive affirmations and making changes in my daily life to open up the oportunity for the Universe to help me along.
Even with buying a house and changes at work though, I still wasn’t doing very well.
Then, I talked to my sister the other day and she said something that caught my attention.
We’d been talking about having bought houses so far from each other and wondering why life had taken us down these paths lately when she said ‘maybe we’ll spend winters at your house and summers at mine…?’
At first, I didn’t see it. I mean, I hate driving to Toronto so how the heck was I going to make it to Nova Scotia? But, the more I thought about it, the more the idea appealed to me.  
‘Well, I could have a friend watch the house for me…’
So, it’s taken almost two years but it seems I’m at least learning to dream. Now, with having bought the house, I can look forward to the future and dream of doing improvements to it or puttering in the garden I’ll build over time. I can also look forward to extended vacations in the East with my sister, and possibly building a buisiness we can run from either home. I have my kids and granddaughter in my life too, so I can look forward to teaching and playing with her and maybe some day my son will have a child too.

Of course, I still need to work on believing I deserve love and prosperity and other issues, but at least now I can fill in the in-between time a little.
