Dreams, Dreamt, Dreaming

By this wonderful age of 51 I can honestly say I have had the most important of my dreams come true.

Im married to my best friend for nearly 31 wonderful years
Together we have a 23 year old son for which we are very proud

By this wonderful age of 51 I can honestly say I wish for some things to have been different

I thought by now perhaps we would be living in a larger home or apartment
I thought by now perhaps we would have had more of our debts paid

I dont stop dreaming.
I am a huge believer that wishes and dreams can come true
I am a huge believer that these wishes and dreams will come true even faster now that I am 51

I keep my eye on my vision and every day work towards the goal

While I am on this journey I truly try to live every day to its fullest
We are only guaranteed this monent so I live it the happiest ways possible.

When I was younger I used to feel that each day was the same and I would tire of the old mundane chores and wish they would go away and that life would be more fulfilling. Life does get routine and sometimes difficult however we must remember that each day is like a fresh canvas. I now instead of grumbling and defining my chores as gray boring and mundane say instead Im blessed to have something for my hands to do and people to love...

We must change our attitude. What our life is today could change in the blink of an eye so dont focus negatively on the things for which you wished had been different. Take a moment to plan what you would like to change. Each day smile and take the baby steps necessary to get to that goal. Make the journey happy not resentful while your dreaming.

The important thing is getting and seeing your goal or vision in your mind. Without a goal it is like going on vacation without a map. You will wonder around feeling lost and not know what direction for which you need to go.

Dreams have come true, the things that I had dreamt of are still in my vision and I continue to dream because I know it is never to late to fulfill them. It takes hard work and dedication. You also however have to take care of the dreams that have already come true. I truly feel if we do not care for the things we have already been blessed with why would we ever feel deserving of more?

Please tell me, what is your map or goal for your journey
Please tell me some of the dreams that have already come true
Please tell me what your wishes are
Please tell me how you live and smile each and every day!!
I would love to hear them.

I hope together we can make today the start of dreams come true time. Times we wake up every morning excited for the new day and put our heads on the pillow fulfilled every night. Together we can help each other at this wonderful chapter of our lives.

Please join me on the journey.


  1. Hi 50+,
    Thanks for the invitation. I am definitely 50 plus!! Perhaps 60 plus would be more fitting for me..lol I'm a 63 year old woman who has been blessed every day with the ability to enjoy my life. I am married and have two grown children and two grandchildren. My grands are my treasures and I enjoy every chance I get to be with them. When I had to work, I never got to see them much. Our schedules didn't work out very well. But now that I have all the time I want, I get to visit with them as often as I like. We have grown so close and It's wonderful when your Grandson of 11 just can't wait for his next break from school to come down and share it with us. I make sure that he is spoiled as much as possible during those weeks...(smile). Some earlier parts of my life weren't so great. But I feel that God was just working things around to get me to where I am now. I am so blessed with a Christian husband who loves me and is a good provider, a family that loves me, and a life full of friends. I thank God every day for what He has put in my life. I thank Him also for our introduction. Perhaps it will grown into a great friendship?! Ann

  2. Hi Ann...thanks for posting this wonderful comment. It most certainly sounds to me like many of your dreams have indeed come true...sometimes we are faced with tests of our endurance but with hard work and dedication things turn around. thanks for sharing your story with me. it has me believing even more that dreams most certainly can come true....I hope we also will grow our friendship together...Donna

  3. Good day Donna!
    Thank you for this encouraging blog. I am usually optimistic but have had the February blahs and my days have become routine. I work with a great bunch of people in a small local store. Always laughs and smiles (and sometimes hugs) for staff and customers alike.
    My long term goal is to be a grammie. Well I've been married to my soulmate for 34 yrs., have three grown children, my son married and my daughters recently engaged so I've done my part to reach this goal. :)
    Another goal is to declutter my house of 30+ years of adding to it. Yes, I'm a flybaby too!
    Have a great day!

  4. hi Faye...thank you for writing. Im laughing because I have a 23 year old son who is not married yet but just the other day...our niece and our nephew both had babies..one in august and one in december and we saw everyone on saturday and while I was holding them (both baby girls) I jokingly said Im putting in my request for a grandaughter right now...i already have a son....I want to buy girl things lol...so I can relate..my long term goal is to be a grammmie too...it seems however your dreams have begun to come true. you also are married for a long time now and you refer to him as your soulmate...that is beautiful....and you have a beautiful family...sounds like the ingredients for a dream come true to me. It should not stop you from continuing dreaming though...no more feb. blahs...a few more days and it will be march..yippee!!!!
    thanks again for writing and hope you will do so again soon...
