Dreams Never End

The optimistic pessimist

Five Current Goals

This will have to be written at top speed for it is late. I have been baking Valentine cookies all day and suddenly it is nearly bedtime, but I don’t want to miss one of my 30 day blogging challenges.  Thank goodness it basically is a list again today!

5 Goals 

  • I have started to tidy and unclutter my home using the Konmari technique.  The principles in the book, “the life-changing magic of tidying up” by Marie Kondo are what I am following and it should take me about six months to complete the tidying and simplifying . This will be a blog topic in the future.
  • In 2016, I would like to complete four 5k’s and a 10k as well.  I had surgery at the end of 2015 and have yet to get back to running.  I plan to hit the road by the end of February.  Hoping I can condition up fairly quickly, since I was able to run right up until the day of surgery.
  • During the summer I will find a job.  I work in the public school system which really is great but when summer comes it is tough on the pocketbook to say the least.  So I will find something to fill the gap in paychecks.
  • I would love to take some online courses through our local college and be that lifelong learner.
  • Continuing to write in my blog long after my 30 day challenge is over. I would like to possibly start another blog as well. In it I would write reviews about random items that I might find at the store to test and critique.

Okay, well there you have it folks, my quickest entry ever!  And it isn’t very fancy either. I think I better throw in a picture to pep it up a bit!  And then I must sleep because middle schoolers wait for no one. And they will be there tomorrow with their nonstop energy.  I will blog about working at a middle school one day as well.

Cheers! JustLorelei67

What Is Your Dream Job?

I analyze everything!  If you’re telling me a story about your lunch date I will ask what you and they were wearing, what restaurant, where you sat, what you were eating and any other seemingly random question.  None of which will have one iota to do with the fact that you are now in a serious, committed relationship and you are trying to tell me your next move.  But I just love visualizing the “whole picture”.  Being able to put myself in someone else’s shoes is of the utmost importance to me and I like the stage set to partake in it.

Therefore my dream job (drum roll) /\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\  Private Investigator of course!

 

I can imagine working the case, asking the questions and analyzing the data. This would be a most perfect job for me!

______________________________________________________

This is day four of my blogging challenge.  I don’t think I would have picked this topic to write about,but I want to follow the 30 days as they’ve been liste.  I am inspired to come up with a list of things that I do want to blog about when my challenge is over. And that is pretty exciting!

If you want to share your “dream job” with me leave it in the comments below!

Dreams Never End Inspiration

Dreams Never End was inspired by a small book bag I have just put into use.  I like the saying and the picture is quite cute.  I pondered on the statement Dreams Never End and I think that it fits me.

Throughout my life I have never completely closed the door on any of my ambitions.  Now at my age [.] maybe I will never be a famous actor or go into space, but maybe I will. I can picture myself in either role.  And if I can picture myself, well I’m already halfway there.

So why not dream?  It doesn’t mean I sit around waiting for something to come to me, nor do I expect not to work toward my pertinent goals.  But it is fun to picture myself accepting Oscar, or being interviewed on the Tonight Show, traveling the world, curing cancer, being POTUS or even writing the perfect blog.  So many possibilities, I will remain hopeful that “the world is my oyster” and continue to dream.

As far as being an optimistic pessimist?  I realize these words are a dichotomy yet they both fit me well.  I think this will be a future topic!

Here is that cute book bag:
