New Year’s Dreaming, Year 2
It was last year around this time I opted to give up resolutions in favour of dreams. New Year’s Dreaming for 2009. The idea was instead of giving up something, do something I really wanted to do.
Reviewing my list, I discover that out of my list of 100 dreams, I have done or am in progress with 37 of them. Pretty damned good. Have not begun lessons to speak Italian, Estonian or Mandarin, but I took several courses at University of Auckland, taken my photography up a few notches, learned photoshop, got over my fear of speaking in public (and made a few speeches) – and… finally watched Season 6 of The Sopranos! All in all, a bloody good year.
I’m advocating dreaming for everyone. Go ahead – make a list of 100 dreams. The first 25 are hard, but once you break through that barrier, they pretty much flow. And once you’ve liberated your mind and let yourself dream of something, you’re partly there… Gotta run – I got some dreaming to do…
