Question of the week, posed by Kate Benzin:
“What dream or dreams are you planning to fulfill in 2013?”
Did you ever have a dream that you thought was completely unattainable? I sure did, for most of my life and now, it’s so thrilling to share with you:
IT WILL ACTUALLY COME TRUE!
For the occasion of our 40th Anniversary, (a major accomplishment in and of itself), my husband and I will be going to Greece; the pinnacle Bucket List item! Somebody, please pinch me, because a few years ago, I never would have believed it.
Life has not always been kind to us and sometimes, it actually seemed like we were cursed. (One of hubby’s aunts even uttered the very words, “I curse you” when she heard we were getting married. Her 100th birthday was last spring, so I guess her powers have waned. 😉 ) One string of bad luck after another, but, finally, FINALLY, things are looking up!
In addition to Greece, we will also take the opportunity to visit friends and family in Italy. Our last trip in 1990 was wonderful and I’m looking forward to going back. Even more exciting will be returning to my birthplace in Germany! Haven’t been there since 1972 and it will be fun to show hubby around.
Another dream which I hope to turn into reality next year is that of becoming a professional writer and completing a book or two of memoirs. Every since I was a little girl, writing poetry, short stories and plays, this has been on my mind. Tried very hard in my 20s to make it happen, even went to journalism school, but sadly, I let the constant rejection get to me and gave it up. 🙁 Some of life’s harsher moments also took their toll and my muse got buried – deep! Only in the last year has the desire and will to write returned and now it’s back – full force. Thank you, internet and the Blogosphere!
So, 2013 should be a very memorable year, assuming the Mayans are wrong, of course. 😉
