Welcome back to this week’s scintillating edition of the #MFRWauthor blog challenge. For week #16, our task is to write about My Biggest Dream in Life.
This one should be super-easy, right? Turns out… not so much.
I really don’t have one overwhelming dream or goal for my life. Instead, I have smaller goals that I am happy to say I can generally tick off my internal vision board once in awhile.
For example, at one time my dream was to make it through my dental hygiene degree program and pass my Boards exams (done!).
And lately, I’ve resurrected my long-ago dream of being an author (I self-published a Kindle Worlds novella, Baby, Count on Me, in 2016, so…done!).
Which means my next goal (this probably qualifies as a Big Dream) is to write-and-then-sell enough books to allow me to quit my day job. And, if I was really uber-greedy about Dreaming Big, hitting a best seller list would rank right up there, as well.
My daughter, author August Kyle, keeps a sort of “fluid” vision board active on the wall of her apartment. She constantly writes her dreams on sticky notes, replacing one or two with others as she accomplishes them. Obviously, she has a lot more dreams than I, lol!
But, if I was to construct a vision board like hers, I’d write sticky notes about the places I want to visit (in no particular order):
- Macchu Pichu
- The Great Wall of China
I’d also like to (someday) get a trailer or RV and travel throughout the U.S. Instead of hitting the highlights of one place in a quick week’s vacation, I want to be able to linger along shorelines, hike verdant trails, and indulge in the culture of an area.
