Make a W I S H....

You know how you have those secret wishes inside of yourself?? They're just dying to come out, but we just shove them down. Excuses, excuses and mine sound something like this... impossible not the right time not good enough impossible who would care impossible Have you been there? I thought I would throw caution to the wind and just throw mine out there. Run a ECO-LODGE in Costa Rica that is totally self reliant and contained.
I envision offering beautiful villas with king sized beds and freshly air dried cotton sheets. Sipping fresh Pina Colada's while lounging next to the infinity pool that over looks the ocean. Gourmet foods prepared, of course, on site. Simple and clean recipes like free range egg omelets, banana scones with a side of hand-whipped cream, lobster salads, and grilled Maui Maui steaks topped with mango salsa. Scuba diving, snorkeling, hiking , walking on the beach and relaxing for recreation.

Work with disadvantaged youth teaching art.

When i say disadvantaged I mean handicapped in anyway; emotionally, physically, or/and financially. Art is such an expression of who we are inside and when we let that out is becomes very therapeutic.

Plus, I think all artist are a little wounded anyway, we could relate. Let's face it, we've all been wounded some how, some where.

Win the lottery and travel the world with my family and two dogs!

Is this too much to ask!


Those are my secret dreams and I've only said them out loud two times. Somehow sharing them with you puts me in that wonderfully vulnerable place that I'm learning to feel good in.

My prayer for you today is that you look inside and get familiar with your secret dreams...

And then share them with the world.


  1. I think you should go for working with disadvantaged youth teaching art like once every couple months or whatever works in your schedule. Your kids could even help. I bet everyone would love it! :)

    I'm with you on the lottery. I would love to travel to so many places. I would also use it so my husband could woodwork full time and live his dream.

  2. Thanks for the encouragement Jodi!
    I have done art camps for kids and you're right, my kids did enjoy it.
    If we won the lottery, we could do it all!

  3. go for what your heart desires...

  4. I love this post. It does make you feel vulnerable putting your deepest desires out there. Good for you. I hope all your wishes come true.

  5. Love the wishes! They are little posts to let you know what you are passionate about AT THIS MOMENT. Thanks for the encouragement from a fellow flyer

  6. at this moment is right...i've added 3 things to my wish list just since this post!

    Thanks to all for the encouragement to DREAM!
