Yep, Ireland. In 2012.
I’m going to Ireland.
That’s five years. Should be able to save that much by then.
As I was reminded by a good blogger-friend, Bonnie-Rose, one must have a goal in mind to strive toward.
To try to reach your goal willy-nilly is silly.... (or stupid,.. but silly “went” with willy-nilly better)
We all know that – it’s the doing that I have always had troubles with.
Why is it we often know what best for us and what’ll make us feel better, but we just don’t do it?
Like, when you have the flu or a bad cold. You KNOW you’ll feel better if you shower, brush your teeth, put on comfy jammies, toasty socks, and lay down in bed.
Not look crummy, feel crummy and watch TV on the uncomfortable couch all day and feel sorry for yourself – but do we do that?
Well, maybe you do, but I don’t.
Not all the time anyway. I just whine and moan and feel crummy. And uncomfortable. And I don’t really sleep. And I really NEED to sleep.
So, anyway, I am going to Ireland in 5 years. I will make a “dream board” with all I can find on Ireland: beautiful photos, bed & breakfasts, smiling Irish faces, and, of course, the costs.
I once heard someone say to try to reach your goal without some sort of direction is like having a pilot fly you to your destination without maps or instruments, because, hey , he’s been there before… …
I'd rather him use a map. I 'd rather have a map, too.
HEY, I could put a map of Ireland on my board...
So, map out your dreams. Place them in front of you where you can see them on a daily basis.
And DREAM BIG!
