Dreams and plans! Do you have some? I'd love to hear them.

I remember hearing awhile back that Oprah was ending her show!  I couldn't even imagine why she would be doing that. To me, she has the dream job!  As with anyone we can look from the outside and think that they have all that they need but in reality we do not know what anyone desires.  She has done great things on her show but to end it left me wondering what would happen next in her life.  

 Just recently and it has been confirmed that she will be launching OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network on January 1, 2011! OWN programming will include original series and specials, all focused on entertaining, informing and inspiring people to live their best lives. Oprah is creating her OWN network! How cool is that?  She might have had the dream job but now she is taking all that she has learned and moving onto a new adventure! I wonder how long this dream has been in the works for her?  A dream this big takes time and money!

How about you? Do you have any dreams and plans for the future?  TwitterMoms.com (Soon to be called SocialMoms.com) and the OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network is calling for blog submissions in honor of the new year, new year’s resolutions and living the best lives we can. 

 They are asking for us to share our own dreams and plans for new possibilities in our own lives!  Here are a few of mine:

 I love my life and what I have been blessed with.  I have 3 girls, two are 16 and will start college classes in the Fall.  Since turning 15, their lives are speeding past me.  Soon they will be out of the home and onto their own adventures.  I want to really sit down and talk to each one and find out what it is that they are dreaming about.  I want to spend time with each one individually and see if I can help them and give some guidance with their own dreams and help them see what possibilities are ahead.  

I really want to focus in and take care of the zillions of photos I have in my home.  I have many scrapbooks finished but many more to create.  I haven't scrapbooked in 5 years. I need to plan to take our photos and record what we have done as a family.  I want to have books for each girl so they can look back and see what they have done.  Photos give us a glimpse of where we have been and what we have accomplished.  I want these scrapbooks for the girls to take with them and for me to have to hold onto when they leave the home and go off to their own. 

I really want to take on some real culinary challenges in the up and coming year.  I want to take time to sit, plan and do all the research on meals from other cultures.  We do not have the money to travel so I need to get creative and do some research on places I'd love to go to and find out what they eat and drink!  I really want to pull my girls into this as well.  We've done things like this in the past but for one meal here and there.  I want to do this for the entire year. 

As with any dream you have to have plans.  I believe that once you write down some of your dreams you are more likely to follow through and start making plans to follow them.  How about you? DO you have a dream to share? Are you planning something for yourself? For your family? I'd love to hear them!
