I was skimming through a new book that just came in, and the author was talking about dreams and plans. There are some people who make plans and meticulously put those plans into action. And then there are some who just seem to go wherever the current takes them. In reading the dreams of the author, I caught myself thinking that I was over 50 and I was just too old for making new plans. WHAT!!! Did I even read my mantra? Age is an attitude, Keeps your young!Okay then, after telling myself to stop being ridiculous, I started thinking more about dreams. I am a pretty simple person, I don’t really want for a lot of things. I have a nice car, a nice house, and as you all know, I have plenty of clothing. Traveling has never really been my “thing.”
But what if you COULD go and do, what if you could have anything you wanted? Am I really that simple, or have I just started settling? I have never made a bucket list, I never liked that name. But, I could make a few suggestions for a “Dreams Really Do Come True” list.
- Visit New York City
- See the Aurora Borealis
- Appear in a magazine advertisement
- Own a pair of Charles Louboutin
- Celebrate my 50th wedding anniversary
These are just a few things that come to mind to give you an idea of what I am talking about. I read about this person who for their job, had to change their password every 60 days. It was a real pain to try to remember the new password, and she was fussing about it one day. She decided to do an experiment the next time. Newly divorced and still bitter, she wanted to let go of the bitterness. So her first 60 days password was “forgivejohn.” She said after having to type to forgive her ex-husband for 60 days, she actually did forgive him. So they next time she changed her password to “goonacruise” She typed “go on a cruise” for 60 days and she started making the plans, and went on the cruise. I think you can see where this is heading. She took a pain-in-her-side problem, and instead made it a life-changing experiment.I picked a strange topic to talk about with this outfit. Even though I paired the grays with yellow, the whole look of the outfit is still a little dark and gloomy. Maybe that I why I chose and uplifting topic. Or maybe what I was really wanting to change was this outfit. Haha Anyway, I will start with the positives. I love these yellow espadrilles by Michael Kors. I wore them in this post, which is one of my very favorite looks.
Espadrilles: Vince Camuto | Charles David | Nine WestMy yellow, white, and gray tie blouse is an old one. I don’t wear it real often, I prefer an open neck look. The tie makes me think of a business suit for some reason. I think this look would work in most office settings, you could wear long pants if your office does not allow ankle pants. These are black pixies from Old Navy. I am just shocked at how many of you had never shopped at Old Navy. They have a wide array of clothing and it is very reasonably priced. It is the less expensive and less quality version of Banana Republic.
Yellow & Gray Blouse: Floral | Tunic | Blouson
Black Ankle Pants: Old Navy (ankle) | Old Navy (long) | Old Navy (Plus)This charcoal gray jacket has 3/4 ruched sleeves. It is several years old, but I still like the way it looks and feels. It must be something about this jacket, the last time I wore this I talked about dreams also.
- Dive with the sharks
- Sing in a Broadway Show
- Climb Mt. Everest
- Hold a Tarantula
Of course, I never thought I would have a blog and wonderful readers either. And, my sister probably never thought she would be a published author. Dream, plan, and remember that “age is an attitude.” What are some of your Dreams Really Do Come True items?
