7 Secret Dreams

We all have our own hopes and dreams for  our lives.  Some many people may know, others we hold dear to our heart and never tell a soul about them.  About a month ago my good friend Lauren posted her dreams and yesterday Brandy, a friend from college, also posted her dreams.  Both of them have inspired me to to think and talk about my hopes and dreams.

If I am completely honest I have to say that I always have some crazy dream running through my head.  It is usually completely unobtainable and pretty laughable.  Please tell me we all have those dreams from time to time?

Most of the hopes and dreams I have spoken of before are the ones I know I can/will obtain.  Getting into Grad School.  Graduating from Grad School.  Falling in love with my job(s).  Making new friends after moving.  All of which I have either reach or know for fact  I will reach.

Today I am going to share 7 secret dreams that I have either not talk anyone or only told handful of people.  Those of you who have published a post like this, must know how nerve racking it is to put it all out there for people you do and do not know.  But here goes nothing.

1. Have Scripture Memorized
I have always wanted to be the person who could spit out a piece of scripture no matter what the situation may be.  I am not that person.  But I strive to read and learn more of the word so that I can be.  I want to study the Bible and know it.  I recently started using the She Reads Truth app and have been diving into studying the book of John.  LOVE IT!

2.  Be VERY Well Known In My Field
I do not want to be just any counselor.  I want to be the counselor that is known by colleagues and clients.  I desire to be on of the best in my fields.  Prideful much?  Maybe.  But really my heart strives to achieve this not for myself but for my current and future clients.  I want to be the best counselor for them.  Not for my ego.

3.  Write A Book
What blogger doesn't have this one on their list?  To me it explains why I love writing so much.  I do not know what I want to write about or what genre.  I just know how much I love reading and learning and want to be able to write so that someone else can enjoy or learn.  

4.  Get Married
After my stint with online dating last year, you would think this would not be on my list.  And if you know me in person than you know that I say I will never get married quite often. It's a cover up for what my heart truly wants. What girl hasn't dreamed of getting married one day?  For now though, this dream is in the distant future.  And I am ok with that.

5.  Be A Mom
As much as I love my career and want to always be a counselor, I want to be a mom one day even more.  Having kids completely excites me and terrifies me all at the same time.  What if I don't like my kid?  What if they don't like me?  I know, all things I can put off worrying about for a while!

6. Be Known As A Kind Person
When people think of me I would love to think they also think "she is so kind, sweet, etc"  I want to be a generous person. I would love for people to know how giving my heart is and how much I love being able to help anyone in anyway.  Am I always kind and sweet?  No, mostly sarcastic.  But I'm constantly working on this one.

7.  Get My Ph.D.
In what?  I am not sure.  When?  Not for a very long time.  I have always wanted to be able to be called Dr. Mosby.  And I know I am completely capable of obtaining this degree. That being said, I am completely burned out on school right now and want to focus on getting licensed before I get my Ph.D.  For my field I do not need one, but I am an overachiever and want one.

7 secret dreams made not so secret anymore.  Some of them are pretty basic dreams.  Others are pretty big ones to me.  One day I hope to look back on these dreams and be able to put a little check mark next to each and every one of them.  Until them, I will just keep dreaming bigger and bigger and bigger. As I hope each and everyone of you are!

You can't get a PhD cause then you'll have more degrees than means that's not fair.

This is wonderfully honest! I met my husband online, so don't give up! We've been happily married for 5 years with our 10 month old son!

Being honest is what I always try to achieve! I loved being able to open up and share! And I am not giving up yet in love...but I know it will happen when it is suppose to!
