Dreaming of Experiences

I just love posting semi-relevant pictures of hot guys when I blog.

The other day, I was having a lovely chat with my good friend and fellow blogger boskers, and like the good Mohos we are, we talked about dreams, goals, and the Mormon church. After boskers told me a couple of his dreams, I proceeded to list off a bunch of goals I had. (i.e. The typical graduating from college, finding a guy to marry, having kids... white picket fence, etc.)

I paused. Why did I want to do all this? Why didn't I want to delve into the inner me in the process of "Finding Myself" and discover true acceptance? These thoughts reminded me of an article I read about how happiness can be measured by the number of experiences one has.

I thought about this at my friend's sister's school play as well. I want to have kids. I want to drive them to soccer practice, help them rehearse their lines, accept their macaroni art. Hell, I'd even throw a football around with them if I had to.

I want to fall in love and then be heartbroken. I want to surprise my little sister by taking her out to lunch when she's at school. I want to be kissed in the rain. I want to chaperone toddlers around at Disneyland and watch their faces light up when they meet The Little Mermaid.

I want, I want, I want... I'm starting to sound a little pathetic, aren't I?


  1. Not pathetic at all. Those are good desires.

  2. I would like the "falling in love" without the "being heartbroken" part- much funner that way! :)

  3. It doesn't have to be a dream for you.

  4. Haha...
    no offense, but you are pathetic if you dont try to work out to fulfill those dreams.

    But, to dream is the first good step. Thus u will know the reason of what u are doing. ^_^

  5. You want to be heartbroken? ...crazy!

  6. That was a good conversation. And I like the way this post sums up some of what we were talking about. We should do that again some time. :)

  7. Nothing wrong about dreaming! Nothing wrong about wanting! It's got to start somewhere.

    The worst is when you lose that dream or want, and you just don't care!

  8. I think the main reason I want to be heartbroken at least once is so that I can experience a full range of emotions. I want to say, "Hey. I feel you," to somebody, or be able to sing along to a heartbreak song and actually know what they mean.

    And hey, opposition in all things, right? My joy will be greater once I've experienced despair.

  9. It is crazy to me that so many of us want those exact same things...Maybe it is the normalcy of it all, the chance to have kids that will never judge us immoral for our "heinous tendencies" Ehhh, who knows. I hope you receive all of those and more, I hope you get picked up, and carried away by the man of your dreams :)
    Have an awesome night!
