My dream future* updated

Updated 7 May 2012 :

This is what’s been missing from this blog. All the other pages are no less important today than they were yesterday. BUT  there has to come a moment when the future beckons.  And the only way the future can beckon is if you have a future which has ideas, goals, wishes and  desires in it.  If you don’t then life does stay somewhat stuck.  The past remains all one thinks about (well it does for me) – there’s nothing else to focus on.

So today I’ve created this page.  Here is my dream (already posted at the end of December 2010).  But here I will add and update my dream.

My dream future

Work related:

To run my own business.

My  business will be a help centre which will provide a very safe haven for different types of therapy for people:

Life and Relationship Coaching (Updated Dec 2011  – with me as one of them!). May 2012 –  Ist hurdles jumped – NLP Practitioner Course completed. Ist stage Hypnosis course completed Coaching started!
divorce support groups
Alexander Technique
Practical help for people on lots of issues

It should also be a drop-in centre too.  So maybe a coffee/tea shop as well – but I don’t want it all sandals and hippy!!  And no scented candles – I so hate scented candles!

Where I live

In a lovely house with at least 3 bedrooms & 2 bathrooms.  A study.  A sewing room.  (amended Dec 2011 – I just want to buy the little cottage I’m in now!! – and save any remaining money as a nest egg) A dining room. Sitting room and kitchen.  A garage.  Not modern.  Fairly old  so it has character but in good repair.  With a  garden where I can sit out but also grow vegetables and room enough to put food down for the kites so they swoop in to feed – then I can photograph them.
May 2012 – house purchase a bit stalled but still on track!

Me & relationships

New look me.  I stand up straight.  I am funny and  am having fun and buzzing.  Interesting to talk to.  I listen.  I make people laugh.  I am confident.  Self assured. Significant.  Loved.  People gravitate towards me.

New clothes.  New look.  So I look well dressed but in a good way – not starchy.  Trendy.

My new man:

Someone who is tall, slim, not too old – a few years either side of my age is fine.  Who is solid and trustworthy, reliable, funny, teases me, cares for me.  Wants to look after me.  Won’t let me down.  Will love me. Passionate – very passionate –  but very understanding.  Will help me deal with my ‘freezing problem’ .  Will help me talk it through, who I can tell it all to,  and be so focused on me I won’t feel  tongue tied – I really want to be able to say and do anything  and so I will relax and allow myself to abandon myself in the moment, to give myself totally – all the time!

I will be loved.  Really loved.  Unconditionally loved.  Hugged loads.

But for now I want to be asked out by lots of men. AND THEY CAN ALL PAY!  I want to be sent flowers.  Lots of flowers.

People ring me up just ‘cos I am fun to talk to.  I’m wooed.


I want to go on holiday.  I want buckets of money so I can go on lots of holidays.

I want someone who wants to drive into deserts and look at the emptiness and wonder at it.  I love the isolation of remote places.

When I’m not working:

I become a brilliant photographer

I am the best actress in the am drams

I speak reasonable French – which has the bonus of being grammatically correct!!

May 2012 – Well I’m improving my photography, I’ve been in 2 Am. Dram productions in the last 12 months including doing some singing.  My French is improving and I’m about to become Chairman of our Twinning Association!

My novel is published and is a great success and is turned into a film – this gets me lots of kudos.  This needs work on!!

My blog is THE BLOG OF THE YEAR.  I get loads of hits a day and everyone is talking about it.  It’s used by life coaches and psychologists as an example of how to get over a heartbreak.  I want it to be better than “Eat Pray Love”.

  1. I am loving your blog already 🙂 I dream of a beautiful house of my own too but just dare not say it out. Maybe you have the right idea because what we put out there happens.

  2. This is truly wonderful, Caroline! Goals are so powerful. Goals are what channel discontent into action. If we don’t have a vision of who we want to be, then how can we ever get to where we want to be? I’ve learned a few things while reading your posts, and I hope to learn some more! By the way, your goal to be a glider pilot: amazing. Keep inspiring!

    • Thank you for your comment.

      As to the glider pilot. I was! I gave up gliding about 14 years ago as having gone solo in a glider before I could drive a car I think I needed a change from flying! Travel was the thing Alex and I had such fun doing! Maybe though having had a long break I will find I really do want to do it again!

  3. Caroline,
    Your dream future is so exciting! Putting it out there like this can only lead to increased accountability and shared inspiration…Keep up the hard work!

    Thanks also for popping by my blog.
    Best and brightest to you!

  4. Hi Caroline! This is inspiring. I have just started a blog two days ago and searched for blogs about NLP. I love the how you have written here your dream future. You inspire me to create mine too in my blog site. Thank you!
