Hopes and dreams

Thank you @rekitanicoledesigns for the image

So 2016 is drawing to a close and a fresh new year is on the horizon.

Today is reader participation day.

Tell us your hopes and dreams. The first things that come to mind when you read this— but NOT POLITICAL.

You can have hopes and dreams for the new year — or for the rest of your life. They can be broad or narrow.

So, what are your hopes and dreams?

  1. To finish revising the screenplay, finish writing the novel, and spend more time with family and friends. Those aren’t necessarily congruent hopes since writing requires isolation, but I will reach for the dream. 🙂

    As always I hope and wish for my family to be healthy and happy. For my food blog, I’m ready to take it to the next level. I have many ideas and hope at least a few come to fruition!
    Wishing you all the very best in 2017 Carol!

    A healthy & happy 2017 is what I look forward to ???? My daughter is getting married in 2018 so it will be fun getting geared up for that event.

  4. Donna Parker says:

    This might sound odd, but I want to discover my purpose, if I have one. And I want to finish writing my book, hmmm, maybe they’re one in the same. 😉
    Happy New Yearm Carol – all the best for 2017!!! 🙂

    My plan for the year is to finish the memoir, then finish the 2nd children’s book. I’m also reaching out to resorts and cruise lines for trading vacations for articles. A writer friend of mine suggested I should give it a go, so what do I have to lose?

  6. I love this! I hope that my future daughter-in-law is not so stressed and that the wedding goes well this summer. I love that girl and hate to see her stressed! She and my son deserve a dream wedding. 🙂

  7. I hope my husband continues in good health, I hope all of my family has good health, I hope for my cousins cancer to go away, I hope for amazing travel and lots of family time and love.

  8. Donna says:

    My hope is to understand my situation more clearly and have the strength to make the changes I need to make emotionally and physically. And there a great many. so 2017 is a year of discovery for me, new philosophies, new hopes, new dreams…..

  9. Diane says:

    My greatest dream is now to pen a NYT best-seller. Yes!

  10. I’m ready to take my blog to the next level and also get some paid writing gigs. I want to do it to travel more and because it’s fun.
