30 Wishes for the Next 6 Months

Today is my half birthday – in 6 months I will be 30.  I thought it would be fun to come up with a list of 30 wishes that I’d love to have come true in my life in the in-between time, so here it is.

    Wow, what great and fun goals for the next 6 months!! I love so many of them and they are a balance of home, work, play and spirit… How wonder-full!!

    Just a couple of thoughts to ponder… How can you control “get a letter from a friend?” I like your goals… tho’ they should only be specific at what you can control. You can’t control whether or not someone else will fulfill your goal. This applies to having Chloe have a successful sleepover. She will develop and do that when she’s ready… not when you’re ready. Also, what does it mean to “finally control the clutter.” Again, sounds like a great goal… however, without specifics, how will you know when you’ve achieved your goal?

    I love the idea of setting goals. We all just need to remember to be specific and only set goals that we have control over completing. Good luck to you!

      Thanks for finding your way to the Womb to World Wellness page and for joining the conversation!

      There’s a difference to me between wishes and goals. The 30 wishes here aren’t about what can be controlled – they are about what my heart desires. What I can imagine that would bring me joy. What I can envision arriving in my world.

      I don’t think that we should only set goals that we have control over completing. Most things in life, including goals and wishes, take collaboration and often come to fruition in the most serendipitous of ways.

      Certainly, setting specific and attainable goals is an important way to make things happen, but to me, it all starts with dreaming big.

      Peace, Love, and Wellness,
