What was your dream come true in 2011? What is your wildest dream for 2012?
I have been extremely blessed this past year. Many things have occurred in my life which has allowed me to not only change my beliefs and expectations (resulting in much more happiness and contentment and much less drama), but have spurred me into actually moving towards my dreams (as opposed to just talking about them). As I mentioned before, I ran my very first marathon in June. It was a dream come true and a pivotal point in 'proving' to myself that I am capable of over-coming my self-imposed doubts and limitations. I was surrounded by friends and loved ones and I was fortunate enough to run it with a wonderful friend, truly a blessed event.
But something else occurred which I never thought would happen. My boyfriend of 2 and 1/2 years proposed. I was shocked and amazed and certain that he was just kidding. When we first started dating we had discussed marriage and his utter disdain for it, basically letting me know up front that if I ever wanted to get married we shouldn't date. Having been married before, I had no desire to do it again...at least not any time soon. Fast forward two fantastic years later, to the banks of Lake Michigan, while we were on vacation visiting his brothers, that man got down on his knee, held up a beautiful ring and asked me to be his wife. And he wasn't joking. I might not have led on that I had been secretly hoping and dreaming of to be his wife, but this is hands-down my dream come true for 2011.
