Has a dream ever come true for you?

Asked by notsoblond (2259points) 2 months ago

My husband and I have dreamed about moving to Wisconsin since 2000. That’s 18 years of dreaming.

We have finally made this dream come true. We will be Wisconsinites in 4 days!

What are your dreams? Did you make them happen? <3

No. Just some of my nightmares.

I’ve had a few sexual dreams come true… Always with wild consequences though….

I am so happy for your family.

In high school it seemed like a wild dream that my life would be as normal and independent as it is now.

Getting a high school diploma was a dream that I saw fulfilled.

That’s great! I didn’t know until now that you are actually making the move. Wishing you and your family well in your new home.

As for me, I’m not much of a dreamer.

I’ve always said my husband exceeded my dreams. All the qualities I wanted in a husband he had, plus he had qualities I loved that I didn’t even know to wish for. A lot of that continues to be true, but over time some of it has faded or changed.

When I was younger I guess I dreamed about having a bigger house and decorating it myself. I did achieve those things. Now, I have had even bigger houses than the house that made me feel I achieved that dream, and it doesn’t satisfy me like that first one that made me so happy.

My dreams about career never really happened. My dreams about having children never happened.

Now, I have a dream about my husband finding a more flexible job and us being able to have more fun and more travel. That might be a bad dream in the end. I don’t know if it will suit him if it happens. I don’t know if it will be a very negative thing for us financially in the end. I might be trading immediate desires for long term woes.

I never feel completely confident about dreams or goals. I always worry too much about the possible negatives I guess.

Congratulations!!! So happy for you and your family!
I’m sure I’ve had one or two come true, but can’t think of one right now.

Learning how to draw seemed impossible for me – I have ADHD and some learning disabilities, but with a lot of practice this past year I have progressed quite a bit.

Be sure to register to vote ASAP so you can get rid of that asinine governor Walker in Wisconsin.

That’s awesome! I’m from Wisconsin and I can say (without bias, of course) that it really is a beautiful state. If you are going to live in northern Wisconsin I’d suggest seeing the waterfalls. If you’re going to southern Wisconsin (Madison/ Waukesha/ Milwaukee) Find time to go up to Northern Wisconsin. I always say thats real Wisconsin anyways.

To answer your question, I’ve had a few dreams come true. Like flying an airplane :)

I’m really happy for you, Blonde. :)

You guys are the best. I’m sorry I can’t be one of those amazing jellies who responds to each and every one of you, but please know I read every post and I appreciate what you write.

@elbanditoroso I can’t wait to vote in Wisconsin! Tony Evers ftw.

@SergeantQueen My husband and I started taking our children to northern Wisconsin in 2000. We spent a week every summer for 6 years in a cabin on a lake near Eagle River. We took a couple side trips to the Porkies in the U.P. to see Lake Superior. That area is my heaven. We’re moving to Madison and can’t wait to be closer to visit the north. :)

@RedDeerGuy1 I’m sorry. I hope you can make a dream happen one of these days. You deserve it.

@notsoblondanymore Madison is really nice and has a lot of history. Lots of museums :). It’s also about 45 mins away from me :) :)

JLeslie's avatar

Madison is very nice. I haven’t been there in years, but I don’t doubt it still has a good vibe, and is probably better than ever. Just very cold! Lol. More recently we have been going to Elkhart Lake, Kohler, Sheboygan. I love it up there.
