Gah, I am a day behind again. Yesterday was kinda spent relaxing and running errands, so my apologies once again!
Today’s Yesterday’s #scintilla prompt came from their Twitter account again (which, on another note, is slightly annoying, because I frantically check my email to look for a new prompt only to find that it’s not there, but on Twitter. I think the creators should fix this for next week, honestly).
I don’t really consider dreams to be entirely impossible. There’s a difference between the impossible dream and the attainable goal.
That being said, I try and make only small, attainable goals, because there’s less disappointment if it doesn’t happen the way I want it to. Years ago, I dreamt of being an architect. Sure, I probably could have met that dream if I tried. And I did try. I started school for it. But I fell in love with photography and went in a different direction.
So, I have some attainable goals, and they may not happen any time soon. I’m cool with that, honestly. I am not in any particular hurry to do it, so I can work on getting there.
I want to go to Europe with Mr. Fox and photograph iconic buildings and landmarks and make gigantic prints of them to decorate our home.
Have you ever been to IKEA and saw those ginormous prints they have for sale? They have one of Paris and London, and some of some other places in the world. I recently made a mental list of all the prints that I wanted for our home. They’re $50 each, and for the amount that I want, I would be spending upwards of $500 or more for them. So I decided I would much rather put that $500 into a trip to Europe so I can take my own photos.
I would love to go to Abbey Road and do the iconic Beatles shot, walking across the street. I want to go to the Eiffel Tower and take beautiful shots of it from all angles. Big Ben. The Louvre. Piccadilly Circus. Buckingham Palace. L’Arc de Triomphe. So many more that I cannot think of at the present moment.
Attainable? Yes. Impossible? Certainly not. A little saving (okay, a lot) and determination, and we can make it happen. Taking baby steps to our goal is the only way to do it. Maybe the first step will be getting our passports. I mean, we’ll need them for Canada (we eventually plan to get there, preferably Montreal or Toronto) anyway, so we might as well, right?
The point is, nothing is impossible, if you have the will, drive, and determination to get there. No matter what it is, be it a huge weight loss, a vacation of a lifetime, or that big promotion you’ve been wanting. If it’s something you want more than anything in the world, you’ll do every thing in your power to get it done.
