I received an e-mail from a PR Agency in New York letting me know about this contest. I decided to go ahead and enter - because it was fun to write out my someday dreams!
Here is my entry:
Making Life More Special, Meaningful & Memorable
by Monica Xxxx
Someday. A powerful word that evokes many feelings and dreams!
Someday, I’d love a screened-in porch added to our home. A place that would create memories for my children - summer afternoons lazily reading or playing games, hosting friends or family for a meal or homemade treat, reaching out to our neighbors and creating a sense of community - the possibilities are endless and compelling.
Someday, I want to have a Happiness or Blessing Fund. A creative and resourceful way for me to see a need and do something about it.
Wouldn't it be fun to take out five $20 bills handing them out to those who cross my path that need it? I make an effort to bless and help those around me - but wouldn't it be amazing to be able to be more generous and giving to those I may not even know?
Someday, I want to travel to a place where children don’t know what getting a gift is like. To partner with an organization such as Samaritan's Purse and help hand out shoebox gifts to these children. I know how much I love celebrations and I would love to make that dream a reality for others.
In summary, my "someday" dreams are centered around making the lives of others more special, meaningful and memorable, which will enrich my life as well.
The key to successful "someday" dreams is enjoying and appreciating each day we have. Thank you for the opportunity to share my "someday" dreams!
