Secret Wish


Do you have a secret wish? I have too many. About two years ago I asked my friend if she had one and if so, what is it? She always felt dumb telling anyone, but luckily she told me. She always wanted to be an aerobics instructor. When she told me, I encouraged her to go for it. We spoke recently and she is only a few weeks away from being a certified instructor.

Why do we hold back? Why is it that when we are children, we are fearless? What is it about adulthood that scares us from living out our dreams?

Here are some of my secret wishes:
- I have always wanted to be a good enough singer to sing a solo in church
- I want to have the kind of confidence that would allow me to flirt without feeling stupid and self conscious
- I want to work retail
- I want to go to culinary arts school

What is your secret wish?

My secret wish is to throw caution to the wind and do something totally out of the ordinary: like run an orphanage in China, be a tour guide for some random back pack travel company that goes to the corners of the earth, oh and ask out that one guy in the ward that has caught my eye since day one. Oh wait, I just did that last one :) So I'm one step closer to fulfilling my secret wishes! Fun post by the way!

My secret wishes??? Hmmmm, Be a size 6 or 8(Bold information). Sing in any degree in public and sound great! Start my own, very successful business, Ive got lots of ideas. And to make it on a tv reality show, like, but not limited to: American idol, So you think you can dance, Amazing Race, Survivor, America's Got tallent, Wipeout, Meet the Newly Weds--but I think it's too late for that one.
