Aloha Friday #5

My friend Kailani is hosting another episode of Aloha Friday! Her idea is that you post a question on your blog each Friday. Each person is encouraged to join in the fun by posting your own question on your blog. Be sure to visit the Aloha Friday Headquarters and answer Kailani's question and sign up on her Linky.

My question for this week is very much related to what is happening in my world:

Have you ever had a dream that seemed unobtainable, but you accomplished this dream anyway? If so, what was that dream and what did you overcome to accomplish it?


Melli said...

WOW! That's a heck of a question for Aloha Friday!

I was a single mom at 18 and just surviving and providing seemed to be unobtainable at times. I think the basic goal was probably to get my daughter raised to be a healthy and open minded person, self sufficient person -- and the first thing I had to overcome to DO that was to take a STRONG stand against all the people who wanted me to abort her! Thank God I did - she is now 31 and EVERYTHING I hoped she would be!

I once had a dream of marrying my husband which I thought was totally "a dream". My dream came true by just being me.

Marie said...

Nope, its always been the other way around for me. Maybe I dream too big.

Maggie said...

Honestly, I know it might sound corny but I have to say my biggest dream was about Paul and I've accomplished it.

What about you ??

I'm having a hard time with this one, but I guess just getting married and having a family seemed unattainable to me when I was younger and here I am with a husband and three wonderful kids... :)

I think it's great that you're trying new things! You never know until you give it a shot! I'm sure you'll do great!

As for me, I at one point the unattainable was getting married and having a family. Boy, did that sure change!

Audra said...

Wow - thought-provoking question.

When I was in my first marriage to an abusive man, I thought having a wonderful marriage and being happy was unattainable.
I made it out of there alive with my two beautiful daughters. I'm now married to my high school sweetheart and we have six amazing kids.
That life I once had seems like someone else's now. :)

Audra said...

By the way, I love that Aloha Friday button - where did you get it? :)

Rock on! You should definitely start a sewing biz. Those purses you sent me were not only cute but well made.

Yes I have, and I'll try to express it in as few long-winded sentences as possible. I always thought and hoped I'd be married and have a family. The marriage part never worked out, mainly because I have appallingly bad judgment when it comes to men. The more time passed, the more I despaired, until circumstances caused me to turn from the door I'd been staring out of my entire adult life to a window facing a completely different direction, and I realized that I could still have the family. After several years of planning blah blah, and infertility treatments blah blah, I found myself exactly where I needed to be, as the loving parent of two wonderful children.
