The Joy Diet: Desire


Growing up the youngest of three children and a "Pollyanna-ish" mother, I've been blessed with a distinct advantage in the Desire department.  I always expect to get what I want. 

Of course, I don't always get what I want, but somehow, somewhere in my development, I came to believe that if I really, really, really want something it will come to me. 

Now you'd think that this kind of "magic thinking" would have set me up for a lifetime of disappointment.  Au contraire.  I feel that because The Universe only has good intentions for me, if I don't get what I'm after, then something better is planned for me.

As a result, I'm an avid goal-setter, dreamer and wishmaker.

A few years ago, I created a visual metaphor for my life's wishes using a Barbie convertible.   My project then became an instrument to help some very special kids to dream their dreams, too.

Today's Joy Diet Menu Item on Desire, seems an appropriate place to share it again.

What a fabulous project and I'm loving the Barbie car!! Very creative and very visual!!

I love that you were raised in an environment where you can wish to have or to be anything you want. That you know sometimes your desires to come to fruition but you don't stop yourself for trying to make them happen. That's a true gift and your family helped enable that to happen.

Oh I love this... I too am an eternal optimist, beats the other hands down. I have a little book I write things down in when I really want them... and I nag and nag until I get them!! hahahaha.

This is so wonderful that you use such positive energy to lead your way in life. And to share it with the kids is a blessing.

I love this attitude - the happiness comes from the journey rather than actually getting what we want. Of course there are only good intentions for you!

the car is delightful!

Great car!!! Pollyanna Moms are good!Yay!

Angie said...

yes the power of self belief is a positive force, I was an only child and was showered with affection too, always encouraged, few times discouraged. I hope to only pass this on to my own children so they have a chance to also make their dreams come true.

You inherited an awesome outlook from your "Pollyannaish" mom! :) I love the 3Dness of the Barbie vision car :)

Thanks for sharing your week of desire.
