Day Dreaming

Dont you somedays just wish you had an endless supply of money or even time for that matter?
I’ve been having a whole week or so of that! Just dreaming of doing something else….
Dont get me wrong, I love my job  (most days), but lately its getting more and more difficult to focus on work etc. Im sooooo not motivated to be here right now. There’s also a few work related issues thats making it very difficult for us to operate on full capacity, so you end up doing what you do half hearted, not to disappointment yourself and/or others.

What If I didnt work because we need the money…
What if I was like those creative types, who starts up a business from home an make millions…
What if I had undiscovered talents to achieve financial freedom…
What if I did something on the side, after hours etc…
What if… What if….

And I have had plenty idees:
* Maybe start a cake/cupcake baking business? Kitchen not big enought, not enough experience, and I not that talented (doing family cakes is one thing, I get carteblanche, other people might have higher expectations….
* Garden Service/Design business- although I would have to go back to ‘school’, I will totally enjoy something like this  – being outdoors, seeing your work progress and grow..
* Party Organising (think Monkey Magic)  they make it seem so easy. But again, dont have the funds to start up something like this, but could be fun – doing kids parties as a job! Another pitfall – demanding Mom’s.!
* Maybe owning a Party/ Outdoorsy Venue/ Coffee Shop and nice kids play area… We dont have loads of that in our area – Im sure if you do it right, it will be a hit… again no experience or money… Nice thing – if someone irritates you – you ask them to leave YOUR premises… LOL Im so full of ideas how to decorate a place like this… it would be such a cosy, let-your-hair-down, kid friendly place! *sigh*

Strange what you think you’ll do one day, when you grow up,
then what you end up doing,
and what you wish you were rather doing…

So if anyone knows the winning lotto numbers – please let me know!!  🙂 🙂 🙂

Talking about parties – here is a link to a website where I found some of the Sophia party goodies. They have loads of other themes too – all for free! This was one of many sites I found…

Happy dreaming to everyone – hope oneday we can let it come true!

  1. Being outdoors in this weather, no thank you. I think most of us just plod along in our jobs, just earning money to get by. Who ever really loves what they do?
    When I was younger I wanted to be a Marine Biologist. I love nature,especially the sea. And look at me now. I get to spend hundreds, sometimes thousands of rands everyday. On engine parts, whoop whoop

    • Also true hey – especially now with all the cold fronts! 🙂 Each job has its pro’s and cons…
      Stuck in a rut, just need to find my mojo!
      I wanted to be a archaeologist , my biology markes sucked and I ended doing a Tourism Diploma and then ‘landed’ in Aviation.
      I’ve been doing this for the last 11yrs, its the only thing I know how to do!
      It always nice spending other peoples money… 🙂
      But it sure would be nice, if we didnt have to work like we needed the money! 😉
      Hugs to you too!

      • 11 Years only ! I’ve been at this company since I was 19 and I’m now 37. Started in reception and now I’m buyer, with a bit of accounts on the side. I’ve got no where else to go but I’ve got a great boss who understands that a mum needs time off every now and then

  2. Dreaming is great. I do it too and I like to believe if you dream hard enough, you can make it come true.
    I knew exactly what I wanted to do when I was ten years old…and here I am. I always know how lucky I am to actually do what I dreamed about at 10…so from someone with dreaming experience, do not give up on your dreams. We are not too old or dead yet!

    • You are very lucky! Im just starting to think, I dont know if I can do what Im doing now till the end of days! Maybe I can follow the dream later in life, for now its better to have the financial stability! One day though, one day!

  3. I also do this! Imagine what things would have been like if I had known when I was 18 what I really wanted to do … instead of just going into something blindly, not even knowing what I would end up doing at the end of it. Imagine … I started studying without even knowing what someone with my qualification really does!! It amazes me now when I think about it.

    My mum and FIL play the lotto … deal is that if they win they have to pay off our house … that would make such a difference to our lives …
