Who are your dream stealers?

“Someone may have stolen your dream when it was young and fresh and you were innocent. Anger is natural. Grief is appropriate. Healing is mandatory. Restoration is possible”-Jane Rubietta

This speaks volumes to me.  Someone may have stolen your dream when it was young and fresh…  Yes!  I have had my dreams stolen from me MANY TIMES…  and more-so, then not, I hae stolen my own dream(s).  I know what I want this blog to say.  But, I am having a very hard time putting my thoughts onto this page. 

(taps fingers on keyboard)
Ahh… A story if you will…

For as long as I can remember I wanted a wedding.  I never wanted to be married (actually I never wanted a husband).  I just wanted a wedding.  I had it all planned out!  It was going to be flamboyant and beautiful. 
Been married THREE TIMES and not once have I been walked down this isle.  (Heartbreaking) 

I consider this my forever marriage( and DEAR GOD I HOPE SO!!!) 
I want a wedding…  I don’t care if I am already married, I don’t care if people think it’s silly… It’s not silly to me.  I don’t care if “people” think it shouldn’t be called a wedding call it whatever you want…  WHO CARES!  I want a champagne white dress with the flowers and the caters and the vows and the bridesmaids I want it all… 
Between us and the rest of the bloggoshere I kinda want the invites to say
” Check your opinons at the Gate
   KEEP YOUR BAD ATTITUDE and NASTY COMMENTS to yourself
   It’s a celebration of love and life
   SO, BE NICE CAUSE YOU GET TO EAT AND DRINK FOR FREE…” 

IT’s rude I know!  I would never…  But GRRR some people just need to keep their opions to themselves…  First of all
1.  They are not paying for it
2.  I never asked for them to say anything

Dream stealers…  They come in all shapes and forms.  You can do one of two things…  Shrug it off…  Cause the ADULT Dolores should have done that.  Or you can let it stew like the 12 year old Dolores did.  I can honestly say that I have gotten no satisfaction from stewing over it.  This person will never know how much they hurt my feelings.  And would they care?  Nor really…  But, you have to remember what is important to you maybe trival to somebody else.  Doesn’t make it right.  Doesn’t make it wrong.  It’s just life. 

In the end.  I am going to get my wedding.  It may not have been what I envisioned as a little girl but, it’s going to make me happy, and that is what is important. 
Don’t let anybody “steal” your dreams…  Go after them! Make them happen…  Don’t live with regret…  Just do it!! 
Squash that inner blah-ness..  it doesn’t do anything but, keep you down… 

Someone may have stolen your dream when it was young and fresh and you were innocent. Anger is natural. Grief is appropriate. Healing is mandatory. Restoration is possible“-Jane Rubietta

Right there RESTORATION IS POSSIBLE…  Dream your Dream…  Be happy…  Life your life….

    Dream Stealer’s, never thought of it that way. But I know who you’re talking about (the TYPE of people) and I like the wedding invites. I’d do it 😉

    Hey gal. I tried to find your email but couldn’t. I was wondering if you could email me when you get this. I was getting ready to head into town to watch “Twilight” and I was wondering if you’d like to meet up. I know this is VERY short notice, but I’d love to have your company. We can drool over Edward Cullen together. 🙂
