A Dream Is A Wish

"A Dream Is A Wish" - Cinderella

"A dream is a wish your heart makes
When you're fast asleep
In dreams, you will lose your heartaches
Whatever you wish for you keep"...

Last night, the ever so sweet, funny and thoughtful Diana included me in the "Overlord Award"...

I've been granted the pleasure of designing 3 wondrous rules.  Anything I wish. No matter how unreal they seem, trust me...they're coming true!

Let's get started!

1.} Who doesn't wish there were more hours in a day?! There are no longer 24 hrs.  My new rule...there are 48 hours.  You'll still only need the normal 6-8 hrs of sleep and the other 40 hours are for whatever you wish.  The week is now 2 days and the weekend is 5 days! Grab your list of never ending things to get done and start checkin' em off ladies. And you won't age any faster either.  It is now as if the year is 730 days (some of you might not like this rule...especially the ladies who are in the 2ww stage and hoping for some answers - just so you know, I've added a bonus 2nd part of this rule, that the wait won't feel any longer than usual). So start making plans and filling your list with some fun and relaxation!

2.} I've seen variations of this rule a bunch, because come on now, what woman doesn't wish she could eat whatever she wanted, whenever she wanted and not gain a single ounce.  The new rule is to not obsess, worry, count calories, or beat yourself up for what you eat, what you don't eat or how much you do or don't work out.  You won't need to, because there are no calories, fat or nutrition in anything you eat.  It's all "free" food.  You will now get your daily nutrients from a single vitamin that contains every ounce of everything your body needs to be healthy.  So go ahead, grab that tub of ice cream and Hershey's syrup and park it on the couch, ask for an extra side tub of sour cream on those 10 cheese nachos, eat that whole pepperoni pizza and wash it down with an extra large milkshake...and SMILE :) You're now free of all the days of guilt when you get down on yourself for eating this or that. Who wants to go with Taco Bell with me???

3.} My favorite...any woman who has had to deal with the grueling, long and oh so trying journey of trying to conceive with infertility, miscarriage or multiple times, has felt so lost, so scared...sometimes so hopeless.  I'm creating the gift of never ending strength. You will be granted with endless amounts of hope, courage and faith.  Nothing can stand in your will be able to tackle anything that comes your way without ever feeling helpless. When things seem like they will never get better, they will. You'll be given the peace of mind that you WILL, no matter how or when, have a baby.  No more hours of wondering why.  No more sleepless nights.  No more dragging along the dreaded 2 week wait.  The words "what if", "how", "why", "when" never even existed.  They are erased from our vocabulary. I could say, I'd just wave my wand and a perfect little baby would appear in your arms, since this is all for fun...but even if that could happen, I wouldn't want it that way. (Okay, sometimes I totally would) But,  I want to continue this fight.  I don't want to take the easy way out with the wave of wand.  I didn't come all this way to not make it count. I want to believe that we're getting even closer to the family we dream of.

And I do.

(this little fluffy looks so much like Muffin!)

Your rainbow will come smiling through"

Have fun girls and feel free to pass the award on to other ladies if you wish! :)

I love these rules!! Number 3 is my favorite. Strength, hope, courage, faith... You're right. It would be easy to just wave a wand and make it all better, but this experience--with all its ups and downs--is so worth the fight. Huge hugs!!! Have a wonderful weekend =) xoxox

Melissa said...

I would totally go to Taco Bell with you! Yumm! Now I think I might have to go for lunch...

Thanks for choosing me! I'm really excited to do my post :-)
