It is often said we make our own luck.
This thread is dedicated to your Hopes and Dreams.

Ok, my bad I think I misrepresented my idea.
If you could control over your life, what would it look like?October 13, 2010 8:32 pm at 8:32 pm #720041
ok wolf, you know very well that violates every wishing rule on the books
Very well. If I have three wishes then, my first wish is for a redefinition of the word “three.”
The WolfOctober 13, 2010 8:40 pm at 8:40 pm #720042
i think you found a loophole wolfOctober 13, 2010 8:42 pm at 8:42 pm #720043
What’s your hope and dream?October 13, 2010 8:45 pm at 8:45 pm #720044
I would like a world where there are no temptations and doubts, a world where everyone wants to serve hashem with their whole heart and soul, with all their senses
P.S. I’m trying to sound poetic, how do I sound?October 13, 2010 8:46 pm at 8:46 pm #720045
Why do I have to be the first to share?October 13, 2010 8:53 pm at 8:53 pm #720046
Chooson, Its quite pathetic,
you are trying to be poetic,
when there is no rhyme scheme,
but im sympathetic,
so ill just say its a great dream!October 13, 2010 8:53 pm at 8:53 pm #720047
I would like a world where there are no temptations and doubts, a world where everyone wants to serve Hashem with their whole heart and soul, with all their senses
i understand what you are saying and in truth i agree with your sentiment
however it is WITH those very temptations and doubts that we serve Hashem
if there were no temptation or doubt our service would be no better than the Melachim
Hashem wants the service of his children, into whom he breathed BechiraOctober 13, 2010 8:56 pm at 8:56 pm #720048
I’m not complaining, just wishingOctober 13, 2010 8:58 pm at 8:58 pm #720049
I would like a world where there are no temptations
Without the temptation, wither the reward?

I just heard about a famous rosh yeshiva who overheard a bochur saying, I think Hashem’s bad. The rosh said, I haven’t met a maamin like him in years. At least he believes that there’s a G-d.October 13, 2010 9:00 pm at 9:00 pm #720051
Why do I have to be the first to share?
Because you’re the one who brought up the subject.
The WolfOctober 13, 2010 9:01 pm at 9:01 pm #720052
Chosson, that truly was inspired.
However, being that your SN is Chosson I’d guess you are a Chosson or recently married. What I had in mind is that you’d share the Hopes & Dreams you have in your PERSONAL life, regarding kids, parnasa, where you want to live….
This is where you get to craft your fairy tale life.
I’ll be the guinea pig.
I want to get married. I want to be one of those ladies where people say “Huh? didnt she just have a baby like 10 months ago?!” every 10 months. I want to be a Foster Home. I want to live in LA. I want to be a Family Court Judge.October 13, 2010 9:03 pm at 9:03 pm #720053
That’s pretty funny!October 13, 2010 9:05 pm at 9:05 pm #720054
Is this what you were referring to when you wrote:
“Give me a sec, I’ll think of some other fatal flaw I should over-come, then I’ll tell some overly personal details of my life, and we can all discuss it.”
I really didn’t mean it that way!!October 13, 2010 9:08 pm at 9:08 pm #720055
Wow, so you want to have like a million kids? I hope you mention that on dates. Lol.
My hope and dream is that I will someday soon figure out my unique purpose in this world and live up to that potential.
I need a wife too.October 13, 2010 9:10 pm at 9:10 pm #720056
on second thought wolf
your loophole needs some refinement
if you redefined the number three all civilization would probably come to an end
maybe the whole universe would cease to exist
would would become of all the physics constants, pi?
i guess your wish would be to redefine 3 as regards wishes only. although that degree of specificity may also break wishing regulationsOctober 13, 2010 9:13 pm at 9:13 pm #720057
The English word “three” and the mathematical concept of three are not necessarily tied together. You’ll note that “billion” has a different meaning in the US and in the UK.
The WolfOctober 13, 2010 9:15 pm at 9:15 pm #720058
a baby every 10 months????? Let us know how that works out! 😉
Now seriously, i spent alot of time hoping and dreaming before I met my husband and now Ive learned that i have to stop dreaming if I really want to live. (I still have hopes, who doesnt?)October 13, 2010 9:15 pm at 9:15 pm #720059ramateshkolianMember
I wish for more money so I can see my mommy and daddy more than once a year. Why does money mean seeing your family more? NOT FAIR!October 13, 2010 9:17 pm at 9:17 pm #720060

mod, you got your wish!October 13, 2010 9:26 pm at 9:26 pm #720061
There are cheaper ways to travel. One can fly during off peak times and do stop overs. It can be half the regular price, also use credit cards that give travel points. I know people who fly for free all the time.October 13, 2010 9:29 pm at 9:29 pm #720062MoqMember
I wish to understand.October 13, 2010 9:37 pm at 9:37 pm #720063
WIY, my husband always says that the cheapest part of traveling is the plane tickets!October 13, 2010 9:38 pm at 9:38 pm #720064
There are answers out there for most things. Some things aren’t meant for us mortals to understand. Sometimes, the deepest understanding is knowing that you can never understand.October 13, 2010 10:45 pm at 10:45 pm #720065I can only tryMember
This thread is quite similar:October 13, 2010 10:46 pm at 10:46 pm #720066
Chosson – I skipped the fatal flaw and went straight to overly personal 😉
“Wow, so you want to have like a million kids? I hope you mention that on dates.”
Million sounds good 😉
Actually, I’ve learned to share less… my big mouth sometimes scares people 😀
“a baby every 10 months????? Let us know how that works out! ;)”
I hope to someday, soon! till then, I can just pretend I will manage 😉October 13, 2010 10:54 pm at 10:54 pm #720067OfcourseMember
I wish for the end of all crises afflicting humanity.October 13, 2010 11:56 pm at 11:56 pm #720068frumladygitMember
I sometimes feel that I understand the words of that song “I dreamed a dream” Sung by Susan Boyle. Like a lot of dreams and opportunities have passed me by.
But I wish I could be happier, and make my kids/family happier. I wish I could let go of the past, and heal the sad child within me suffering from the pain of my parents bitter divorce as a child.
I wish I could be closer to Hashem.
I wish I had more strength to do the things I really want to do in life, and not worry what the neighbors will think or say. I wish I had the guts to wear what I like and not worry if they talk on me. I wish I had the chutzpah to ride a bike in my neighborhood. I wish I had the freedom I had when I was a teenager. I wish I didn’t care what people think of me. I wish I didn’t envy them. I wish people could see how interesting and special I am inside and not judge me from what they have guessed or heard.I wish they would talk to me. I wish I could spend the night in a forest way near the North West Territories, and see the Northern Lights, and hug trees. I wish I could travel through ancient waterways by canoe on an adventure. I wish I could go dirt-bike riding, flying over mounds of sand and dirt in country fields. I wish I could laugh with friends. I wish I didn’t mourn so much over the past, and re-account whats lost and remember whats gone.
Its not easy being a BT.October 14, 2010 1:34 am at 1:34 am #720069

Please bottle, jar, can, and preserve in any other way as much sanity as possible right now. You’ll be needing it, should all your dreams come true.
And they should.October 14, 2010 3:15 am at 3:15 am #720071cofeefanMember

Sacrilege- I based my premise on your other posts, not this one:)
Honestly, I had all the aspirations that you listed, except that Hashem (bless Him!) vetoed the “every ten months” and it’s more like every two years, my husband vetoed the foster home part (bless him, too!), and in his mind, the “a” in LA shouldn’t be capitalized… and judging from the looks of this family court, I’d better go fetch my gavel now…December 21, 2010 11:55 am at 11:55 am #720076
I hope each of my children becomes an ehrliche,happy,and productive adult.If they help klal yisroel at large,I will consider myself doubly blessed.I dream that one day I will be an improved-upon model for my children to emulate(work in progess).May Hashem bentch me and all parents and children with the physical gezunt to truly enjoy all the nachas,amu”sh.December 21, 2010 12:03 pm at 12:03 pm #720077
I hope that Aries re-surfaces. Aries? Aries….?December 21, 2010 2:09 pm at 2:09 pm #720078Aishes ChayilParticipant
I dream for an abundance of Mazel for all of us!!
They say that TOO MUCH of anything is no good. With the exception of Mazel…too much Mazel should be great!!December 22, 2010 3:06 am at 3:06 am #720079
Good mazel!December 23, 2010 2:20 am at 2:20 am #720080toomuch00Member
I wish that my parents would be more understanding and stop tearing each others heads off every chance they get.
I wish to really know if Hashem is truly up there taking care of me.
I hope that im normal. Because frankly, i really dont know if i am! like how does anyone know??December 23, 2010 11:36 am at 11:36 am #720081
It’s because your parents are so stressed out from each other,that you feel they don’t understand you.It’s just hard for them to focus while furious.
Normal is waking up each morning and doing THE BEST YOU POSSIBLY CAN until you go to sleep at night.If anyone in your life is indicating that you are “not normal”,ask them to define exactly what they mean.
And if it’s really driving you crazy wondering if you are normal,discuss it with either a close friend who isn’t a blabbermouth,or an older person you trust.
And Hashem is there taking care of you every second–just sometimes He “hides His face” from us,for certain amounts of time.It’s like the sun,there alll the time,we just don’t always SEE it.Talk to Hashem–even in plain English–and ask Him to help you feel His caring.
