Dreams and Inspiration

It seems funny when I think about my dreams.

As a child, I would dream of having four children.

I would dream of being happily married.

I would dream of helping people.

And all of those things with prayer and work came true.

But I forgot about something…

What about after that?

I had dreams, but they seem long since faded and replaced with work and driving and cleaning and cooking and, and, and…

inspirational quote

I can’t dream for my children now… but instead help them to cultivate their own.

I can’t dream for  my husband now… but instead help him to reach his own.

No one seemed to tell me that I had to come up with NEW dreams for myself or rekindle the dreams I once had and see them to fruition.

So that is the other part of what I have been doing over the past few months.  I have been working on dreaming for myself.

Now, I know some of you will get your knickers in a twist with that statement, thinking that I am putting myself before my family, but you know what?  I am.  If I don’t take care of myself, how am I supposed to take care of them?

So I have to ask… do you have dreams for yourself?  I would love if you would share them and give them the full weight in words that they deserve in the comments :).

Thanks for stopping by and reading!!!

  1. Always put your oxygen mask on first, then help those around you. On the other hand, my dreams are crazy. I recently dreamed I was singing ‘It’s Raining Men’ with Aretha Franklin. We were both wearing purple satin gowns. Hmmmm
