I asked you last week to send me your big dreams (and little dreams) and I have some to share.
But it's always awkward to be the one to go first, so I'll start.
And I have a great day job. I truly am blessed. But a teeny part of me, maybe a bigger part of me, longs for a day when I can pursue this blog and my sewing full time (once upon a time I almost went to school for fashion design.) But what I would also really love is to write and publish a book. Truthfully this is something I've wanted to do since elementary school.
And right now, even though I have a different job, something I spend a lot of time at, I believe I'm slowly working toward my dreams.
here are some other beautiful dreams shared:
"My Dream: I currently work as an interior designer but I love love baking. I dig into it the second I get home and think about it my whole lunch hour, I really want to find a way to make this a bigger part of my life: for now I keep thinking about at farmer's markets."
"I have a dream of editing novels for a living and someday opening my very own little book shop. How I'm going to achieve either of these, I have no clue--and I suppose knowing where to begin is what is holding me back. But, I keep those ever in my vision--always in the front of my brain with the hopes that *someday* I will get to see them come true."
"My dream is to be a published author. I guess the biggest thing holding me back is myself. I love to write and have so many ideas but I never feel like my writing is good enough. "
"I have two dreams: 1) to dance ballet and teach. I was a dancer my entire life but quit 5 years ago, I just started again because I missed it so much. 2) I lost my job 3 weeks ago, simply because my boss didn't like me, now I am discouraged and I wish I could blog and start an etsy shop for my work but fear is holding me back from both things. I don't know where to start and I feel stuck."
kudos to these ladies for being so bold to share with us their dreams. I feel like in sharing stuff like this, it puts us on the path to making it real.
and speaking of dreams, here are some other crazy-inspiring posts about dreams:
and please, encourage the people who shared, and maybe share your own dreams, too.
p.s. another one of my dreams: for this blog to be a place to chase dreams and help you feel encouraged! :)
