The Beauty of Our Dreams

My coach recently suggested that I consider spending more time dreaming. My mind (like many of yours, I’m guessing!) is very good at planning, at problem solving, and at worrying – but I spend far less time intentionally dreaming.

The practice of dreaming has been a lovely addition to my life. It has helped me to clarify my goals, led to important conversations with my family, and allowed me to better appreciate the blessings that are already present in my life.

I’m sharing some of my dreams with you, today.

Because writing dreams down and putting them out into the world is the first step to making them real.

And, because I hope that hearing my dreams will prompt you to consider yours.
