IF yOu ARe a DReaMer CoMe In

 

"If you are a dreamer come in
If you are a dreamer a wisher a liar
A hoper a pray-er a magic-bean-buyer
If you’re a pretender com sit by my fire
For we have some flax golden tales to spin
Come in!
Come in!"
Shel Silverstein

Welcome my friend. I hope this Thursday finds you full of dreams. I know I a bursting with dreams.

Dreams of places to see:

I cut this out of a magazine  and have keep it so long that the paper is tattered……but I love this:

LIFE LIST

Write it down.

Make it happen.

Live your dream.

I am going to add that tattered piece of paper to first page of a journal I have been working on….second page will be my list…..maybe even the third page. Today I challenge you to do the same. Write the dreams down that you hold dear in your heart. Write down what it takes to make them come true…then tomorrow  DO ONE THING….One step in making that dream come true and cross it off……

Here are some wonderful Etsy journals…

buy one, make one….use a theme book from Walmart they are such a great place to keep those dreams and our path to those dreams….you don’t have to journal about the day….but journal about the road to those dreams and the steps you are taking to get there. I am also going to fill mine with my favorite quotes.

Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.- Harriet Tubman

 

Dare to Dream…..Dare to make them come true…….
