I have a few personal blog dreams that I spend my time daydreaming about in my spare time. You know, the kind of dreams that make you 'Sigh!' when you finish thinking about them. The kind of dreams where you have to pull yourself together to refocus afterwards and give yourself a pep talk because even though you are trying to dream big, you secretly think they are really never going to happen!
Please tell me I am not the only one who does this? Haha!
Well, I recently had a massive surprise when I received an email inviting me to actually do one of my personal blog dreams. You see, I have been a huge fan of a website called Time Out for Women. I have been reading the wonderful uplifting posts that they share for years and they are very selective about who is able to write for the site. They have a wonderful worldwide audience and a great following.
Just this week they launched a new site and introduced a new section: Featured Blogs.
I am so excited, totally blown away and honoured that they asked me to be the first guest blogger for the new Featured Blogs section. I have to say I just about fainted when I got the email about it. Of all the millions of blogs in the world they wanted little me and my Seven Cherubs blog to be featured.
I have spent so many days reading great inspiring stories written by women on this site and often dreamed of being able to have something written and published with them. I have had many 'Sigh!' moments over this big dream of mine and today I have to say I am a little teary that it has actually happened.
My blog post that I have shared is about my 30 Days of Happiness plan as I really want to help as many women find happiness as I can. I am hoping that readers of the Time out for Women site will download my free printable plan and start writing about happiness and start feeling a little happier.
The theme of Time out for Women is 'Choose To Become' and I am so excited to be part of the theme and message. You can check out my blog post HERE.
Of course the timing of being published on the Time out for Women site is just perfect for me as this weekend I am going to the Time out for Women event here in Australia as they are coming here for the first time.

I would so love it if you have the time to leave a comment on my blog post and to also hit the "Facebook Like' button to help spread the happiness word and to help as many women start focusing on happiness as we can.
Thank you so much for your support on my blog journey thus far. I know I would never have been able to achieve this blog dream of mine if it was not for all of your wonderful encouragement, comments and love.
This is a big deal for me and I am a little nervous about what other women will think of my post and plan. I do feel confident though as your wonderful feedback has helped me to see that it really is worthwhile and helpful and I so appreciate you helping me achieve one of my blog dreams. I am going to have to set some bigger dreams now and to spend a lot more of my time letting out a big 'Sigh!'.
Have a great day everyone...my day today...is super awesome!
