I love to dream big, to set impossible goals and to then work hard to achieve them. I feel incredibly blessed in my life as I have already achieved most of my personal dreams and goals I set for myself. Not too many people can say they are living the dream life they have always wanted but that is how I feel about my life. I am a stay at home mum, who gets to write and to talk about motherhood as much as I want here on my blog. Living the dream here.
I am easily pleased, what can I say!
As most of you know I adore my books and I recently started reading 'Dare, Dream, Do' by Whitney Johnson. According to Whitney, remarkable things happen when you dare to dream. I don't know if I consider my life to be remarkable by any means but I love the lessons I have learned along the way and the crazy person I have become in the process.
I started reading Whitney's book and immediately decided to take a blog break to study it, to devour it and dream a little bigger. I read story after story included in the book of what dreams and goals other women have achieved and pondered deeply over why as women we give up on our dreams and don't even dare to dream at all.
I spent time thinking of new blog goals and projects, I thought of starting a business, I thought of writing books, I thought constantly of starting a project outside of my home and of entering the work force. I let my mind wander over ideas and possibilities that would take me out of my home and away from away my family. As I pondered and wondered and dreamed and tried to dream bigger dreams I ended up having a surprising outcome.
It became clear to me that I am already living my dream, right now, this moment, this day and this year and that I am happy doing so. I have no more real blog goals and dreams, I simply love to write and share and I am happy with small opportunities that come my way. I have learned business skills and I use them in my home and on my blog already. I have a blog where if I want to write a book, I can and I can do it in my own time, my own way and simply sell it as an ebook. I can give it away if I want, I can be in control and I can do it according to how I want.
Basically, I love that I can spend my day how I want, I can develop skills and talents according to my own schedule and can help and serve and fit my desires around my family.
Sure there are parts of my dream life I am living that are not so nice such as all the housework and arguing that can often happen in our home, but being a mother is my dream. It is my chosen career and it is my dream life. I am so, so grateful that I am one and that I can be at home with my cherubs.
I love that each day I can try to be a little better as a mother and that I can keep my mind active with writing. I can build stronger relationships with my cherubs and connect with other women and love my family a little more each day.
I loved reading Whitney's book and for the reminder that I am already living my dream life. I am looking forward to what new opportunities may come my way and to writing more about motherhood in the future.
