Dreams. I have always been a dreamer. The cool thing is that so many of my dreams have become a reality. I don't know if it's because of my positive attitude or my stubborn will.

But one thing I have learned in my life is that dreams are very important. Everyone has dreams. And if you take the dream out of the person - the person withers away. You lose a sense of yourself - your soul so to speak.

It is so easy when we are concentrated on being a good mom and wife, to forget that we are also individuals. Individual women who have dreams. It doesn't matter what your age is or where you are in your life. I think that anything is possible. If you are 23 or 62, it is still possible to make your dreams come true.

What is your dream? Is it a dream home with acreage and horses? Is it to be a writer? How about to paint or travel? Whatever your dream is, I encourage you to pursue it with passion! Now, granted, being a full-time mom can take a lot of possibilities and put them on the "hold" table. But there are still ways for you to pursue your dreams even with young children in the house. If you want to be a writer, you can write articles, poetry, etc. and submit them during nap times or when the kids have gone to bed. Work up to your novel or full-time status. If you want to paint, encourage your children to sketch and paint alongside of you. Take a night class once a week. The house? Well, drive around on weekends and scout out the areas you like. Start a special savings account that the whole family contributes to. There are so many ways to make you feel like you are making progress and working your way to that special dream.

Dreams are important. They are vital. Dreams add joy to life. So, don't lose yours okay?
