Dreaming Big

Do you believe in dreams?  Yes!

How often do you find yourself saying, "If only..." or "I wish...?"  Having a dream and following a dream are so narrowly separated.  Mostly by action.

Darcy Horn has a dream.  Check out her dream of creating a Beaded Body. There's only a few more days to help her reach her goal.   What I admire the most?  Darcy asked for help in achieving her dream.  Actually stated what her dream was, set the timeline, did the homework for what she needed to reach her goal, and then, asked for help, which greatly increases the likelihood that her dream will come true.

It's that time of year when I focus on what I want to draw to me in the upcoming year.  There's lots!  I've set aside December 21st - Yule - to make a dream board.  I'll take pictures and words from magazines and the internet that spark my imagination, that illustrate some of the half formed plans I have, for my career and for my creative life.  (Not that these are exclusive.)  But Darcy's project has also taught me a good lesson - that dreams aren't isolated.  Dreams are enhanced by being shared.

  1. I seriously hope this project gets funded! It's one of the coolest things I've seen.

    Thanks for helping to spread the word about Darcy's project! And you're so right -- dreams are much more likely to come true if we reach out to other people.
