When I dug into Tell Your Time by Amy Lynn Andrews at the beginning of the year, I began to think about being a dreamer. Andrews encourages people to think out their roles. And to all the ones that immediately spring to mind, she encourages the addition of one more: dreamer.
And I began to think: what are my dreams? Many have come true:
- be a mommy
- homeschool my kids
- write a novel
That’s a pretty satisfying list right there. But I haven’t stopped dreaming.
The “experts” will tell you that a big part of making dreams come true is vision. You’ll never reach a goal if your sights aren’t set on it. I used to have a bulletin board where I’d post pictures of the things I dreamed about: a vision board. Some keep clippings in a folder or scrapbook. But since we’ve become a little nomadic, I haven’t had a place to put these things.
On a sudden burst of inspiration, I put together my own vision board.
Pinterest is also a great place to collect homeschool information. See my friend Sam’s great post on that subject.
