Follow Your Dreams

Hi, it's me again, aka Ocean Dreams! By now my lovely friend Selma is either packing to head home or will be on her way shortly! Let's wish her happy travels and I'm sure she's enjoying every moment possible that she has left on her trip in Istanbul!
Selma and I like to talk about our dreams for the future, and believe me, they never end. We both want a job that we love, a place to call home, and a future that we adore. I know that Selma is on her way to achieving these things, and I am as well. I always tell her to take one step at a time and to never give up! Selma is one of the most kindest, sincerest, and genuine people I know. She has so many gifts and I have no doubt that she will continue to achieve and grow in the coming weeks and months ahead! So since some dreaming is in order, let's look at some dreamy quotes and pictures about our dreams! :)
So do you want to brain storm with me? What are some of your current dreams and how can you go about achieving them? Is it to find a new job? Do you want to make new friends? Do you simply want to make more time to read?

Here are 5 dreams and goals that I have right now:

1. I want to read 24 books this year. I'm a tad behind because I've only ready 6 so far, but I'm hoping that I will be able to catch up! I'm just happy that I've taken more time to read, because before it wasn't that big of a priority to me.
2. I would love to go on a trip with my love, BK, this year. It would be amazing to go to Europe, but I'd just be happy with a fun weekend trip as well. I'm hoping and dreaming for my magical trip!
3. I want to exercise 4-5 times a week and focus on eating more healthy foods. This really isn't a dream per say, but it's something that I certainly can focus on improving.
4. I dream of moving back to California! Hopefully this dream will be become a reality rather soon!
5. Continuing to succeed and grow in my freelance jobs is also an important dream and goal of mine.

Some things to ponder:

Are you frightened to have a dream simply because you think it might not come true? I'm here to tell you that your dreams can come true and don't be afraid to dream. It doesn't matter where you are at or where you have come from. It doesn't matter what you've been through either. There is always a new opportunity for a new beginning, a new start, and a new dream.

Start small. Don't push yourself to a place where you feel like quitting. Take a few baby steps every single day. Pretty soon you'll realize you've almost made a dream come true! If you are waiting for Mr. Right or are simply needing a change, don't fret. Everything will turn out alright. Just take one day at a time, know that you are loved, and that you are allowed to dream. In fact, never stop dreaming because I guarantee that many, if not all of your dreams, will come true. Just trust in yourself and your heart - you deserve all of the love the world has to give.

Thanks so much for reading! I hope you all are having a lovely day and I'm happy to hear that our sweet Selma had a wonderful birthday. Never forget to dream, wish, and have faith and thanks for listening to this little dreamer in me. ;) Thanks to Selma for letting me do a little bit of dreaming on her blog.

I'm totally a dreamer, and sometimes it's really hard to make them come to life, but thankfully one of mine is next month!
