Building a dream...

How many times have you heard people say, “Someday I would like to ____________” or “I wish I could ____________”, and even “I have always dreamed of _____________”.  I hear it all the time and perhaps I am more in tune to hearing it because I have always been one of “those people”.

I watch a lot of movies with my kids and they all carry a message of go after your dreams, don’t let anyone say you can’t do something, and dreams really do come true. Why is it this message gets lost when you become an adult? Recently I asked a friend where they saw themselves in the next 2 to 3 years and the answer was “ I really don’t know”. It got me thinking, can I answer that question? I have said before how it is easy to get into a routine and the “I will get to it someday” ideas fall to the wayside. I don’t want my someday to be when my kids are grown and I finally feel like I have time for myself.

So my someday starts today…. well, actually about 2 weeks ago. I have always had an entrepreneurial spirit, but the spirit has never led me down a defined path. I have always wanted to have a voice but didn’t feel anything I had to say was important enough. Now that I am reflecting on my own wants and dreams, I come back to these same two things over and over again. That would be why this blog was born, because even though what I have to say might not be important to everyone, it could make an impact on someone. I also am working on some toys and accessories for children because I like to make things and my kids are great guinea pigs. Is this the start of my dream? I think it is, and if baby steps it what it takes to get there then I am definitely on my way.
