I wrote a blog post about Dream Jars in April of 2012. The intention was to get all of my hopes and dreams on paper, look at them once a month, and eventually make a collage of them, a collage of dreams come true. Honestly, I haven’t checked back on them in over a year, part of me forgot all about it but the part that remembered was afraid that I hadn’t accomplished any of them. Out of sheer curiosity I went through them this week. With an anxious chest and tired eyes I read through all of my dreams and hopes. Some of them I laughed at, some of them I achieved, some I didn’t remember, while others are still works-in-progress. I’d like to share them with you, I think it might do me well to have them written and out there on my blog instead of hiding them away in a jar. Here they are, my dreams in progress…

Dreams are beautiful and fulfilling them only inspires even bigger dreams.
Working towards something is my favourite part of living – that, and love.
Dream it, live it, love it.
