I love that quote too, although it's the first time I've seen it (is it from a television commercial? we don't have a t.v. in our house). Thanks for your inspiration, Jeanne. p.s. I have a piece of art by my computer at home that reminds me to "dream" everyday :)

I love this idea, am printing off the quote and was just talking about all of this to a good friend of mine on Monday. Serendipitous! I am still chasing my dreams and will be starting my journal today! I too believe that writing and saying it outloud will help, heck it's really the only way I can remember anything these days!! Thank you for the inspiration, Theresa


What a fabulous post! Thank you so much for your wise words - it all makes so much sense. I am starting my journal today.

Here's to living our dreams,

Such an inspiring post! Thank you so much!! I started on that journey a year ago and am now mostly living my dreams! It's an amazing life... Hugs, Silke


that is the perfect quote jeanne. what and awesome post. i need to read it again and again. such inspiration!!

Julie Ann

What a wonderful post!! I think life gets us so busy, we forget to stop and think about our dreams! What a wonderful way to give us inspiration and hope (and motivation!!)!


This is a perfect post, for me today. I love writing things down, but then I find myself hiding the journal, so no one will read it. I must get past this point. It must have something to do with being laughed at or something. I was not able to pursue any of my past dreams, due to illness in my teens. This probably has alot to do with the being afraid of not fulfulling a dream and being laughed at???? Wow I think I just had an AH HA moment.

I am really trying not to pass this onto my son, who is a HS senior. I don't want to talk him out of anything (that is truely his dream), but I also want him to make responsible choices. How to you guide them without being a dream smasher???

Thanks again for the thought provoking post:)

Love this Jeanne. I know what my dreams are. It's just making them happen:)

Jeanne, I so believe God has a plan and my dreams are beginning to come to life. This post is beautiful. It is hard for me to say that now is the time for me to live....I am 33 and just beginning to live life to the fullest. I had a lot to overcome but now is the time. I am so happy to have met you. Hugs, AMy

A pocket full of posies...

I LOVE this!!!! can't wait for this whole "series"!
Thank you for sharing!
Many Blessings!


Thanks so much for this post. I might not yet have the marriage or family that I still dream and pray about having, but there are many other dreams I have forgotten about. The encouragement is great and needed. It reminds me that it's okay for me to put myself first once in awhile to try to achieve these dreams.
Especially when it comes to fulfilling who I am as God's daughter. By seeking Him out and following His word, it is possible that my dreams and desires will change. But in the end, God's plan and desires for me will be much better than what I ever imagined possible.
I look forward to what you have for us next week.


I already started doing that this year. (in the journal you gave me) I think it really helps to stay focused and also to watch your progress. LOVE the nike quote I will be printing that!


So glad you are doing this and I'm getting out my journal and starting today :)

Becky G.

Jeanne, I hope it is okay (I know I should have asked first - duh!) but I've put the pic with the quote and bird in the frame on the sidebar of both my blogs with a link to your blog. Let me know if it's not and I'll remove them.

And I think maybe this is what I need right now. I'm going to find a book I can use as my journal! Thanks, Becky


Thanks! I have my journal prepped and ready and thanks too for that fabulous image...can't wait to make a banner with it!


Love the quote...I had never heard it before. Lovely, inspirational post. I am living part of my dream and know the rest is there somewhere (I'm not entirely sure of what my exact dream is, but I know it will all unfold if I have faith in it)...it's making the time and getting rid of the excuses and distractions. I've been journaling and it really is so helpful to put thoughts on paper, but I think art journaling would be even better...

Suz Reaney

...and you are dear to my heart! This is so special! I will come back and read it again, and DO IT!!! Get out that journal!

You are a sweetheart, Jeanne!


Jeanne, giving me homework, what has the world come to? :) I love this post because as women who have families and obligations we sometimes put our dreams on the back burner, or feel we need to put our children or our husbands 1st before our dreams, but you are right there needs to be a happy balance between the two...and that is what I have been working on...thanks for always being an inspiration!

Leah C

So inspiring! Where would we be without dreams? Thank you for encouraging us to "spread our wings":) P.S. Is it ok if I borrow that quote/image for my journal?

emily ruth

that is such a great quote!..i'm excited about this series you're starting...very cool! thanks :)


love those birds, jeanne (especially "fly")!=) nursing ad right now, but want to get to that homework and see what comes out. love you.


You've just pulled a lurker out of the closet here... I love your blog and read it often. It is the first on my list to check. This post is amazing and just what I need right now. This fits in with my word of the year (from ali edwards) and my goal in 2010 to focus more on my creativity and my desires in that area. Thank you Thank you Thank you. From another CO gal.


LOVE it! Sweetly inspiring. I'm printing out that quote and putting it somewhere where I'll see it often. I think I might even be inspired enough to start that journal! Thank you!
