Dream Big Dreams

I'll admit I'm a daydreamer.  I dream about the Caribbean Sea, those stilted huts in Bora Bora and becoming a successful artist, just to name a few.  I also dream of life being easier financially and health-wise as well. 

I encourage my daughter to dream big dreams and tell her that she can do anything she dreams or wishes.  Hopefully this message will stick with her as she gets older and possibly less confident as she enters her teen years. 

I found this inspiring quote by Gail Devers and think it's perfect for my new butterfly painting and for my daughter who will be ten-years-old next Tuesday.

"Keep your dreams alive. Understand to achieve anything requires faith and belief in yourself, vision, hard work, determination, and dedication. Remember all things are possible for those who believe.”

I know some people just aren't dreamers.  They are practical and serious, but I can't live that way. 

I have to dream.  I think we all have to dream.


  1. this is beautiful.. love it.. such a beautiful quote! I am a dreamer too... a life without dreams would be just a life. xo Love the new banner! xo

  2. Thanks for everything--you're a peach!

  3. You said a mouthful, girl! My dreams became my most beautiful realisties. I wish everyone taught their children to dream. Your daughter is so lucky to have such a talented, nurturing mommy!

  4. Thanks so much Kathy for your wise AND sweet reply!

  5. Jill - I just read through a few of your last posts and I can see we have so much in common! I was particularly taken with your post about making a career from your creative passions! I too had a mum who said the same thing! But I can see that you are not the type of person to waver in the face of such things! As a matter of fact - they just make us stronger - don't you think? More resigned and determined! I'll definitely be back for more of your positivity and wosdom ;)

  6. Thanks, Donna. It's so nice to hear from someone who can relate! And, yes, I guess those negative comments can make us stronger and want "it" even more.
