I`ve always been a dreamer. When I was a teenager I live in a sparsely populated area in a countryside. All my friends lived at least 10km away. I went to school by buss were i could mostly meet them. If I wouldn`t have my imagination – I would have bored to death 🙂
That being said I really can`t know if loving so much my “alone time” and my tendency to lost time to dreaming is something I`ve learned under pressure forced by my living conditions as a child or is it just always been a deep yearning of my soul.
Maybe it`s both of them with the fact that as a highly sensitive person my quiet time is always well needed.
I wrote 6 journals from age 13 to 16 and I saved only one.
I burn all the others our home fireplace.
I have always found it easy to get rid of things I don`t need anymore but, this is something I have regret.
Having times of depression and going through my challenging childhood and my youth as an adult, I have often wondered how much it would have been helpful to read my journals and explore my experiences, thoughts, and feelings I had back then since I knew I write a lot about them.
My parents had divorced and my father became an alcoholic and I had to move to a small town and leave my friends and my big sister at the age of 12…there was a lot of things to go through and forgive.
But it`s never been “only dreaming”. It`s really about believing in magic and the truth that life is full of possibilities and no matter how crazy your dream is – it can come true. We all are able to make magic happen.
As important is also to put your dreams into the paper. The real power of making your dreams come true is still taking action. As hard as it sometimes can be for a dreamer 🙂
Write them down, collect photos to a beautiful album or collect dream boards on Pinterest. I use all these methods, just because i enjoy all of them! It`s about collecting creative ideas and inspiration. Lately, I`ve been making a new album for my dreams according to our home and for garden dreams. This also helps me to clear my mind and focus the most important things. What about you – do you write journals? Do you make your own dream albums or is Pinterest your way?
