A Dream Life

Yesterday, I was watching my weekly Tuesday episode of MarieTV. Marie asked us all to write our life dreams into the comments section. I did. And I wanted to share it here too so I had a copy for myself.

"I can picture it now. The perfect white house with perfect black shutters, maybe a crisp red door. The backyard isn’t huge but has space to grow food and flowers; there’s even a chicken coop. My three boys (only one exists now :) )  running around laughing while my husband and I sit in the perfect white Adirondack chairs sipping whatever it is we sip in the sun. The perfect ending to a great day. A day that began with a nourishing breakfast, some homeschool type education, then lunch. The next four hours I work my dream job. I don’t know if I would work out of a home office or have a space in one of those shared work space offices. I share my dreams and I help other people to realize theirs. A job full of inspiration and encouragement. Though, now I’m pretty much clueless as to what exactly that would be. After we spend our time outside, we finish the day with a nourishing dinner of real foods. Then we thank God for a wonderful day and go to sleep excited for what the next day holds."

This I know to be true. I will forever be working on my heart, practicing gratitude and being happy right where I am because I am exactly where I'm supposed to be for right now. Maybe one day I will have that dream or maybe one day what I have will be my dream.

  1. That sounds pretty amazingly ideal! I need to remember to practice gratitude on a more regular basis, too.
