Wishful Thinking {guest post by Daydream Living}

They say a dream is a wish from the heart...

My heart wished for different things at different times in my life.

When I was younger, the wishes where about getting the newest jeans or my drivers license. Later they where filled with images of a healthy and happy family. In between there where many other wishes and daydreams.

And guess what? Almost every single wish has come true. Only the one where I can sing like a bird never made it....{my singing will clear out a room before you can say...... well, you can fill in the blank}.

I have worn my jeans over and over, and I did a little happy dance when I passed my drivers test. Everyday, I am grateful to be the mama of my two girls and the partner of my sweetheart, living a good life. And although we are in a different country again, away from our family and friends back home, I love our lifestyle. Through our many moves, we have met so many people from different backgrounds, and it has made our little foursome stronger.

Life is for living, to enjoy the here and now.

To me that includes my daydreams...

About a life near the sea....
Walking my girls to school in the morning sun...
Spending time in my own business, doing what I love...
Sipping a drink with my sweetheart on our front porch while talking about our day....

Some people will say dreams should stay just that. Dreams.

But if you don't have a dream, how can you have a dream come true?

So to all my fellow dreamers out in the world,



Daydream Living is a lifestyle blog authored by the very lovely Maureen.  She and I discovered we have quite a bit in common including our affinity for daydreaming.  It's nice to know that others are passionate about this incredibly important pastime too.

  11. I share many of Maureen's daydream's...I would love to live closer to the ocean (I know I shouldn't complain about a 40 minute drive but, you know) and I would love to someday walk Emerson to school. Big dreams these days. Funny how those change over the years.

  12. this was such a beautiful post, and I especially love that line about having a dream come true. I agree!

  13. One of my favourite songs when I was a kid was David Cassidy's 'Daydreamer'. I remember walking along a desserted beach, singing it at the top of my lungs....'I'm just a daydreamer, walking in the rain, chasing after rainbows I may never find again.' I am totally with you on this post Maureen, it was beautiful, thankyou. Love Linda x
