Dreaming on Paper


Dreaming-on-paper-novice-mommy-blogSome say that dreaming in black and white could be a sign of depression. Dreaming in a foreign language is a sign that you have mastered that language. And dreaming on paper? When you dream on paper your dreams are most likely to come to fruition.

Of course, I’m not talking abut the kind of dreams you have when you’re fast asleep . I’m talking about the kind of dreams you dream with your eyes open. The kind you dream when you are fully cognizant of life around you. The things you’d like to do. Places you’d like to go. People you’d like to meet. Jobs you’d like to have. Books you’d like to write. 

Something very powerful happens when we write our dreams down. Seeing those dreams in writing activates us to achieve them.

I know this from personal experience!

Several years ago I attended a conference where I was introduced to the concept of keeping a dream book. That day I started dreaming. By the end of the one hour session I had over 100 dreams written down. After leaving that conference, I went and purchased a book and started writing down my dreams. I still have the book. I have dated several achieved dreams and have added hundreds more.

In fact, about a year and half prior to becoming pregnant I wrote down a boy’s name after hearing the name in conversation with a friend. I told her that it would by my baby’s name.

I can’t wait until the day I can show my son that I dreamed him up on paper before he was born.

When’s the last time you dreamed on paper?

    Aww, i’m glad you joined us! I love the idea of a dream book! It would be especially fun to add the dates later.

      Yes, it is. I love going through my book and seeing the dates. Especially, in times when I feel a little lost. Thanks for reading. 🙂

    A dream book on paper. So wonderful! Thanks for sharing the idea! I’ve heard the same about goals: write them on paper and they are much more likely to come to fruition. LInking up with you via #fmfparty.

    What a wonderful idea! I haven’t done this before in this manner but I definitely want to start one now. I agree that it will be so cool in the future to show your son how you dreamed him before he was born (with the paper to prove it).

    What an interesting post! I always think I’ll remember my dreams and then never do. Perhaps I need a dream book!

    I love how this was written and worded. I used to write a lot more: lists, plans, etc. But I find myself writing less – and getting less done. Now, for me its because the kids color on every single piece of paper we own… lol. I need to get in a better habit with writing lists again because you are so right on this one!

      Thanks! I need to get back to writing lists myself! 🙂
