Dreaming on Paper {Five Minute Friday}


Some 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 the name “Malachi” after hearing the name in conversation with a friend.

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

When’s the last time you dreamed on paper?

    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.
