When I retired I really did not know what my dreams were. So it took five years to find them. It took a lot of time to reflect about who I was and what I wanted in this stage of my life. It took talking and listening to other people about their dreams and then realizing that we all have dreams but in order for a dream to come true it has to be our own dream not a copy or imitation of someone else's dream. We have to be very clear about our own dream and be able to articulate exactly what we want. Then I believe we have to tell people about our dream and last but not least work very hard to make it come true.
Now I have lots of dreams and one by one I see them coming true. My latest dream is about the woman in the painting. I have started painting again and I am enjoying painting women who I think have a story to tell. My dream is that I would meet a teacher who would help me make these paintings much more whimsical and a lot more interesting. I don't care if we work one on one, in a group, or online. I just want someone who can see my vision and help me to create it in a fun atmosphere. So if you are reading this and know someone who fits this description, please let me know.
I believe in the power of dreaming. I believe that we all have the power to make our dreams come true if we know what they are, let other people know what we are dreaming, and then work really hard to take the action or actions necessary to make our dreams come true. What are you dreaming about this week?
