I love this! I’m a huge list person so it’s perfect! I’m taking this idea with me to my boring genetics class… will share when I’m done.

Thank you! Hope you got some exciting plans out of your genetics class!

I tried but yours are just too perfect! I also wish I could speak French so I could only think about buying French magazines and being liked by the French folk. Your dreams are beautiful!

Let me know when you’re looking for apartments in NYC, I’m just a few leaps away!

I love the idea of seeing where you are already on your dream list! I’m going to have to ponder this for a bit. Thanks!

Hope you got some exciting new insight!

What if you are not sure what your dream goals are any more?

Amelia, this sounds really frustrating and confusing. Send me an e-mail if you wish?

I think I’ll write a post about this topic, so stay tuned!

Sorry to butt in, but here’s something that helped me: start with the things you are sure you love and make a list. Like, you might want without any doubt to become a woman that is always flawlessly dressed. Or that reads very much. Or that volunteers in order to make a change. In time you may discover more specific goals, like where you want to live or what would you like your career to be. In time, everything will become clearer and you will know for sure what your dreams are. I’m still not there yet, but have made some progress and definitely learned more about myself. I hope you will, too:)

Great idea! Your dream sounds perfect :)

Marthe March 22, 2012 at 7:08 am

It does, doesn’t it! Going to make those dreams come true sooner rather than later!

Katherine March 21, 2012 at 1:12 pm

Oh wow, what a great idea. I’m going to try this out as soon as possible… but first, I need to re-evaluate my dreams ;)

Reply

Marthe March 22, 2012 at 7:08 am

Sounds like a good plan, Katherine! Re-evaluation is important sometimes!

What a great way to see the good in the life that you have right now. We all (me included) need to learn to live in the present and revel in the joy that is here now. Thanks for the inspiration.

I just discovered your blog and I love it :)

Your NYC life sounds so dreamy! But you’ve also made me realise that there are things I can do right now to realise my dreams without boarding the next plane out of the UK. Thank you for sharing :)

So great to hear that you’re inspired! There are so many ways to make dreams come true, all you need to do is to think a little outside of the box!

Marthe, I cannot express how much I love this post.

On the one hand I love it because it’s inspiring people to create luscious dreams and fully immerse themselves in them. On the other hand I love it because it’s helping people wake up to how they can fulfil parts of their dreams right here and now.

You’re fabulous honey. Keep doing what you’re doing. xx

Thank you for another inspired and inspiring post. I constantly find myself walking around with my head in the future, living in my dreams…this ‘exercise’ has reminded me that so many aspects of my dreams–attitudes, hobbies, etc.–can be and are part of my life right now, while I’m on my way to achieving the bigger dreams.

Reply

Marthe April 12, 2012 at 8:42 am

I’m so happy to hear that you’re reminded of the awesomeness in your present. <3

This was incredibly fun to read. I was right there with you in the ‘dream life’ #1 & 2! I’ve been doing a little bit of this as part of ‘The Artist’s Way’ (now in week 2) and the imaginary lives tasks are insightful. I’m in the throes of acting out some of the things that were in my list (doing some watercoloring, indulging in french films, etc) and it does give a different perspective – from constantly imagining to actually doing.

Marthe April 12, 2012 at 8:43 am

Thank you!

I love the Artist’s Way too, and now you’ve inspired me to pick it up again! Definitely a book worth re-reading! :)

I absolutely loved this post! I struggle with hating the city where I live and try to live by this phrase, “Blossom where you’re planted” and it’s been so hard. But this post is so brilliant and gave me insight into living my dream life here. It’s so simple, but I didn’t think of it myself, so thank you! You’re list is adorable and I hope you get to New York, it IS fabulous! -Carmen
