Dear Mom,

I had the most incredible dream last night, flying all around. I was holding onto a pillow, I guess for security. It’s a personal dream so the only thing I can give away is that I felt immense love, joy, and freedom.

I wanted to stay in bed.

When I finally got up, the dream awakened me (once again) to know that I can do anything my heart desires, that nothing matters and that it all matters so long as I am filled with love. I need to remind myself of this when I have no self-love—when the whip in my head beats me with, Who do you think you are to write? You’ll never amount to anything. Nobody cares what you have to say.

Mom, did you have these kinds of thoughts? Were you doing exactly what you wanted to do or only what you thought you were capable of doing?

I need to fly right back into the dream and remember, always.


  1. I think we all have self doubts. But that doesn't mean we shouldn't forge ahead and pursue our dreams!

  2. I agree...self-doubts are legion! There is a quote by Richard Bach: "Argue for your limitations, and sure enough they're yours." It isn't always easy to do the opposite--argue for our talents--but we should, and often.

  3. Deep thoughts! When our moms were young, they didn't have the opportunities we have. I think most of them just did what was expected of them....marriage, kids, etc. If they were asked about pursuing their dreams, they probably wouldn't know how to respond. We, as women today, are in a pretty darn good place in time, aren't we? (and yeah, don't let those negative thoughts hang around any longer than to be heard, and sent on their way!)

  4. Thank you gals for all the encouraging words!

  5. Sounds like you were talking to God. The message is certainly right.

    I love dreams like that.


Thanks for commenting. I don't always comment back, but I do appreciate it.
