dreams into reality :: artful blogging

1:17 AM

I mentioned at the beginning of the year that my word for 2011 was dream.  It's been amazing to see dreams come true before my very eyes.  It's like a book I'm reading with a happy ending.  When I did the dreaming exercises last October, I had a dream for this blog.  I absolutely love this space.  I love the creative outlet it gives me.  I love the friends I can stay in contact with and the new people I meet.  I love being able to exercise my writing and show off my favorite photos.  When I actually put words to paper, it was no surprise that one my dreams had to do with my blog.

Coming back from that personal retreat, sailing on the rush of those dreams, I felt inspired.  I wrote an article and submitted it to Artful Blogging, hoping that they might consider me for a feature in their magazine.  In all honesty, it felt like a long shot, but I knew I had to try.  As time passed, I drew the conclusion that it wasn't what they were looking for.  Nearly three months after my submission, I about peed in my pants as I read an email that popped up in my inbox.  They wanted to feature my blog!

I see this as a celebration of a dream fulfilled and a celebration of all of you who have followed and are following my journey.  Friends, without your encouragement and faithfulness, who knows if that dream would have even come to the surface.  So let's celebrate, shall we!
