    So very true. Being able to dream big yet also enjoy the present = secret to a happy life!

    We have very similar dreams. I think you can definitely be content and thriving and be in a different season. That comes from the Lord and meanwhile, praying big prayers and dreaming big dreams. šŸ™‚

    I think this is such an important lesson. Happiness doesn't have to mean complacency but I do think there are times we realize "oh wow I've been happy but I'm really unfulfilled" (not in situations like yours but a lot of times living these wild/reckless but unfulfilling lives. I think they key is always growing and hoping to better ourselves but learning to appreciate where we are now. It can be done but I think it requires constant awareness and effort!

    I adore your positive outlook. You don't stop dreaming but you seem content with where you're at!

    Being happy and enjoying life while still pursuing your dream – that's the perfect way to put it. I do love dreaming, but my dreams seem to be changing and I'm trying to figure out which ones I want to run with!!

    My dream is the same as your dream. You are closer than me! Keep on chasing.

    I am totally with you! I'd love to write for a living too but right now I have bills to pay and a job that makes that happen, so I just enjoy my blogging on the side! Maybe someday our dreams will come true! šŸ™‚

    I definitely struggle with this. I wish there was more time to follow dreams but I'm grateful to have a good job where I do get to strengthen my professional writing skills. There's something good in nearly every situation. Love and appreciate your perspective always.

    I've been thinking so much about following my dreams and what that truly looks like lately!

    This post was very well written, and I needed to hear that.
    I swear, sometimes I get so caught up in the future that I don't really enjoy the present. I forget to be grateful for the journey.

    I think you're happiest when you're working for something. There'll always be a new dream on the horizon, and we need to accept the fact that we're happy just striving for it until we reach it and find another one. Being an author with fans who are inspired by your words sounds like a dream, but it's not something I'd personally strive for. But who knows? I hope you achieve it one day, so you can begin a new dream maybe.

    Sometimes I feel like life doesn't really allow us to dream. My husband and I have had a though 2015 and honestly most days I feel like I'm just doing what I can to make it through each day alive.

    I love this! I'm such a dreamer; I've always been constantly dreaming. I'm sure I'll always be that way, too. And sometimes I think I have been in the position where I felt incredibly unfulfilled, partly because of all my dreaming. Right now I definitely feel happy and content and it's definitely a great feeling to have those dreams, but still be happy with where I am right now. šŸ™‚
