100 Dreams Beth

100 Dreams Project – The Beginning

My good friend and fellow Peaceful Posse member Trish of The Trish List started a really neat project last month that piqued my interest. A 100 Dreams Project. Basically, each week she is listing ten dreams of hers and they’re all kind of based around various themes. It is her hope that she will define her purpose in life a bit more and where she is going. I absolutely love this idea. I have had some writer’s block as of late and I think that if I participate, it will help get me out of my rut. I also think it aligns with my nourish project too – by focusing on my greatest desires and wishes I’m also focusing on myself.

Some of the dreams I have are pretty grand and may take some time to achieve. Some of them are much smaller scale and may not take as much work to have happen, but my hope is by listing these out and my thoughts about them, I can start setting some goals and figure out what I need to do to at least make some of them come true. My goal right now is to make this my Monday or Tuesday post each week until I reach 100, but may shuffle around the day based on my editorial schedule that week.

To help generate some ideas, I’m using Trish’s suggestion of listing categories and what dreams I might have that fall in each one. These are some of her category suggestions:

  • Physical
  • Emotional
  • Spiritual
  • Psychological
  • Financial
  • Creative
  • Character
  • Legacy
  • Professional

I’m also adding:

  • Family
  • Adventure

I’m excited to start thinking about this and what it could possibly lead to. I think so often we keep our dreams to ourselves for fear of ridicule or failure. But in my mind no dream is too big or too small or too anything really. So it’s time to dream out loud! I hope you’ll follow along with my journey. And please follow Trish, she’s a month into her project already and it’s been so fun to read what she’s shared!

Tomorrow I will share my first post of dreams, so please come back and check that out! As Aerosmith says “Sing with me, sing for the year, sing for the laughter and sing for the tear. Sing with me, just for today, maybe tomorrow the good Lord will take you away. Dream on. Dream on.”

  1. I am so excited to follow along with you Beth! It really becomes more eye opening as you go alone. The first 50 seemed easy to write down. The 2nd 50 are truly desires you need to search for. Thank you so much for joining me on this soul searching journey! I appreciate you! <3

  2. Okay, I FRIGGIN LOVE THIS and am so excited to see what you come up with. I think there really IS something to saying your dreams out loud, it kind of releases them from being pent up things we’d like to have happen some day to tangible realizations that are always in our grasp. And let’s be real–putting them online and speaking them aloud also holds us accountable to achieving these things in life. That’s a great thing! SO excited to see what you come up with, Beth!! XOXO and hope you had a lovely weekend, my sweet!

  3. Ohhhh! At first I thought we were talking about dream dreams. As in when you go to bed at night. And I was like, there is no way I could share those. I have the craziest, vivid, weird dreams ever! LOL . I get it now! Dreams, as in life dreams! What a fun idea! Mine would still probably be a little weird, but I just might have to share them anyways 🙂 Looking forward to reading yours!

  4. I read this on Trish’s blog and thought it is a wonderful idea. Looking forward to reading about yours – it is such a fun project.

  5. Aw, yay! I’m loving Trish’s list so it will be fun to see what dreams you have too. I think it’s great to share your dreams out loud – no matter how big or small!!

  6. I love this! I just finished the 101 in 1001 Days/Day Zero Project last year and it was a lot of fun to challenge myself in all these different areas of my life. Can’t wait to follow along and see what you can accomplish!
