Dreams are meant to be shared

This past week has been amazing. I have released so much excess clutter and my spirit is shining brighter. I believe that posting here daily about this journey has helped with the progress I have made. When I decided to share my dream of a peaceful home, I was nervous. I didn't want people to know that part of me. I was fearful that I would become ashamed, and shame has always stopped me in my tracks in the past.

Today my dream is reaching another group of people. I submitted my dream to the Dream Weaving blog and you can find it there today. I know that I have been greatly helped by all the encouragement that I have received from those who read here. So spreading my dream can only bring me more encouragement while I'm on the final stretch. In one week there will be a birthday party here for Little #6 and two of her cousins. I will not have to close bedroom doors or block off the steps to the basement, in fear that people will see our clutter. The clutter will be gone. My home will be one big open door and my heart will be more open also.

So please join me here and help spread my dream. If you have a dream maybe you would consider telling people. Dreams are meant to be shared, and Dream Weaving is a great place to do it.

Thank you all for your support. My updates will continue this week and I'm very excited and nervous about what the final outcome will be.

Just my thoughts.

A peaceful home is a beautiful dream, and there's no reason anyone should ever make you feel ashamed for it. Thank you for sharing it with us, and may it come true very soon!

I second Jay's comments. I've loved reading about every step along the way, and will celebrate with you when you reach your final resting point with this awesome purging & rebirthing. Happy Monday!

You are so right Jill, dreams are meant to be shared.

Sharing enriches lives. Sharing dreams make each of us and others we shared our dreams reach out for the Stars.

I know you will have a fantastic birthday party. :-)

Wonderful, inspiring post.

Jay - Thank you for the kind words. I am probably the most guilty of making me feel ashamed, but that has truly changed. I really don't feel ashamed any more. I am living my dream and that makes it come true.

Megan - Thanks, Megan. I am seriously considering celebrating on my blog with before/after pics when I finish each room. I'm not brave enough to commit to it, but I am considering it. Thank you for supporting my in this journey to freedom.

Peggy - Thank you for the encouragement here and at Dream Weaving. It makes the job a whole lot easier. Peace to you.
