Most of those dreams where hidden somewhere in my heart and during this self exploration, they have returned to me.
Looking back at myself as a child, and then during my teenage years I can feel how those dreams were replaced with new ones, like finishing a degree and family.
It was not an easy process, it took time and many conversations with my parents, family and teachers. I am sure they meant well, but now, I can see that young woman telling herself, those dreams are not as important as graduating and taking care of your family.
I am thankful for my education and of course my family is my priority, but some how, I feel that I didn't have to put everything that I dreamed behind, hiding it in my inner most sacred place, never to be found.
I could have realized many of those dreams and do all the things that I was doing, I just needed to be creative with my time.
Reality is, I can't go back in time, but I can work with those dreams today, and tomorrow and the next day. See, that's the beauty of dreams, you can work with them when you want to, it will never be late.
Here is an art Journal page in my Book Of Days, that I made several months ago but never dared touch, it is so beautiful. But Today as I looked at it, I just felt that there was no use in having a blank art journal, I need to fill those pages with my story, my dreams and my life whether I am happy or sad.
So dare to dream and do it!
I would like to share this project in the following places:
