Dreams Can Come True!

Our dreams have become reality and yours can too! For as long as I can remember, my family has wanted to live on a small acreage with chickens clucking in the backyard, a horse neighing in the pasture and gardens filled with organic vegetables waiting to be harvested. In August of 2016 our dream finally became a reality. We purchased and moved to a small acreage that we plan on turning into a micro farm!

Luckily we had some funds to rapidly put systems into place and my husband had nearly 2 weeks of paid vacation. We have spent the past few weeks working on a variety of exciting yet sometimes challenging projects.  As I sit here this morning with my blue heeler at my side, watching the glorious sun cascading across our family’s land, I feel truly blessed. I now know what it feels like to have my dreams come true! It is almost indescribable but the following observations will give you a glimpse of what it is like to make your dreams a reality:

  • I am no longer striving at a frenzied pace to create change in my life
  • I feel a level of contentment I have never before experienced
  • Rather than feeling the need to hit snooze each morning, I wake with a feeling of excitement and joy
  • When my kids come home from school, they leap out of the car ready for their daily dose of nature adventure
  • A new sense of purpose infuses my being
  • All my actions are in perfect harmony with my purpose
  • Every aspect of my life is fulfilled
  • Every day I find more ways to contribute to the greater good
  • Every day I follow my bliss
  • Everyday of my life is like a dream come true

After reflecting on this shift in my life, I found myself with a deep desire that cannot be ignored. I want to dedicate my life to helping others achieve their dreams. I want each person I work with to live a life they love and love the life they live. If you want to make your dreams come true, if you want to live a life you love and love the life you live, if you are ready to take action today, please feel free to comment, message me, or check out my site that is focused on making dreams come true: WakeUpTribe.com

  4. Funny stories in plenty do I have!

    Many years ago I worked at a quarter horse stud. At the end of one row of stalls there was a bin of wood shavings for the stalls – a mighty convenient place for a nest and brooding. The only problem was one of the ducks had decided the same thing. The hen being bloody minded laid beside the duck and as soon as the duck left for a wander, she pinched the eggs, rolling them into her side of the shavings.

    Every day I moved them back before the duck returned. (By the way, she didn’t want the hen’s eggs.) Following the last egg the duck went broody. The hen still tried to steal the eggs so I put a board up between them. When the hen started sitting she spend the whole time pecking the duck’s head. By the time the ducklings hatched the duck didn’t have a feather on her head!

    I don’t know what would have happened if the hen had won. The first thing the ducklings did was head for the nearest water.


    1. Hey Helen,

      Lol. Animals are so interesting! This is my first time having a brood of chickens. They aren’t yet laying eggs so I haven’t even really gotten into the tricky part of raising hens. I have had a lot of interesting moments so far and look forward to learning more. Thanks so much for sharing your story!
