So happy to have another Calling All Dreamers post to share with you all today. I appreciate and value the way Nadine writes with such beautiful honesty, and I want to thank her for sharing her heart here today!
I had a dream once.
It was beautiful. Filled with colour and emotion, thoughts
and plans, it was absolutely littered with my heart and soul.
I got busy. I filled up my time with things other than
colour and emotion, and somewhere in between losing those thing, I forgot about the dream that had so long

I’m going to dream again.
The dream of today is simply to dream again. To dig within
my heart and find the space in between all of these thoughts. The space filled
with that thing.
I’ll say it again. I am going to dream again.
