....friday thought

this morning as i was walking, listening to a podcast....something was said that hit home for me and i wanted to share. so here goes.....

"if you want your dreams to come true...then wake up!!"

it really resonated with me just how much truth there is to that statement.
it is one thing to dreams our dreams....but another to actually
wake up, put one foot in front of the other to make
them happen! so, for me, it is time to take some
action towards my dreams!!!

thank you all sooooooo much for the kind comments and
words of wisdom from my last post!
it always means so much to me and it really truly helped me
in knowing i am not alone in those moments
and others get "stuck" too!!!

happy happy happy weekend to you all!!!
i am fortunate enough to have a little time with my girlfriends
this weekend in Laguna!
Thank you to my fabulous hubby for hanging with the kiddlies!!

sending love!

also.....a BIG congrats to this incredibly talented artist...
one of her paintings made the cover of the
May/June 2010 Somerset Studio Magazine!!!! whoot!! whoot!!
such deserved success!!!!!


  1. Kolleen amor, life just keeps getting in my way of visiting all my favorite blogs :( I wanted to stop and say hello real quick before I run and get my mamas bday cake for this evening...tonight...late tonight...I will be by to catch up on all your wonderful posts that I have missed :) I hope you have an amazing weekend with your friends! Besos, Rose

    ps...I am so excited to finally see the Vblog sp? that you and Kelly made :)

  2. Yes that is so very true...Dreams need action to be fulfilled. Setting goals is merely child's play in the grand scheme if you don't put the work in to reach them.

    I am sure this weekend with your girlfriends will give you even more inspiration to set your dreams in motion! Have a wonderful time!

  3. Thanks for sharing this Kolleen, this really got me thinking. I wanna wake up and make something happen. Wishing you a wonderful weekend with your ladies and best wishes to you in making your dreams come true!


  4. k.
    do you ever just look at your comments and think
    "oh my gosh! i have a lot of really awesome chicks who love me!"
    well, ya should sister.
    ya should.
    enjoy the weekend.
    enjoy having girlfriends.
    enjoy the break.
    it might just be what "unsticks" you.
    i really love you just how you are right now so you can stay stuck forever if you ask me my opinion.
    oooo! i just can.t wait to hug your creative"StUCk"beautiful soul soon.

  5. love to all your dreams & being awake to them & movement with them.
    how fun that you are now off with girlfriends!! lucky you, lucky them...
    i can just see your wings flying.

  6. What a wonderful post, I'm so glad I stopped by your inspiring blog! Dreams help to set our minds free, but you make such a good point about having to "wake up" and take action to make them happen. That actualizing is so absolutely important, and I really think that when people take action on their dreams those can be some of their proudest moments! Have a wonderful weekend with friends!

  7. That's so true! In order to reach our dreams, we should push and work to make them happen. There's a quote that I love and I actually posted on my twitter recently: “Whatever you do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius and power and magic in it.”
    Hope you like it!
    Enjoy your weekend darling :)

  8. This was such a good post to read. It is so easy for me to get caught up in daydreaming about things that can happen - and harder to put them into action. Thank you for the reminder.

    I hope you had a fun weekend!

    Thank you for the birthday wishes!

    love love love

  9. You have got to be one of the loveliest women I know! I love your honest and inspiring posts! And I couldn't agree with you more. I love that there is always a time for dreaming and then a time to make those dreams a reality. And as soon as they are, there will be more dreams and the whole creative cycle begins again!! Hope you had a most magical time with your girl friends!! Love, Silke

  10. i love your post and dream blue

  11. I'm all about the "dream" thing right now . . and I just laughed when I saw that I need to "wake up!". That's so true, isn't it? Dream with open eyes . . . I think that's T.S. Eliot.
    I'll be interested to hear what your dreams are that you are taking action toward. I think the hardest part for me is figuring out my truest and most desired dream. It gets confusing sometimes.
    p.s. thank you for always leaving such heartfelt comments at my place--I appreciate that so much! Also, I will be looking into that book you suggested. . . : )


i heart love notes....
