“All that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream” – Edgar Allen Poe

What do you dream about at night? And what do you dream of accomplishing when you’re awake? Do you ever make your dreams come true? I used to write all my dreams down first thing in the morning, while they were fresh in my head, and am trying to get back into the habit of doing just that. It’s super therapeutic, and really interesting to read through after some time’s passed. My dream journal has crazy etchings about tidal waves, chases, armies, you name it. When it comes to dreams and aspirations in the waking-life however, the visions are not as over-the-top, and well, the cynic in me takes the reins. I am definitely more reserved with goals that I set for myself. Why? Simple. I dread disappointment. I’m afraid of aiming too high. What if I don’t reach that goal? What if I can’t for the life of me, make that dream come true? Even worse, what if I’m not good enough? I’m open to any advice you guys have on coping with self-doubt. It’s something I’ve struggled with my whole life! Which is crazy, considering I have amazing, supportive parents & people around me. Every day I not only think about what could be, but I continue to work on how to just BE. So I guess what I’m trying to say is, let’s try to not sell ourselves short. Let’s dream, and not be afraid to dream. Thanks for reading, and of course, for scrolling 🙂

    These pictures are beautiful. Great background, great outfit, perfect makeup- I loved this post!

  • Loved the words. You are right in saying that writing about dreams is super therapeutic, and really interesting to read when you retrospect especially!

  • Jolina

    I very rarely remember my dreams enough to jot them down. Though I think mostly they’re about the last thing I watched or read!

  • You know what you have just inspired me to create a dream journal I think I would be interested about what I would find! I remember I had a dream, well more of a nightmare really and it was about me tucking into some chicken as I had forgotten I was a vegetarian and I woke up in a fright. It might sound like a meat eaters wet dream but as an actual vegetarian it frightened me lol. I wonder what my subconscious is trying to tell me. On another note I love your outfit here, especially the red dress/co ord x

    What an amazing Photo shoot, I must really congratulate for this. It gave so much of hope, optimism to chase the dreams you have!

  • Felicia

    I loved this post! What gorgeous photos and a beautiful place to shoot! Thanks for sharing 🙂

  • I wish I could remember my dreams enough to create a dream journal, it would be so fun to go back and read through them all. What a gorgeous, dreamy shoot too!

  • What a beautiful post and the imagery is perfect for this post. Always so creative honey.

  • I usually remember my dreams. Three nights ago I dreamt of something and it was very real and it was like an enlightenment, which was the feeling I got when I woke up but could not remember what it was.

    i really like the way, you have put across your thoughts. We all need some kind of motivation to kick start our selves and do something big.

  • Nice thoughts about chasing dreams and how remember and write them out.

  • Such a beautiful thought for the day. You’re right, it’s never too late to chase after our dreams. I listened to a piece on NPR the other day, Terri Gross interviewed someone about sleep. He said that everyone dreams, although most people just don’t remember them. He also went on to say how helpful it was if we wrote them down right after waking up. x

  • At night my dreams are always random but pleasant. As far as my dreams in life go, I really need to go after them a bit harder.

  • I’d like to think I’m a dreamer but I am rather conservative. I can see a ting in my mind and shoot it down as too up-in-the-sky almost immediately and make it more realistic. Your pictures are awesome btw
