In the Blog Spotlight - Living the Dream

I really want to expand my blog reading.  

There's just one problem with this - I seriously lose track of time when I'm discovering new blogs.  I become fascinated and often enter new worlds that I just can't seem to leave.

So to keep a rein on my blog surfing time, I will limit myself to reading ONE post only from newly discovered blogs.  (yeah, right!)

And then I will feature one new interesting blog that I've found each week on MY blog.

This week's spotlight blog is
Thoughts From a Bag Lady in Waiting.

The featured post is Living the Dream.  Every one of us has an idea of what our dream life might look like.  We might not be living it yet, but we pretty much know what would make us happy.

Take a minute to read Linda's musings on the unique ways that some people are living their dreams.  I think you'll enjoy her short post.  I sure did.

One of Linda's readers commented that someone told them, "If you can't have what you want, then want what you have."  Isn't that some most excellent sage advice?

I think if we try hard enough, we can all find the happiness, the dream, in our everyday lives. After all, we're here, aren't we?  May as well make the very best of every day we're given.

Who knows?  Perhaps her blog post might motivate you to think more deeply on your dreams - what they are and how you can make them happen.

Tell us in the comments - what do you think your dream life might be like?


  1. Love that saying! We always think the grass is greener on the other side! I have had readers tell me I have a "perfect life"..Hmmm. Always fretting about animals, money to care for them in the way they deserved to be cared for, weather that affects our farming, i.e. no crop=no income! I could go and on. No one's life is perfect, but it sure is nice to get a glimpse of the life we are not living. And peek into another's world, even if for a blog post :)
    I will be by to visit the link. Of course, my blog sits and waits for me to write!!!!
    xo, misha

  2. well, sometimes I think the "Dream" is what keeps you from seeing the good life you already have. I think media sneaks in there and plants "dreams" that are not really yours.Big house, big car, big rock on your finger, size 0, white straight teeth.( inside joke for you Susan)

    My dream, have a family and home , the kind of home where everyone feels welcome. Of course I hid this dream, coming up during the 60's I got the message I shouldn't want that, I should want to be a brain surgeon , anything less would betray my gender.

    got the home got the family a little garden and some critters too. I am happy and that is what matters. So just make sure it is really YOUR dream not an Inception kind of dream.

  3. Thanks for stopping by my blog and for the nice comments on yours!

  4. What a great idea to highlight a new blogger on your blog! I'll be sure to check her out after I write this comment. #1 Dream is to get out of debt. While I'm working on that I just want to work on our little farm and get our fencing and buildings finished so I can get a horse again OR...a few goats or sheep to keep the grass down and for entertainment. Also another dream is to visit my sister in England and drag her off to France or to Ireland. Yes I'd really like to do that soon. Hope your day is a good one.
