Hello & Welcome to the only social network dedicated to inspire & share in the journey of pursuing our dreams! woo-hoo! How excited are you to be one step closer to living your dreams! Now, let's get you can get started:
CREATE YOUR PROFILE. Click "my dream diary" and add you favorite photo along with your personal information... you know how to do this from that other social network, riiiight?
WRITE YOUR DREAM at the top of your profile in the space where it says, "What's your dream". Create as if it already in is your life. For instance, "I have a hugely successful social network inspiring people to pursue their dreams and Oprah is a close personal friend...Oprah & Gayle & Me, the three amigos!" haha! Act as if it's already in your life and watch how the universe will unfold itself towards your dream. If you don't know what your dream is, click the tab above, "TIPS" to help get you going. And, search around for other dreamers to get you inspired. I've changed my dream over 10x since I started writing it out. It WILL change. You become clearer and clearer about what you want once you write it out.
SHARE YOUR JOURNEY. This is the fun part! You can share the day to day journey via daily blogs... "Today I made five phone calls inquiring about doing a benefit. Someone actually called back! Woo-hoo!" or "Today I don't feel so motivated... I don't what wrong, maybe it's because I sleep on a couch bed and I eat cheese for dinner every night..."
GRATITUDE LISTS. This is a big one for me and has changed my life dramatically. "Gratitude is so important to the rise of your dream. If you're not happy where you are now, you won't get to where you want to be." - Pastor Joel Osteen. It's contagious. It works. Let's imagine a world where instead of saying, "Did you see so-and-so's status on Facebook?" we are saying, "Did you read so-and-so's Gratitude List today!!" How inspiring! Goosebumps!!!
VIDEO DIARIES. You can also talk about your journey via video diaries, like I did (see "The Dream Diaries" trailer). Upload videos and share! It's that simple.
BE YOURSELF & HAVE FUN. My intention is to create a supportive and nurturing community where we can share our dreams & experiences in an honest way. Life is too short. Do what lights you up inside. I promise...the journey is worth it!

While he was recovering at home, he was provided with the hospital bed with a nurse tending to his care and needs.My mom initially suggested that my cousin FP, prior to her arrival, could sleep in the hospital bed since we really didn't have any other available beds. I told her it would be weird. Fortunately, my mom started thinking that my dad…See More
