"It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live"
-Albus Dumbledore (okay fine, J.K. Rowling technically)

This quote is something I need to remember to live by. I have dreams. Big dreams. And most of them require us picking up and moving across the world to make happen. And while I won't forget what I want, it will take a lot of time, planning, money and some minor miracles for that to happen. And it's great not to forge those dreams. BUT, I do need to be better about living in the now also. I can still make out lives here amazing until we get to fulfill our other dreams.

  3. I saw your comment over on Jenni's blog today that you used a Harry Potter quote as well so I had to check it out because I did as well and turns out it's the same one! It's a good one!

  4. I found you from the Story of my Life. I really like this quote. I, too, get lost in thinking of all the dreams. All the what ifs and whens and one days. But your quote is right -- it's great to dream, but we don't want to forget to live our lives in the mean time.

    Thanks for sharing :-)
