Day 6: I was Here

Dreams don't always have to be these big massive well-thought out things. Yesterday, I talked about when dreams involve helping others, which are my favorite kinds of dreams! Every morning my dream for the day is to make someone else's day just a little bit brighter. Sometimes this means a simple little text message, an email, a hand-written letter, or even a little chocolate in the mail! 

You will notice me

I’ll be leaving my mark
Like initials carved in an old oak tree
You wait and see

Maybe I’ll write like Twain wrote
Maybe I’ll paint like Van Gogh
Cure the common cold… I don’t know
But I’m ready to start ‘cause I know in my heart

I wanna do something that matters
Say something different
Something that sets the whole world on its ear
Wanna do something better
With the time I’ve been given
I wanna try
To touch a few hearts in this life
And leave nothing less than something that says
I was here

I will prove you wrong
If you think I’m all talk
You’re in for a shock ‘cause this dreams too strong
Before too long

Maybe I’ll compose symphonies
Maybe I’ll fight for world peace
Cause I know it’s my destiny
to leave more than a trace of myself in this place

  1. Just gave your link to my coworker so she can buy her daughter some necklaces for Christmas! Hope you're doing well.

  2. Yes! I think we underestimate the influence that these simple things can have on people as we go about our day!!! Love this dream talking over here. <3

  3. This is beautiful and it's so important to have dreams and even greater when we fulfill them!

  4. Love that song! Such a great message.
