Shared dreams have a chance of actually happening.
When you don’t share your dreams, they remain as expectations, which when they do not actualize can lead to frustration, disappointment and resentment.
You might be hoping and wanting that your family will only eat healthy foods in your home. Yes, that would be wonderful. It can only really happen with a conscious effort from both parents.
Sharing your dreams out loud to someone else forces you to better define them, to think through the nuances.
Together, you can talk about what is realistic, what is sustainable, what it will take to actualize them, the possible obstacles and ways to overcome. You can talk about what each of your roles might be and what type of support you might need from each other.
You become a team.
