Dreaming

Do you have a dream? Do you have a goal you are working towards? Or something you want to achieve? I have many dreams and a few goals I`m working with. I`m no longer so sure about those goals because for some reason they always seems to involve counting calories and that does not fill me with joy and happiness. To find a dream to focus on is even harder. My dreams tend to be financial impossible to fulfill.

In the world of online chatting so much evolve around goals and dreams. Every time I am encouraged to focus on these things my brain freezes up and I can`t see past my coffee mug. After thinking long and hard without moving forward I just grab a thought and pretend it`s my dream or goal. Way to go:)

I guess that is one of the reasons I got so impressed with this lady…

This is Ellen Marie Hansteensen. She bought Littleisland Lighthouse a few years ago. A lighthouse on a tiny island outside Bø in Vesterålen and she has a dream…

Saturday morning I found a documentary on net-tv about this woman and her tiny dot on the map and it was fascinating. I saw it twice. The program was from 2010 so I did a search to see if she still was living out her dream up there in the north and she was. Now you can stay if you’re brave enough. Winter is rough and you have no guarantee that you will arrive on the right day. Exciting? I would love to stay a few days in the winter. Can I dream about that?
