Dreaming together as a couple can be the one of the exciting and uplifting conversations you can have with your spouse!
Dreaming of your future family, future career move, house, or your goals can even help lift some of the present day stresses away.
Dreaming together is a big thing for us.
When we came together to dream about our future while Marcus was going to school full time, and working. When Ash was taking care of the babies at home, it gave us something to connect over. Dreaming together helped us take a little mental vacation from our everyday stresses and give us something to look forward to; something to strive for.
As we hit our goals, we create new ones to keep us moving forward together.
When was the last time you dreamed together as a couple?
Dreaming and even planning certain things about our future goals has relieved some of the over all stress by keeping the end in sight.
Don’t be afraid to get detailed about your dreams. Create Pinterest boards, or spreadsheets, or whatever visual aids will help keep you motivated.
Dreaming like this together, about our common goal, has brought smiles, and a new level of conversation for us.
It’s something we can get excited about together, talk, and plan. (One of my favorite things to do! -Ashley)
By dreaming together, our conversations and communication have improved, adding a new spark to our marriage.
Dreaming with your husband or wife could also do the same for your marriage.
We would encourage you to bring this up next time you sit down to have a conversation and spend time together with your spouse. Don’t be afraid to dream big!
