Dare to Dream

. Hello everyone! Week 2 of our TPT Seller Challenge is underway with the topic of “Dare to Dream.” I have really struggled with this post, but probably not for the reasons you might think. I am a natural born “big dreamer.” Growing up, I firmly believed I could do anything I wanted to do in life, and I had fantastic goals to go with that belief. As an adult, I have learned that I can’t exactly do ANYTHING due to practicality and responsibility, but I still tend to dream big. It was difficult for me to narrow down what I really want from Teachers Pay Teachers.

I began selling to earn enough to buy the things I wanted to buy from TPT and to buy enough ink to print them. I’ve met that goal, at least, so what now?

1.   Give Back-I would love to make enough to give enough to make a huge impact for a charity. I give when and where I can, but it always feels like it isnt enough to matter.

2.   Be Debt Free- I would love to pay off all credit cards and that impossible student loan I have.

3.   Take an Awesome Vacation-It has always been one of my dreams to visit Ireland. My daughter inherited that dream, so Id like for the two of us to take the trip with my mom.

4.  Home-This is going to sound a little selfish, but here goes. I really dont like where I live. When we bought the house, we had the intention of upgrading in a few years. Unfortunately, the housing market took a turn for the worse, I was furloughed several days of several school years, and my husband’s hours were cut considerably. The economy is improving, but we feel sort of stuck where we are.

I have been incredibly blessed already through the TPT world. I have met my initial goal and have made a lot of new friends. Any dreams realized now would be icing on the cake!

Thank you to these awesome bloggers for hosting this challenge:

I’d love to hear your dreams as well! Leave a comment below, and tell me about them.


  1. EEK! I want to go back to Ireland! A mother/daughter trip would be incredible! I hope you are able to bless her in that way!

  2. Debt free is a great goal I think most people should make :)
