Meet Ariel from a dreamers daze!

Age: 21

My blog is called A Dreamer's Daze. My blog is a place where I document dreams, inspiration, and daily adventures. I think the little things in life are the most beautiful, and my blog is a place for me to focus on the wonderful, everyday things in life. 

Top three personal dreams you have and how you hope to reach them?

1) Travel! I'm studying abroad in England right now, and I have the biggest travel bug! I just want to go everywhere and see everything. I am not one to ever turn down a good adventure, but my biggest goal is to just go everywhere my little heart desires. I also want to be more adventurous during my travel. 
I'm a bit of a weeny, but am somehow still an adrenaline junky. (Don't know how that works.) I would love to skydive and bungee jump at some point. I know I'll probably either pee or puke on the way down, but as long as I'm still breathing, I figure it'll be alright. ha. 

2) Write a book. I'm an English major, so it's only natural that I have a dream of being a published author, right? 
I write every single day. Sometimes I'm proud of what I produce, other days it's not very good, but consistently writing is very important to me. 

3) My biggest dream is to one day get to wake up in the mornings to a house full of babies and a man that I adore. I want to have a job that I love so much, I don't consider it work. I want a big field in the back of my house and I want to spend my evenings on my porch watching the sun set. 

What is the inspiration behind your dreams?

I learned very early on how short life is and how important it is to do, see, and love everything while you have the chance. I remind myself of that every morning and it gives me that extra push. Life is so beautiful and the thought of getting to experience it is so encouraging. 

Best advice for someone trying to reach his or her dreams.

Never give up. Never ever ever! If you can dream it, you can achieve it! Don't ever believe that you aren't good enough or strong enough to get what you want. The first step is believing you can do it. Never forget that you are beautiful and talented. You deserve to have your dreams come true. With that mindset and some hard work, everything is possible. :)

Favorite Quote
“I want a life that sizzles and pops and makes me laugh out loud. And I don’t want to get to the end, or to tomorrow, even, and realize that my life is a collection of meetings and pop cans and errands and receipts and dirty dishes. I want to eat cold tangerines, and sing out loud in the car with the windows open, and wear pink shoes, and stay up all night laughing, and paint my walls the exact color of the sky right now. I want to sleep hard on clean white sheets, and throw parties, and eat ripe tomatoes, and read books so good they make me jump up and down.”
-Shauna Niequist
