Learn more about your partner with a dreamcatcher as a simple way to share your dreams and goals for the future together. A solid relationship has a shared vision created with honesty, support, and commitment to turn their dreams into reality.
Personalize the optional label with "Our Dreams" or "(name's) Dreams" by filling in the PDF form fields. Share one dreamcatcher together by adding each of your names on top of the paper strips. Choose from the colors cyan or orange.
Strips of paper make up the feathers at the bottom to write down your dreams and goals. Write on the back of the paper strips for more room. You both may be surprised with something unknown.
Sit down facing each other on the couch, a picnic, or any other quiet setting for one hour without interruption.
Not only do you have a great conversation as you compare your dreams, but also a written record to help you remember. Keep those dreams in front of your eyes as a reminder.
Take steps towards fulfilling the goal. For example, your spouse always dreamed of playing the guitar. Now you have a great Christmas or birthday gift idea. Research some guitar lessons for beginners. Give him/her time to practice by cheerfully carving out time daily or weekly in a busy calendar. You can make dreams work with mutual support and sacrifice.
One year from now, flip through your dreamcatcher again to see how much you've accomplished together. Add new dreams when you've reached the old ones.
