What's your dream??

Lately I have been thinking a lot about my life and where I am and what else I hope to achieve. I have been putting my own interests on the back burner for quite some time to take care of my family. I am certainly not complaining about that, I am happy that I get to stay at home (most of the time) and raise my kids and I am happy that my husband has gotten the chance to build his business and do the things he enjoys doing with it. But, I have to say I have been getting a little restless lately. Then I saw this journal cover and had to buy it.

I am so ready to move on with my life! Of course I will still take care of my family, but I have forgotten myself somewhere along the way. Time to live some of my dreams. Who knows what tomorrow will bring...bad or good. So I say, go after it, whatever it may be. Live out your dreams, or at least try. I know my biggest fear is failure. What if I suck, what if I am not good enough. Get over it already and do it! So what if people don't like it, at least you TRIED!!!

Failure will never overtake me if my determination to succeed is strong enough.

Weird that we're in this "place" at the same time. Natalie asked me yesterday what I wanted to be when I grow up, and I realized I'm not doing any of the things I had dreamed for myself (except for the family thing).
I have a friend who is constantly encouraging me to write, and after a conversation with Kate, my desire for my dream small business is aching inside me. But economics make me wary of seeking that out.

Girl, we're ALL there together. I think since our kids have gotten out of the baby stage and are becoming more independent (at times) it's freed up some time and brain power and we're starting to feel those restless feelings.

Maybe you should go back to school, pursue a different career, or just take classes that interest you. You might uncover a hidden passion along the way.

You know I'm with you 100%. Ok, well maybe not on the private detective thing.

OMG. I swear every woman/mother goes through this at some point. I went through a few years ago and a one of my best friends is going through it now. It's hard not to forget about yourself when there's so many other little people to care for in your life.

Love that journal!
