One of the things I am positive about is never becoming stagnant. I think as children we all have these grand dreams of what we are going to become. I know I had at least 10 promising careers I’d be grow up to be one day.
Life hit and then the kids and those plans went on hold. Truth be told, I probably would never be Mariah Carey. I probably would not become a movie star or even a more practical photo journalist with National Geographic.
It dawned on me recently that I was 3 years away from 30. I sort of skipped over my quarter life crisis and was now having one with a glass of wine in a bubble bath. 27 with 2 kids, 1 husband scratch those 2 off the list. I’d also made a successful cross country move, drafted out my children’s book and became one hell of cook.
The things I wanted to be however were missing. I hoped to be creative and adventurous. While being a stay home mom these things are required, I was not jumping out of air planes. I read somewhere that I should put down 100 things I would like to do in my life. It took me about 2 hours to come up with a list I was happy with. The next piece of advice was to find a way to accomplish at least 1 of those per year.
If I live to be 100, I will have completed 70 items on the list. This blog is one of them. I hope you enjoy.
