And Seriously, is that so bad?
Life isn’t about setting a goal and being so laser focused on it that you never stray from the Path.
I don’t mind ending up anywhere, anywhere might be more interesting than either here or there.
I was just reading about a stay at home Mom who had become very successful in her business, but she is giving it all up
for the family that she stayed at home for in the first place! See, she realized that she just never got to spend any real quality
time with her husband or her kids so for her that pot of gold at the end of the rainbow just doesn’t shine as brightly
as the two bundles of joy she had given birth to.
I’m not saying that you should give up on your dreams and aspirations, oh I would never even suggest such a thing!
What I am saying is that the road is your life. You’ve heard it before, it’s the journey not the destination.
So enough about you, lets talk about me…
As a child, I thought I would be a doctor when I grew up.
As a teenager I thought I would be a writer when I grew up.
As a twentysomething single mother of two I thought I’d do something with computers when I grew up.
As a thirtysomething wife and mother of three I finally got my Bachelors and planned to be paid more than my age when I grew up.
In my early 40’s I found myself a musician’s wife and thought that I’d just travel a lot and say “I’m with the band” when I grew up .
In my late 40’s I thought I would become the next MLM success story when I grew up
And as I prepare to hit that half century mark, I can honestly say – I still don’t know what i want to be when I grow up, but man I have had so much fun and met so many nice people while I’ve been trying to figure it out.
I can’t wait to see what’s next!
