But good or bad, it never changed my hopes or dreams. Because I believe that it doesn't matter how crappy your life is or how great it is, the things that never change are your hopes and dreams, I mean of course unless you want them to change. Those are two things that no one in the world can take away from you.
When I was 7 and in class, we did the usual kind of assignment in school. The "What do you want to be when you grow up" assignment. Yeah I think we all had that at one time or another. I wrote up what I called my "To Be" list. I wanted to be just about everything. I wanted to be a doctor, a lawyer, a nurse, an astronaut, an actress and at one point and time I wanted to be a trapeze artist. I was full of all sorts of imagination back then.
And now that I am older, I am all of those things and soo much more. I am a mother of 3 children, and being a parent is the hardest job in the world.
I am a doctor, because nothing heals better then mommy's kiss. I am a lawyer, because well.. who knows conflict resolution like a mother with 3 kids that are separated in age by 5 years? This woman right here! I am a nurse, because nothing works better sometimes then an old fashioned band-aid. And I am an astronaut. Well if you ask my son I am the best spaceship maker EVER! Lol And well, a trapeze artist? Well that doesn't seem to be anywhere in my future, but I suppose you never know.
So I guess, what I wanted to be when I "grew up" I have achieved and soo much more!
