DO NOT mark my words!!!

Ok, I don't mean to hollar, but I wanted to make my point.

Please, please do not hold me to my word- at least as far as goals, hopes and dreams.

Because dreams and goals can change. Think back to your high school days.

What did you want to do with your life?

Are you doing it now?

Believe it or not, at one time I wanted to be an Archeologist. And a school teacher. And a writer!

So I did work in a daycare center for several years, and did home daycare for about 10 years. Even worked in an elementary school as a resource person.

Did I choose to do this forever?


I write, and have been published a few times in a local magazine. But do I write full time?


Am I an Archeologist?


At one time, I dreamed of having a houseboat and floating the waters of the world. Ron wanted an RV.

Since I started homeschooling, I want an RV. I want to explore the US, go to historical sites.

Funny how I hated that stuff in school! Now I yearn for it.

Many people get frustrated when they set goals, and fail to achieve them in the time frame that they set.

Other's find themselves half-heartedly trying to achieve goals that they no longer really want to achieve. But they feel as if once a goal is set, it must be met.

Nothing will keep a person "stuck in a rut" and "underachieveing"  more than working for something we don't even desire.

So sit down and take a second look at your long term hopes, dreams and goals.

Have they changed?

Write new ones!

Are they the same, but you just need more time? Change your goal date.

Find something you truly desire and see if you don't find yourself jumping out of bed every morning eager to get to work and fulfill that dream!

Until next time......

See you at the top!

  1. I love your article. when your little you never know what can happen when you grow up. Your dreams of what you want to become can take you to a different direction. As for me, I always wanted to become a teacher, and now i am teaching my daughter at home. My mom always used to make clothes for us when we were little, and couldn't understand why she loved, until i grew up and guess, what now i am doing the same thing (Making clothes for children) How funny life can be huh!
