As kids we were told to “reach for the stars” and to “never stop dreaming”. When adulthood hits hard and fast it’s so easy to become lost in the daily grind and dreaming becomes something we no longer know how to do or don’t have the time to do. I don’t want this life to pass me by without dreaming and fulfilling those dreams. I have said before that we have uprooted our comfortable and stable life for my husband to fulfill his dream of becoming an engineer. I now find myself questioning what are MY dreams? I use to dream of being a dentist. Every fiber in me wanted to pursue dentistry and part of me still loves it, but now that I have tasted the freedom of being a stay at home mom and being able to plan out the day how it pleases me and the kids is great. There is still this longing inside of me at the end of the day that I want to do more. Being a stay at home mom is not a walk in the park by any means, but lately I catch myself waking up before the kids and I’m dreaming!
Life is so short and I don’t want to be 80 thinking I shoulda woulda coulda. I’m just glad dreaming isn’t limited to one thing and it has no budget. So here’s to reaching for the stars and never giving up!
