Day 5 — Something you hope to do in your life.
Well, this should be easy because there are so many things that I hope to do in my lifetime. I mean nothing lofty like world peace or solving the hunger problems of the world either. I prefer to stick to things that I can actually do.
Let’s make a list, shall we!
Raise my kids to be the best adults that they can be. This is simple, right? Nope. It’s not as easy as you think especially when you’re not a perfect person (gee… hope you weren’t actually thinking that I was the picture of perfection). I know that there are more times than should be allowed where I know I’ve screwed up and I can’t take it back. Live and learn and hope for the best is all I can do in those situations. We always want our kids to do better than we did and I’m pretty sure that mine will do just that.
Education is important to me and it should be to everyone else. I made a mess out of things when I was younger and didn’t finish college like I should have until recently. I loved going back and finishing. I loved learning new things and looked forward to my classes. I would really love to be able to go back and get my bachelors degree and even my masters. I’d even like to go to classes just because they sound interesting. But there’s a cost involved with that and the price tag is pretty high.
To go along with all that education stuff I’m a history fan. I want to visit historic places throughout the U.S. and Europe. I like traveling and want to do it before I’m old and decrepit and can’t enjoy it all.
Now something more short term and easier to do would be the ability to work from home so I’m able to spend more time with my kids. My kids are the most important things in my life next to my husband. Now granted the girls are a bit older, but there are still things I can do from home with them and for them. Then there’s my son who is just about a year old now and I want to be there to teach him right from wrong, how to write his name, and all the fun things toddlers do (crazy right!?) instead of the babysitter.
What about you? Is there something special that you hope to do in your life?
