My childhood dreams..

ok. where do I start with this? I have wanted to be many things in my life. At first I wanted to be a teacher, because I love helping people learn stuff, and then I realized I would hate getting paid only once a month. SO then I wanted to be a Psychologist and found out AFTER I took all the classes in high school that you have to go to college for 10 years and I knew I couldn’t afford to pay back that much. So- after my kids were born I kept asking myself how to make money from home so that I could be with them. I tried to work outside the home (wal-mart) and I cried (I know- I’m an emotional mess sometimes) because I felt with going to college and working and sleeping I wasn’t getting to see them that much. So here I am- trying my best with the Internet thing. Trying to hard to connect with people like me, who have experience and can share with me a little. Can guide me in ways I don’t know about yet. That’s the reason I love blogging. Meeting awesome new people who love you as their “friend” and not just someone they met online. So anyway- I want to be a WAHM, making my own stuff and selling it. I am getting further and further everyday although I haven’t sold anything yet. I believe my hard work will get me far in life. I know it isn’t going to fall in my lap and I accept that. I want to be the girl who works hard and puts 100% into it, so that in the end- my kids will know that as long as they work toward their dream, it could come true.

I thank you guys @ BloggyMoms for challenging us to write this. I had been meaning to post more ABOUT ME on here and all that but I have been so busy. I am glad I took a little time to write this, my soul feels a little more refreshed now. Thanks.
