My 37th Year

Well, my birthday just passed and I’m officially OLD. I kid, I kid.

Actually, I don’t feel old at all. I guess I’m the epitome of “young at heart” because that’s exactly how I feel. I know that I still have a lot of years ahead of me and I’m going to need every bit of those years to make my dreams come true. I can’t put my finger on exactly what I think I should be doing, but I know that the life I’m leading right now is not my dream. So starting this year, I want to make it MY DREAM LIFE. I want to find my creativity and come up with the perfect plan to live out everything my heart desires.

I don’t think I’ve ever dreamed of being famous, but I have definitely dreamed of being successful and comfortable money wise. I never dreamed of being rich, per se. But I never saw myself lacking.

When I was younger, I thought I wanted to be a nurse. I went to nursing school and everything….of course I never finished. Three years into the program, I realized that wasn’t really what I wanted to do. I wasn’t all that great at science, which should have told me that I shouldn’t have been in that field anyway! But I was to stubborn at the time to really see that. Finally, I was forced to, though. My grades weren’t up to par and even though I switched my major to business, I just became so lost and disheartened that I FAILED at something.

Now I know Nursing wasn’t for me. But it’s been a very long road at finding a new dream career-wise. I still struggle with it now because I know what I’m doing right now is definitely not what I envisioned OR what I really want. So the big question is….what do I want? That is by far the toughest question I have had to answer. I want to find the answer this year because I think that is the key to my happiness and success.
