"Abide in the simple and noble regions of thy life, obey thy heart."
1.) Write down your top three dreams
2.) Then write down what’s holding you back from realizing them
1.) Become successful in something I love doing while standing on my own two feet
2.) Find time to incorporate singing and performing back into my life
3.) Start a family
I don’t necessarily think that anything is holding me back from realizing my dreams.
I do think that it’s sometimes hard to remember the big picture when things don’t go exactly the way you planned.
There are goals that I’ve set for myself that cannot and will not be compromised, no matter how many bumps in the road there have been/will be.
In order to be a good wife and mother, I need to make sure that I’m ready for those things. Because if I’m not fulfilled / don’t feel like I’ve done everything that I’ve needed to do to work on me, I will hate myself for it. I don’t want to feel like I’m wasting my talents by not writing or singing. It’d be just that – a waste. It’s been said that you have to love yourself fully before you can love someone else. And I love myself too damn much to sell myself short.
There are things I need to do before I settle down.
Otherwise, to me, that would be unsettling.
Could you imagine settling down while being unsettled?
The ultimate conundrum.
Recipe for disaster.
But I would like to have that stable job, have that hobby that I love doing on the side, and then – and only then – will I be able to fully give myself to someone else.
My family deserves the very best of me and I want to make sure that’s exactly what I give them.
Of course, things never go as planned and I’ll probably end up a forever alone with 0 kids and 12 cats.
That can’t even happen because I don’t like cats.
If I can’t amount to a cat lady, what’s left of life?
Cheese. Cheese is always there for me. I could be that lady.
Anyways, those are my dreams and ambitions. I know they will all work out for the best in one way or another. If not, we go to Plan B – cheese.
