DMC 2 - When I Grow Up


Once upon a time, I was a relentless dreamer. I knew in my heart of hearts that I was going to be a famous journalist, a children's book writer, a poet, and I was going to marry Christian Slater. Yup, I did say that I was a dreamer.

Though some of my plans fell through, I am not yet done with my dreams. They have changed slightly but I do still have a love for creative writing. Christian Slater, however, will have to understand that I've moved on. Sorry, Chris...

Today, I still do a lot of exploring and learning. You'd think at 39, I would already have the big question figured out but the truth is, I don't. I know that being a SAHM and wife are incredible blessings and I can't imagine putting anything else before being at home, teaching and eventually homeschooling my child. So, I guess you could just say that I want to be a teacher when I grow up. But I also want to be a few other things.

I have long considered studying massage and holistic medicine. This is something I bring up to my husband at least a few times a month. I've thought of going to classes, getting certifications, and possibly opening my own practice so I would still be able to "mom" full time. This is a huge dream but so darn interesting and exciting.

Anything is possible.

Then there are days where I want to study nutrition. Now, this is something very personal to me, as I've adopted a mostly plant based diet and have seen incredible improvements in my overall health. Because of my personal struggles with food (and there were very many), I want to learn more and share with others. Food doesn't have to be complicated. I am finally getting this. So many people have yet to. That's where I want to help.

Anything is possible.

I am pretty sure that I've made my final dream pretty obvious... I'd love to be a creative writer when I grow up. I want to write those children's books. My love for writing poetry remains. I enjoy creating the scene, the characters, the story and especially the mood. I love books and I would love to see my name on the cover of one, one day.

Anything is possible.

I guess you could say that I am still a bit of a relentless dreamer...
