Okay ladies, I've spent the last few days pondering the meaning of life (in between the cooking, massive housecleaning/organizing projects, and watching my skin turn into my grandmothers from too much time in the pool), and this is what I've come up with: I HAVE A DREAM.
Now before you think I'm going to go all Martin Luther King on you, this is not a speech but rather a statement, followed by a question.
My dream involves associating with adults, selling products, and helping other moms.
Can you guess what it is? Anyone, anyone?
I'm here to confess that I dream of owning my own boutique. (I just LOVE that word, boutique....it sounds so much prettier than store).
Ever since I was young, (you know, a million years ago), I have loved the feeling of going into small, beautifully put together stores. I love the displays, the clothes neatly on the racks, the feeling of pride the shop owner has. (Okay, so I just love to shop too, but you get the picture).
All these self help business books that I read (although I must admit, sometimes I'm reading with only one eye open) tell me that I need to confess my dreams, say them out loud to others so that I can be accountable. I guess they think if you say them out loud it's a step towards pursuing them.
But since I'm too chicken to tell the people around me (I'm SO far away from ever possibly doing this they'll surely think I'm crazy), I've decided to tell you, my loyal followers and BFF's.
So there, I said it. I have a dream. And it may not be something that's in the cards for me at this point in my life, but who's to say that it never will be.
So come on new BFF's, it's sharing time. What are your dreams? Any unfulfilled ambitions that you've stuffed so far inside that you're not sure if they still exist? If you could step out and do one thing other than what you're currently doing, what would it be?
Come on, I spilled my guts, it's your turn. I promise not to laugh no matter what (unless of course your dream is to be the president or something. Actually at this point though I'd say go for it, I think you may actually have a real shot).
