Notes to Self
As I was cleaning today, I came across a note I wrote to myself about what I wanted out of life at that moment when I was 26-years old and still discovery who I was. I often write things to myself or sealed letters to God when I am at my lowest.
So, here is the list:
Have my first child between the ages of 28 and 30. (LOL- Well, I'm a little late on that one, but it's all good. We have the uppy puppies for now. Barbie:0 Plans: 1)
Have a better relationship with God. (Still my goal and I work on it daily. Barbie:1 Plans:1)
Get married to a man I absolutely love by the time I am 29 or 30 and stay married for the rest of my life. (Again good goal and I made it. We got married a month before my 30th birthday. Woohoo!!! Barbie: 2 Plans: 1)
Graduate by Fall 2004 (College was complicated. I began pre-med, because the plan was to be a doctor since I was two. No pressures from my parents, I just woke up one morning at two and told Mamma Spawn I was going to be a doctor. Well, that didn't happen, but I did FINALLY graduate with a degree in Public relations by my due date. Again woohoo!!! Barbie:3 Plans:1)
Have a career doing something in Public Relations (Ah, yeah, software sales has NOTHING to do with PR, but its all good. The resume needed some sales experience. Plus I would not change this to a career in Event planning.)
Be happy no matter what. (Again good goal. But hard to measure...so we shall leave the scale as is.)
grow old gracefully (Once again, good goal. And I still hope this happens. I am definitely pro-aging with beauty and grace. Have you ever since a gorgeous older woman? There is nothing more amazing to me. I saw a woman like this when I was 16. I complimented her and asked how she did it. Her answer was she never smoked, drank lots of water and used sun screen. I have been following that advise since that day.)
Visit Ireland before I die.(Has not happened yet. as I said before my great grandpa was Irish and his dream was to make it back before he died. Well it didn't happen for him, but he shared his love for the old country with me. Might sound do but I identify with my Irish ancestry. My real name is Gaelic.)
Be a great mom and wife. (This is still a work in progress. I think I am a great mom to the uppies, but that great wife stuff, I am sure I fall short.)
Don't sweat the small stuff and everything is small stuff (If I had achieved this by now .....I might have all of life's answers. LOL.)
Be kind to people.
Manage my money better. (Again, great goal, int he works, the jury is still out on who gets the point.)
Send more time with Teacher Barbie. (She is the bestest best.)
It is funny how some of what I want in life has changed, while other things will always remain the same.
So tell me, how has your life and goals changed in the last 4 years?
