I’m in my 40’s, but sometimes I feel like I’m still working on being a grown-up.
I have dreams that I have yet to achieve that I am still not willing to give up on, despite being “middle-aged”.
I am pursuing my dreams of being an entrepreneur, but my big dream has always been to sing for money, even if it’s just being a back-up singer. I love to harmonize, so as long as I got to sing my heart out, I wouldn’t mind being in the background.
I would like to be able to successfully play my guitar and use it to write music, flawlessly. I’m still learning, but I can’t get my fingers to wrap themselves around certain chords, that leads to discouragement and that means that my guitar sits on the stand more than it sits in my lap.
I don’t care about being rich, but I wouldn’t mind making more money. But, I guess that’s where my entrepreneurship comes in. In this economy, I can’t rely on my employer to make that happen and while my kids are still being educated at home, I don’t imagine that I will be moving to a new (less flexible) job, so I can only rely on my own steam and my own business to make that happen.
I want to write a book, some day. I don’t know if it will be a book of poetry or a novel, or even a personal memoir, but I do intend to write something of substance while I still can.
I’m pretty sure there is a dream or two more out there that has yet to occur to me. I just hope that whatever I achieve, it’s something to be proud of, for myself and my family.
