Do you ever look back and wounder how you go so distracted that you didn't follow your lifes dreams. I remember when I was young. My dreams was to owns a Horse Ranch. I love horses and have always thought they were the most beautiful Animul I have ever seen. So Spiritual and So Magical looking with the curved neck and long flowing main. I dreamed of plenty of land that would allow them to run. But, my life jumped down a completly different path. Now I am a graphic designer, not even making ends meat, living in a trailer and wishing I had stayed of the path, that would have taking me to a confortable life. If you could do over, and follow your dreams would you? I would, I would have stayed in college, and gotten my degree in Drafting. And would have made a great life for myself, before I had ever going married.

Yes and no, I really love the life I have now. I wouldn't have that if i had changed one thing. I got out of high school, went into the Marine Corps, got married ahd kids...blah blah blah. If I took just one step out I do not know where I would be. If I could guarentee that I would have the children I have now...Yes I would have gone on to college and finished medical school. Big Lofty dreams. I have learned that through writing, I can be anyone i want to be...doctor, nurse, firefighter...Right now, my dream is to pen a book, and get it published. I know I can get it done. Who is to say you can't get your Horse Ranch tonnie02? Just because you are married doesn't mean your dreams have to end. Good luck-search deep. You might find a way to do it.

Thanks for the comment, but at my age, I think that is a little far gone. I wouldn't have change the two beautiful girls I have. But I do see alot in my life I would have change. I am glad you have the life you want. And not all are that luck. And as far as publishing a book. I know a real good printing company that prints. And if I can remember where I found these other sits at. I will let you know. I have come across a site that is for publishing. Stay in touch tonniek02

I would've wanted to go to the allergist earlier, and maybe I could've done better in college, gone for a different degree, made more money. But I don't think I would've married or had kids, because I had never planned on them and have successfully avoided them so far - and since I'm almost 55, I think I've been successful on that count!

I had so many dreams when I was young and I followed the fun ones. I never did the obvious ones that would make me lots of money. It's a good idea to go back and do the ones that I never did do. Cheers!!
