What did you want to be when you were older, did you want to be a astronaut, a dancer a football player or did your expectations not reach that high or did you make you dreams come true, are you a pro athlete or an astronaut. When i was younger all I ever wanted to be was a Canadian Mountie, I still wish I was one but unfortunetly I am 32 and stay on the other side of the world. But I can still dream of what could have been.

At one point or another, I had aspirations to be just about everything when I was younger. I wanted to be a novelist, and a journalist, and a news-caster. I wanted to be a famous singer and actress. I wanted to be a teacher or a social worker. The thing I wanted to be most was a doctor. Then, my family needed me to be a money-earner because of medical complications that were happening to my father towards the end of my undergraduate career. So, I finished college, and got a job with an insurance agent. I have been working there for 2 years now, and am still holding out hope to get into a health career. I am actually saving a little bit here and there to go to an LVN (vocational nursing) school, with the hopes of becoming an RN within a couple of years. I still think of what could-have-been had my family been more financially secure and I had the ability to go to medical school, but I would be happy being a nurse. I shot for the moon, and missed. But, at least I'll end up landing in the stars.

thats a really positive way tolook at. I hope your father gets better and I hope you never give up. I am sure one day you will have that medical career

Thank you so much. I'm still plugging away. Hopefully, by the end of next year, I would be able to start that nursing program that I have been looking into. I'm on my way, for sure, and goodness knows I am definitely not a quitter.

Actually I'm more aware of what I really want when i was a child I want to be a professional or some carrer where i can help other people like a lawyer or a doctor. I'm so enthusiast in everything I do but now that I'm all grown up but its seems that I really don't know where Iam who Iam and what should I be. I'm really in a lost state right now. Soul searching is really long journey for me.

I knew I was meant for motherhood since I was a child. I've always wanted to be a mom and take care of my family. Now that I have a baby it's truly a dream come true.
