When I was child I wanted to be a wife and mother. Now I am a wife and mother. I will be 38 years old tomorrow and I still haven't decided what I want to be when I grow up! =)

Really? I've always relished the idea of writing my own books too and actually thought about putting them out as e-books.

When I was a child, i remember acting infront of the television, wearing my mom's high heeled shoes...I love acting. I wanted to become an actress. I wanted to become a model. I wanted to see myself as a reigning beauty queen. I love fashion shows. But as I reached my teen life, I simply wanted to travel around the world and wishes to be a flight stewardess. That didn't materialize though because I married early. Everything has changed. Right now, I am a mother of 3...doing all my best to be a great wife and mother...All my dreams are just laid off then...Its nice to reminisce all your past dreams. And it would be nice also if it does happen...

I just knew I wanted to work for myself. Most my relatives had their own business. That's what I am doing now, not making a whole lot yet but I know I can do it.

I did not have any childhood ambition. It may sound strange but its true ! Even now, as I'm doing graduation in Computer Engg., I'm not sure if this is what I want to do !!!
