Dreaming and Doing

Let's see... what questions do I have left? hmmm.....

Laura wants to know:

What is one thing you dream of achieving in life? How do you plan to achieve that dream?

I guess I have two dreams to share. The first dream is that I want to be completely debt free and own my own home. I want to be able to not worry about bill collector's calling and not stress out about my landlord deciding that he does not want to renew a lease. I want to be free of the debt slavery! And if that day ever comes, I will dance for joy!

Right now, we are just trying to make it through the next few years. Actually paying down any debt is a bonus. When the kids are all in school and I can go back to work.... then I will focus on paying off all of the bad debt that has accumulated. And then.... then we can start to really think about a home of our own.

My next big dream is to be a published author. And to make an impact on someone's life as a result of something I have written. It's not enough to get paid for writing... I want my writing to mean something to someone! And at this point, I am trying to get back into the swing of using my creativity for writing instead of fun ways to bathe the baby. Ha. I plan to start using writing prompts to start getting myself back into the habit of writing every day. With the intention of eventually writing a novel. One day.

I will be back later with more..... I need to get the boys down for naps now... wish me luck! LOL

All over the novel thing myself. If I could just find the time...* sighs * Someday, we'll both be published, rich and famous divas. We'll lounge with Chelle at some pool and be waited on hand and foot by beautiful bodied men and women who have ALL read our books and been changed by them. And then we wake up...;)

I am with you on the totaly debt free issue. House paid for but many credit cards not! Keep on writing. Some is better than not at all. Keep your skills honed, you never know when you will be ready to write that novel. Love and hugs.. Hope the boys go to sleep for you.

Debt free would totally rock! We were out for dinner on the weekend with friends and they casually mentioned something about their home being paid off this summer. I . WAS. FLOORED. JAW. HIT. THE. FREAKING. FLOOR. That just doesn't seem attainable in the near future - it's in the future - just not the near future.

I love to read anything and everything and would love to write but I don't have the talent. Believe me, I've tried and believe me when I say that I suck ass.

I dream of the day that we are debt free. I'm working on it but it is not a fast journey.

Good luck! You can do it.
