I find myself in need of a little inspiration these days. I have a couple new ventures I am thinking about, but I just don't have the guts to go with it. I keep making excuses as to why they won't work or that it would just cost "too much money" and what if I didn't make anything out of it. Yet here we are spending all this time and money on our daughter's dream, all the time telling her that if nothing ever comes of it at least she had the experience. Funny how we tell our kids to live the dream and that they can be whatever they want to be and yet when it comes to us, we always make excuses. What am I teaching my daughter?
In a couple months I turned 29 and though I've joked and said I'll never turn 30, (I'm going to be 20-10 next year!) that harsh reality is facing me. I know 30 is young, that's not my point. I just wanted to be something by the time I was 30. I wanted to make a difference in this world...outside of my hometown. At 30 years old, my mother had already survived open heart surgery and almost dying in labor with her first child. She went through countless other surgeries before dying 11 days after my 10th birthday. At 30 my father had already survived the 2nd world war. (He was 65 when I was born and 86 when he died the day before my 21st birthday.) At 30, what will I say I've done?
What have you done?
