What I'm thinking about today

Took a hike with a friend today (5 miles of horrific hills but that is beside the point) and between huffing and puffing we had a conversation about finding purpose in life.  Not religious "what on earth am I here for" kind of purpose but rather "now that my kids are in school full time and don't depend on me 23 hours a day anymore" kind of purpose.

I've already picked my major in college.  I already had a "career".  But I spent the last 8 years of my life supporting two little munchkins who needed my undivided attention.  Now, they shun my undivided attention which I thought would be a great thing but is, I have to admit, a little bit sad but has opened up a little window of time in my life that I would like to fill doing something more fulfilling than vacuuming. 

Dream job - I would like to Blog.  Blog, write books, public speak - have more followers than Ashton Kutcher.  Be faithful to my peeps and provide information that people can't live without.

But will I be good enough?  Will I find my voice? Will they like me - really like me? 

The quote I wrote about in my college application essay ( I can't believe I remember this) is by Shedd - " A ship in a harbor is safe, but that is not what ships are built for".  So - off to sea for me.  Off to sea.
