It's your work-from-home mommy here. I'm taking a break from reading up on environmental sustainability for work.
As I take a deep breath, bleary eyed from staring at a computer screen all day, I wanted to tell you that even if you still want to be a princess-fairy-ballerina when you grow up, but find yourself instead tap-tap-tapping away on your computer keyboard that it's okay.
Some of the stuff that you never imagined would be so integral to making you happy in daily life like being a mommy, being a wife, being a friend would be super tough to accomplish if indeed you were a princess-fairy-ballerina. Plus, what would have to talk about with your children, your spouse and your friends if not your dashed dreams of being a princess-fairy-ballerina.
So I am not writing amazing essays for Newsweek that will one day be collected into a book of stories. (Miss you, Nora Ephron!) and I am good with that. Well most of the time, I am good with that and when I am not...I have this blog.
I am also good with spending time dreaming big ideas and discussing them with friends and family. In fact, I don't see it as not following your dreams, I see it more as an ever evolving set of dreams.
I am so very lucky that I get to live this life.
