High Hopes..Big Dreams...

When I was a little girl, all I ever wanted to be was a doctor..oh how I thought it would be great to help and treat patients..just knowing I was making a difference in this world was a dream come true for me...well 20 some odd years later..that didn't happen...

So than I hit my teen years and wanted to become a lawyer..I remember reading about a really awful gruesome case that happened here in Ontario and I thought for sure my path was headed towards criminal law...again 10 years later it just didn't happen..

So here I am in my late 20's not a lawyer, not a doctor, but a Paralegal..I guess I came somewhat close to my dream....although I always pictured myself sitting on the bench someday..I settled for less...but somewhat happy with what I choose...

So I ask you...did you have high expectations like me when you were young..Did you reach them....What did you want to be when you were a little lad?

hey sweetie - I wanted to be a vet - I loved my dogs and thought that was all I needed - boy was I wrong - I got to college and quickly found myself taking a W in pre-med bio and pre-med chem. But I learned that maybe that just wasn't written in the stars - so now I am graduating with two degrees in something I never imagined as a little kid - but then again, maybe its all for the best, and down the road I may go for my PhD - so maybe I will be a doctor after all

sweet dreams

ps- love your smile

Is it bad that I couldn't think that far ahead as a child?
Well, I guess I wanted to be a shrink, instead I think I need one...

I swear this is the absolute complete honest truth... I wanted to be a Playboy model. I once saw this photo of a gorgeous woman in Playboy who had long straight dark hair that was long enough to cover her breasts. I really wanted to look like her. So, I told my parents I was growing my hair long to be like Crystal Gayle.

Instead I'm a librarian and I couldn't be happier career-wise.

And, amberabercrombie, there is certainly still the possibility of being a lawyer or doctor if you wanted to pursue that. On the other hand, when I was 26 I wasn't imagining I'd be a librarian. You never know what's to come.

I wanted to be a beautiful blonde like you. Then I discovered the difference between little boys and little girls ... sigh.

I'm still trying to figure out what I want to be when I grow up. I didn't even finish university until I was much older than you are, then changed fields for my masters.

"Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans." Truer words never spoken.

I WANTED TO BE A ROCK STAR. ISNT THAT ORIGINAL? HA. I WAS IN A FEW BANDS IN GEORGIA, AND I HAD AN AWESOME TIME, BUT REALIZED VERY EARLY THAT THE CHANCES WERE SLIM AND THE SACRAFICES WERE TOO GREAT. I GREW UP PRETTY POOR, WHICH MADE IT NECESSARY TO BEGIN WORKING AT A YOUNG AGE, SO EDUCATION BEYOND A HIGH SCHOOL DIPLOMA WAS OUT OF THE QUESTION. SO LIKE MANY PEOPLE, I BUSTED MY BUT AND TRIED EVERYTHING I COULD TO MAKE THE BEST OF IT. WHICH I FEEL IS BEGINNING TO PAY OFF. I OWN TWO BUSINESSES, THE FIRST WAS VERY EDUCATIONAL AS WELL AS A BUST, BUT THE SECOND HAS DONE VERY WELL. I CELEBRATED BEING A MILLIONAIRE FOR ABOUT A WEEK BEFORE UNCLE SAM TOOK HIS SLICE. I NOW GET NAUSEATED WHEN REFERRING TO HIM AS AN UNCLE, BECAUSE WE SURE AS HELL ARENT RELATED. I DID DREAM ABOUT A LIFE WITHOUT WANT, BUT I HONESTLY NEVER BELIEVED I WOULD GET THIS CLOSE. BUT YOU KNOW THAT DREAM OF PROSPERITY ALSO INCLUDED HAPPINESS. UNFORTUNATELY FOR ME, ITS SIDE KICK HAS BEEN EMOTIONAL DEVASTATION. THAT IS A WHOLE DIFFERENT CHAPTER THAT I SPARE YOU. I WILL JUST SAY ITS ANOTHER ONE OF THOSE ABRASIVE LESSONS IN LIFE. JUST WHEN YOU THINK YOU'VE GOT IT FIGURED OUT... GUESS WHAT. THATS WHEN I REMIND MYSELF THAT THERE ARE MANY PEOPLE THAT WOULD TRADE PLACES IN A HEARTBEAT, AND TELL MYSELF TO "SUCK IT UP, BUTTERCUP." OBVIOUSLY ITS NOT SOMETHING I CAN WALK AWAY FROM, SO I GUESS I WILL JUST KEEP ON PUSHING TILL I CAN FIND A COMFORTABLE STOPPING POINT, AND ENJOY. WHAT IF I WERE TO COMPARE THESE SACRAFICES I AM ENDURING NOW, WITH THE ONES I MAY HAVE EXPERIENCED TRYING TO BE A "ROCK STAR." LETS SERVE UP ANOTHER PLATE OF CONFUSION HOW BOUT IT? TOO CRAZY, THATS ENOUGH OF THAT! SERIOUSLY, YOU SHOULD BE VERY PROUD OF WHERE YOU ARE AT SUCH A YOUNG AGE, AND I HOPE YOU ARE. YOU CARRY THE TOOL OF AMBITION IN YOUR BAG OF SELF WORTH, ALSO THERE IS NO DENYING YOU ARE YOUNG AND GORGEOUS, AND WHETHER WE WANT TO ADMIT IT OR NOT, IN OUR SOCIETY, THATS AN ACE IN THE HOLE. EMBRACE WHERE YOU ARE NOW, CONTINUE TO KEEP YOUR HORIZON IN VIEW, AND GATHER ALL YOU CAN ALONG THE WAY. THINK OF THE KNOWLEDGE YOU ARE ABSORBING NOW, AND HOW IT CAN AND WILL FUEL YOUR DRIVE FORWARD. HELL, EVERYONE KNOWS THE PARALEGAL DOES ALL THE LEG WORK ANYWAY, WITH LITTLE OR NO RECOGNITION. I IMAGINE YOU WILL HAVE A FEW PARALEGALS OF YOUR OWN VERY SOON. GOOD LUCK AND THANKS FOR ASKING/LISTENING.

Well, lets examine things, you are a mom, do you provide medical aid to your kids? Do you ever act as negotiator and represent your kids legally? Seems to me, that you are a doctor, a lawyer, and a whole lot more. Kudos to the parent

I wanted to be a Teacher. Either High School or College, didn't matter just so I could teach. I thought teachers were the coolest
of cool, people with KNOWLEDGE, sharing it with country boys like me.
Instead, having worked with my father since I was old enough to walk,
I became an electrician and for years I resented it. But not anymore,
because as a Master Electrician it's my job to TEACH those who are just learning the trade so it's come full circle-plus, I make a hell
of a lot more money. What's wrong with our society when we pay a sports player millions of dollars a year but start our teachers at a
salary comparable to the minimum wage?

MARCHBROWN1 SEES THE LIGHT. MY HAT IS OFF TO YOU. THAT IS NOT JUST LIFE, IT IS LIVING. UNFORTUNATELY SOME PEOPLE (LIKE MYSELF) ARE ON A NEVER ENDING QUEST FOR THAT SENSE OF SECURITY. WHICH I REALIZE DOESNT EXIST, BUT WITH SOME THINGS, IT CAN BE A LONG ROAD BETWEEN REALIZATION AND ACCEPTANCE. WISH ME LUCK.

In all honesty, it comes down to are you happy with where you are now. As a kid, I wanted to pitch in the major leagues, in HS and college I wanted to become a psychologist, and for the last 24 yrs as a respiratory therapist and would not trade it for the world. In our lives, living life without regret is the best philosophy to live by or at least that's how I view things. Amber cool blog and thanks for stopping by mine earlier today.>>>itsallfun1957

I wanted to be a teacher, as strange as that sounds. I even considered becoming a member of the clergy...glad I got over that LOL.

The only goal I've really reached was getting my degree...even though I was in my 30's when I did so.

I guess my not-so-secret dream now is to be a writer...guess that's why I write so much here in Blogland...

From what I've read in your blogs, your profile, and the email you sent me...you have nothing to be ashamed of in your life...you are smart, energetic, attractive, loving....what more could anyone ask for?

I flew from Australia to Canada when I was 5, was the only child on the flight and was treated like a Princess. From then on, all I wanted to be was a Stewardess. That all changed when visiting my family Dr for the necessary physical exam to be accepted into the course. He asked my why I wanted a "glorified waitress job cleaning up peoples air sickness and whiny complaints about other passengers" etc.
I guess I'd never thought about that aspect of it, so instead I got married and had 2 kids and changed poopy diapers, wiped runny noses and all that goes along with that; got a dog and cleaned up after it. And the even bigger dawg I was married to at the time.
I guess being a Stewardess would have been much the same - only with better benefits!

I think, early on, I wanted to go to the stars, whether it be as an astronaut or alien abduction (I always thought they would just ask). Alternately, I have wanted to open my own theater, write, direct or teach. Right now, I am only doing a little writing, but it is possible I will be teaching soon, In the end, I simply wanted/want to communicate with others and pass on what I know and learn from them as well, as all the above endeavours involve mutual learning and understanding.

As for hopes and dreams, nothing wrong with them at all. And it is never too late for you to become a lawyer, if that is what you really want. If you think that is what you were meant for, then I do so hope you achieve it.

I wanted to become an architect when I was little.
As I got older I still wanted to become an architect.

When I graduated from High School my grades weren't quite good enough to get into the more prestigious architecture schools so I stayed local and took related courses.
After getting through a lot of Calculus, Physics, and Chem, my dad died and the classes all went hell.
While taking a Stained Glass class (yeah, makin' windows) to fulfill
an Art requirement I had an awesome prof who suggested I stay in the Art Department and get a degree in "Environmental Design".

I did, got the degree, started working in the Field and found that in almost all states you can design homes (and a lot of other stuff) without an architectural license. (SilverSageDesign dot com)

Recent family changes have forced me to relocate to California and work for someone else.
Wow! Guess what I found out...
If I let someone else pay all the bills, pay me a salary, and stamp the drawings, I can design anything.
1200 seat auditoriums, enormous churches, restaurants, shopping centers, the works.

So I'm not an architect, but I play one in real life...
Funny how things work out.

P.S. My hat goes off to MarchBrown1. I tried fly fishing for years and never could get the hang of it. Guess I'm just a 3B kind of guy (Bait, Bobber, & Beer)

Amber, you can still realize any dream if it is still a dream. When I was younger I had just envisioned myself doing something that I liked and would make my family proud. Instead I turned into a drunk for a number of years. Now I have decided on a goal of finishing school and finally getting that degree. You are still young enough if you want to go to school and get that law degree or medical degree. I figure by the time I am done with school I will be close to 45 but at least I will be able to claim I reached that goal.

Yes, I had a lot of dreams ... then I got married and became a housewife. Really scary to go looking for a job the first time at 29, but I got one beyond what I dared to hope.

Moral: dare to hope.

I wanted to be many things fighter pilot, doctor, vet, stripper, geologist, dancer race car/ motocross champ, list goes on. Probably could have been most, I often dream I am in dog fight in a jet. Did medical research chemist, grant money sucks, did get published a couple times in various journals, made a few doctors famous. They made me not want to be a doctor even though I had nack for surgery. Decided a wanted design better mouse traps went to college again and got mechanical engineering degree in my late 20's. Pretty happy with what I am doing always wish the pay was better, but money can not buy everything. It is never to late to become what you want. Being an older student you get to meet many that are much much older going to college for the first time. It is not some much what you do and when you do it, it's how will you do it. Think it through and you may make a mistake or two, but you'll figure it out.
You seem smart enough do what ever you want, It is all give and take. I worked 40 hrs a week and carried full most of the years, but there where times I had to take one or two class and just peak at it.
GOOD LUCK.

When I was younger I watched a movie called Wall Street. GREED IS GOOD! So I wanted to become a successful business man. I left school early and worked long hours in a factory. I managed to save a lot of money which enabled me to go into a partnership with my brother. We wanted to buy a McDonald's Restaurant but they said that they were only interested in a Husband & wife team. They are a FAMILY restaurant! ( This was at the time when McDonald's were really growing in Australia so they were really fussy )
We ended up buying into another franchise. We turned it around from being one of bottom stores to one of the strongest. We were working long hours and it was nearly killing us. We were making heaps of money and had payed our loan off in just over a year. The bank balance was growing and growing to a point where we could of borrowed and invested. Borrow, invest, borrow, invest is the way you can make a shit load of money! ( Important to manage your cash flow )
We decided it wasn't for us as we were extremely tired and sick of all the pressure of running our own business. Then a HUGE American franchise within the same industry moved into Australia. They had which seemed to be an unlimited amount of resources. They had a larger advertising budget and could discount to the point of making a loss.
We sold our store and managed to buy a really nice house. All new furniture and a sports car.
I live in a beautiful country and have everything I need.
Not sure whats going to happen next but I am Happy!

Its been a long journey. Sorry it took sooo long!

I wanted be a hockey player first among other things. As a kid your dreams can change from week to week. I grew up and became a male nurse and I have worked in nursing homes for 14 years and I am happy with what I do. I still play hockey for the love of the game and not for money, so I guess I have fulfilled my dreams just not in the way I originally intended

From early childhood, it was obvious I would be wrangling electricity as a career. Always wanted to work at a radio station. After electronics training and passing some serious FCC tests, I was hired as chief engineer at a local station. I loved the work and the people, but the pay was pathetic. After many years as an electrical contractor, I was finally able to get back into engineering with a local manufacturer.
The dreams and goals of youth have been met, but the reality is far different from the dream.

Anyways, i wanted to be a vet when i was younger because i had a crush on my 5th grade biology teacher..again sweet innocence.

I guess I became my Dad.

ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN, JUST NEVER KNOW. I WENT TO 27 SCHOOLS AND MOVED 48 TIMES BY THE TIME I WAS 17. JUST AN UNSTABLE DISFUNCTIONAL FAMILY SITUATION. SURVIVAL WAS MY MAIN GOAL BACK THEN. I QUIT SCHOOL WHEN I WAS 14, AND MOVED OUT SIMI ON MY OWN. GOT MARRIED WHEN I WAS 18, AND DIVORCED AFTER 22 YEARS OF LIVING WITH SOMEBODY I DID NOT LIKE.NOW DIVORCED 15 YEARS AND HAVE 2 BEAUTIFUL GRAND KIDS FORM THAT DEAL. SI IT IS ALL GOOD. I CAN DO PRETTY MUCH ANYTHING I WANT PERSONALLY AND FINANCIALLY, JUST LOOKING FOR SOMEBODY COMPATIBLE TO DO IT WITH.

I DECIDED I DIDN'T WANT TO BE LIKE MY FATHER ,AND MOVE OR RUN AWAY EVERY TIME I CAME ACROSS A PROBLEM IN LIFE, SO I MADE GROWTH LEARNING A HIGH VALUE IN MY LIFE. SO AS A RESULT OF THAT CHOICE, I HAVE OWNED 9 SUCCESSFUL BUSINESSES AND STILL OWN 4, AND DO VERY WELL. LOTS OF IT IS LUCK AND I HAVE FOUND, THE HARDER AND SMARTER I WORK THE LUCKIER I GET. ONE THING I SEEM TO ALWAYS DO, IS FIND THE BEST MODEL I CAN FIND, AND COMMIT MYSELF TO LEARN WHATEVER I NEED TO UNDERSTAND FROM THEM. IT WORKS FOR ME. SUCCESS IS NOT ABOUT FORMAL EDUCATION, ALTHOUGH IT MIGHT HELP, BUT IT IS MORE ABOUT MAKING A DECISION ABOUT YOUR TRUE VALUES AND BEING COMMITTED TO YOUR VALUES IN LIFE.GOOD LUCK.

I was going to be a pilot in the Air Force. Everything in my life was directed to that. I was in the Boy Scouts. I was around military my entire life up until that point. I got great at Math and Science, knowing that's what it would take. I went to a military college. Everything I did prepped me for that job. It never happened. They could only accept two new pilots per year. Everytime I interviewed (4 or 5 times) I always came in third.

I wanted to be President of ... my country (france)
I took highly competitive exams, graduated from prestigious school, worked in Oil industry (as someone eles did with the same job today ... ), and i'm 32 ... i'm still on the race ... i guess ... one of my relatives got a prestigious position in politics .. so i guess everything is opened for me ...
Except that i now set up a more "short term" goal ... Be in peace with myself, be proud of myself in my day-to-day life, and not only from a "carreer" point of view, but from a "personnal" point of view too. u know .. the cliche ... To do one's best ... If u start wondering that everyday ... especially when u're yelling at the car in front of you... well it start dawning at you that there is space for improvment ...
With times, your soul may darken (and this has nothing to do with the number of time u have sex in the next ... hour, day, week, month, or year .. depending on your performance level...). As with breast or lungs cancer, if u do not have an early check up, it's usually too late ... Same with your soul ... The good news is: unless leaving in Alaska, there usually is one or more (girl/boy) friend(s) to tell you the chek'up results. It's up to you to listen to it or dumper your ears ... well ... as a matter of fact ... your soul...

If i could have any job what would it be at 44 years of age? Thats an easy question. I dont fucking prefer to work at all for a living but i have to pay the bills so thats out the window .. My ideal job is a job that pays the most for the least amount of effort.. Then i can do things i enjoy most like NOT working lol. There was a career i thought i always wanted and got the opportunity to do just that for 6 years and it was the most hated job i ever have which makes me wonder about those that spend tons of cash on college to learn something they end up hating.

I don't look back. When I was young I wanted to be a doctor, made a foolish mistake in one of my A-level practical examinations, which affected my grade, which changed my life. I never disclose my work online, only that I have been every bit as as successful as I would like to have been. I still have my dreams, ambitions and goals, but see pursuing them as part of life's pleasures, rather than a desperate attempt to justify my worth or self-esteem.

You have plenty of time amber. I was once given some advice by a friend who was very successful in his own field:

"Never turn down an opportunity. You never know where it might lead. It might have completely different outcomes to what you expect, but your life will be inevitably the richer for it."

I'd say it has been some of the best advice I've ever been given and it's with pleasure I pass it on to you in such an open and public way.

At 8, I wanted to be a teacher, a suave and sophisticated person.When my elder brother joined the Indian Air Force I was 16 then and made the armed forces my life's aim.I went quite far in achieving my dream career but at the last stages both the Air Force and Army rejected me.Thereafter I have had about 8-10 jobs.Some of them, like the present one are cushy.But at the back of my mind,I often feel that whatever I am doing today is just for survival and not for pleasure.I wonder who those people are who live a life out of their hobbies.Well yes,I am a philatelist and a driver by hobby.

I remember in 8th grade my teacher asked us who thought they wanted to be President one day. I was one of two kids to raise my hand. Today I still hold that dream close to my heart. Only lately have I begun making any plans in that direction. I will give you a hint. It involves a third party in this country. I know that third parties have never done well, but one has never been created like this one. So, stay tuned the fun is just beginning!
