Thoughts on Thursday

While browsing this morning, I stumbled across this question?

Wouldn't it be nice if whenever we messed up our life, we could simply press Ctrl Alt Delete and start all over?

I have found myself saying "shoulda, coulda, woulda" more than once lately. Don't get me wrong - I don't really consider my life "messed up". I LOVE being a stay-at-home mom and a wife that is still completely in love with her husband. I would never change anything about the outcome of my family life. And I pray I never have to go back to and 8 to 5 job. However, I wish I had chosen a different major in college. I think I chose something that came pretty easy to me and was very interesting; however, I didn't truly have a passion for psychology/criminology. It intrigued me nonetheless and I think I mistook that intrigue for passion. If I'd only known then what I know now.

Fast forward several years, a husband and 2 kids later.....

I am discovering a passion for photography and even dabbling in a little graphic design for which I am also finding myself head over heals. I also love to cook. To sum it all up, I should have chosen something in the way of creativity. Yet, my personal creativity did not surface until my late 20's, early 30's. Go figure. And I'm still paying student loans for that psychology/criminology major. Boo.

It's never too late, right?!?! I'm thinking seriously about taking a few classes once my kids are in school. And let's face it - that time comes much sooner than any mother is ready for it. So for now, my focus will be on my children, my family and I'll dabble in my new passions. Then we'll see if this old dog can learn a few new tricks.

    Followed you from ParentsConnect blogger thread. I SO know what you mean here! I'm thinking of going back to school as well, but I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up! "Mommy" is the only title I have a passion for, but being paid in $ helps!
