Being What You Might Have Been

"It's never too late to be what you might have been." – George Eliot

What a great quote, right? And oh so true! Even though things may get put on hold for awhile or circumstances may change, that doesn't mean we can't still reach our potential or accomplish our goals. I have always wanted to be a writer and even though I had several years where I felt uninspired and like I could never do it again...I am! I write this blog and I'm also writing guest posts and articles for websites and journals. Andddd I'm going to be in a book sometime in the future! (I'll definitely post more about it once more information is available.) I don't write because I want to make tons of money or because I want to be famous or any other silly reason like that. I write for a number of other reasons: It's something I enjoy doing. I can share my thoughts and opinions with others and maybe even help them out. My family and friends like reading it. I feel like I'm pretty decent at it. It's what I want to do!
So think back....what have you always wanted to do? What is your passion? Now, how can you accomplish that? Don't think in terms of doing it all right now - it's a process. Just think of how you can accomplish it sometime in your future, be it tomorrow or a year from now. And don't worry if it's something silly - if it's what you want to do, go for it! How will you take some steps today to help yourself be what you might have been can be? Feel free to share in the comments! :)

  1. I love this post! I agree with you! I still would love to become a CSI, but honestly I don't want to be a cop & I'd have to be a cop before I could get into CSI..so yeah errr. I'll just stick to my dreams of starting my own clothing line!!

  2. I feel the same way about writing. I worked for an ad agency once and my boss said "never stop writing!" Blogging makes this easy! An opportunity to hone your craft and have your voice heard (if anyone cares to listen!)
    I wanted to be a model (I modeled a little) but my 5'5" stature was limiting back then and well, 20+ lbs later...3 kids later...I do have a portfolio though, I knew there would be a day when I would look back and say "look how young I was!" Sigh, that's today! ;)

  3. Well hey, that is a great idea too! Fashion is awesome! I think CSI stuff is really interesting but I don't think I could ever be a cop either.
