Welcome to week 16 of the #MFRWauthor blog hop. We've covered an array of topics over the last few weeks, with many more to come. This week is all about our biggest dreams.Since these topics cover a mix of writing related things and personal, I figured this topic was one that could be both.
So for now, my big dream, career wise is much smaller. My dream is to reach a point in my career where I make a decent monthly income from my books. My husband hopes I will make enough so he can retire early LOL but that goes back to the first thing I mentioned. If the stars should align and I get there, great! But I'm way more practical. I enjoy writing and I would love to have a solid fan base at some point. Doesn't have to be big, but just people that I know are out there waiting and wanting the next book I produce. In turn I'll make enough to earn a decent amount of money from doing what I love. See not too much to hope for right?
On a personal level, my biggest dream is in relation to my children. Our kids are the key to the future. My dream for my own is for them to grow up being productive members of society. I want them to remain in good health and lead happy lives, whatever that means for them.
My daughter will be graduating college in less than a month. She's about the enter the 'real' world and while her father and I have done all we can to prepare her for it, she's still terrified. It's part of life and at some point we have to let go and let them find their way. As a parent that is easier said than done, but it's what I have to do. We can only set them up for so much and the rest is up to them.
My oldest son will be heading into high school next year. A new and exciting time in life. He had to pick his classes a little while back, and while his father and I listened to him talk things through, we sat back and let him weigh his options on which electives would work best for him. It's a small thing, but it shows he does have logical decision making skills which are key in life.
My youngest two are a ways off from needing to make any major life decisions. Well nearly, my 9 yr. old has decided he wants to be a SWAT officer. Not sure if that'll stick as he gets older, but if it does, I hope he can get there. The youngest wants to be a dragon, a little harder to achieve, but there's always cos play right? LOL
No matter what, my biggest dream is for them to reach theirs.
So what are some of your hopes and dreams? Be sure to check out the other authors in the hop to find out theirs.
