But there are a lot of things I'd like to be proud of like some of my happy adventures. One of them is choosing my career path. I could've gone corporate and head for the steady safe-net pay check. But I went to doing something I love which is photography because I'd rather be shooting with an irregular cash flow than not being able to respond to my true calling. And I guess I want to look at my daughter's eyes and tell her without batting an eyelash, that I followed THE dream, that I dared to tread rocky grounds and take this wonderful adventure so she would, too follow her own bliss and have a life filled with wonder and mystery. And I guess at the back of my head, I want to let people know that following dreams can be financially, physically and emotionally feasible. I want to inspire. And for selfish reasons, I want to sleep well at night.
- A cafe that I will call Cafe Issa. Coffee and baked goods.yum! I'm in a baking frenzy these days.
- A book on creativity or something else. But a book!
- A more active Kids Need to Read program to spread some love and literacy around.
I'm not sure if I should put timetables this early. I will, probably soon. But for now, let me have some time to accept and swallow that yes, I'm 34. And that yes, there will be more adventures ahead.
