30 Days of Truth - Day FIVE: Something I hope to do in my life

I am having a hard time with this one.  Not because I can't think of things that I would like to do (sail the Mediterranean Sea, walk the Academy Awards Red Carpet, visit the Pyramids of Giza, star in my own hit sitcom), but because I have done some amazing things in my life already.  I really have had and do have a wonderful life.

I love that he is "kissing" her head! And yes, we were this close!

I have traveled to some amazing places and had incredible experiences.  I have seen the wildebeests in the Serengeti, watched lions mate in Ngorongoro Crater, eaten fresh fish from the fishermen on Zanzibar, tasted 'real' tequila on the Mayan Riviera, witnessed a mama humpback whale nursing her calf in the waters off Maui and zip-lined through a rain forest on St. Lucia.

I moved out of my parents house at 18 and put myself through school, I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Medical Laboratory Science (you may not be able to tell, but I am a total lab geek!).  I have had major surgery three times in my life and have metal hips (I am SO not traveling to the US anytime soon!!).  I've worked in retail and in the health care world and eventually found myself in a fabulous career as a pharmaceutical sales representative.

I met and married the man of my dreams.  It took me a while and I had to try on a lot of 'shoes' before I found the one that fits, but it was worth all the heartache to find this one PERFECT fit!  We had the most perfect wedding EVER, and we work hard everyday to have a healthy marriage that will last as long as we do.

I have felt the incredible joy and thrill (and accompanying terror) of growing not just one but two human beings in my body.  I have seen what my body was meant to do and have been humbled by the awesomeness of giving birth to these two amazing creatures.  I have nourished them with my body, nurtured them with my heart and soul and get to have the immense privilege of watching them everyday growing into even more amazing individuals.

I am my own Boss!!  How great is that (OK, well sometimes it is not so great), but I am master of my own destiny, my successes and my failures.  I love being an entrepreneur and the highs and the lows that that brings.  One of my favourite books is Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged and it encompasses a lot of my philosophies in business and that you get what you put in to it.  I also firmly believe that nothing happens in this world until someone sells you something (think about that for a minute....). And so I own a retail business dedicated to what I love the most - BABIES!!

So what more do I hope to do in this life?  I hope to be around long enough to see my kids grow up and start their own adult lives.  I hope to be a grandma one day.  I hope to take a trip with my husband somewhere REALLY exotic and do things that are way out of the realm of our day-to-day lives.  I hope to be wildly successful at whatever I am doing (but who doesn't right?) and I hope that my writing continues to improve and that perhaps this blog is a new door to even more exciting things for me.

And I really hope that you all are enjoying all of this!!

Muah, Natasha~
