When you were little did you imagine you'd ever be where you are now?

When I was a kid I imagined that I would be the president and that I would have a best friend called Mo who could talk to angels... So I don't quite have that.. but I didn't imagine being happy and I am :). So how about all of you guys?

  • That's so cute. No, when I was a kid I didn't really think about the future. I was a live-in-the-moment kinda gal. I really couldn't even fathom the possibility that I would someday live to be 16, much less 30.

  • I dreamed of being a ballerina, or an artist, or later..............even a teacher. I ended up being a nurse. Lol. That was no where in my childhood dreams, I can promise you that! Lol. But I do love it, even so.

  • Nope. I imagined that I would be a teacher living in Africa helping the kids that wouldnt have an education otherwise. I am still getting my degree, only a few more classes. I am happily married and the very proud mommy of an amazing little boy. this is way better (IMO) than what i could have ever imagined!

  • No. I wanted to be a vet. As an adult, I am far too emotional. I am a counselor now.

  • My Mom died when I was 10 and I hated my Step-Monster. Life was VERY difficult so YES.......I never thought I'd be where I am today. Looking back, I'm glad to have been able to get all the "crap" out of the way so I could finally enjoy my happy life as an adult!

  • I came from a messed up home...I never thought I'd be so normal. The good kind of normal, I have a happy healthy family. What more could anyone want.

  • Busybee, It does make you appriciate the little things. I don't know anyone happier than me and they all came from good homes with no problems.
