40ish and beyond... 40ish and beyond...

is there anything you wish to do during your life that is contrary to your current situation?

Posted by   + Show Post

do you have any dreams that seem unattainable or contrary to your current situation... but that would be perfectly manageable if you had made different choices?  (hence, dont say a famous rock star if you can not carry a tune)


What do you see as your main obstacle?

 I think if I had gone to college to be a teacher and not what I did do that certain things today would not be the way they are with my life.

Seriously???? Keep on drinking the Kool-Aid.....

Quoting Ms.KitKat:

It was a comment made by Pres. Obama that was cut / edited to serve the politcial agenda of the right wing, conservative republicans (oops- that was redundant). They have a funny way of taking comments out of context and then cutting/editing. Apparently she fell for it. sheep.

Quoting sahlady:

Im sorry for not understanding you...  was that a political commentary on your part or is there an actual legal reason that you can not profit from your business because of who built the road out side your home.  And if the business profits the money will literally not get to your bank account?

Quoting sunflowers12:

No dear according to Mr, oboma he made statements that no one has made their own business that there created by him and others!!! Yes this why its an obstacle...

I must have missed what ever Obama comment you are referring to.

If the economy wasn't so scary we would buy the local pizza joint that is for sale and make a go of it. The loan we would have to get would be like a second house payment and that just scares the you know what out of me.

that sounds SO exciting. Is it a definite no, or are you still thinking about it?  I love the idea!

I guess I was thinking more forward than backward - what do you want to do today that seems contrary to where you are in life.  What do you want to do, and what do you see as the biggest obstacle?

Yeah, it is a definite no, if it failed or just fizzled instead of sizzled, we would be soooo in debt. We have just gotten ourselves out of most of our debt, we don't want to fall back into it.

Yes I have a dream to complete my bachelors degree in criminal justice.  If I had focussed on finishing instead of helping my Adult youngest child, I would be done by now.  Money is stopping me.  I need to find a decent job and there is a job fair on the 29th this month.
