Where do I Want to be in 10 Years

I remember having so many dreams as a child for what I wanted my life to be.  None of those dreams followed me into adulthood.  It sounds like that is sad but to me it truly isn't.  I think our dreams change and age with us.  I believe that we are not meant to have one dream or one purpose.  So when someone asks where do I want to be in 10 years the possibilities are endless.
 
In 10 years, E will be 28, J will be 26 and I will almost 48.  I imagine my life will be similar to what it is now- married to the love of my life, two out of this world amazing kids making their mark on life, and trying to make my own mark.  I don't expect any changes within my family, but I do expect changes within me.  My dreams have not ended, but they have altered.

I dreamed of a career, being a mom, and being a wife.  These are the things that are part of me, but they do not define me.  My goal is to make a difference to someone or more than one someone.  I want to teach others to learn from my mistakes, but also to embrace their own mistakes.  I want to work to be the voice of reason when someone is struggling with a decision large or small.  I want to be the sounding board for anyone that needs one.  I only hope it won't take me the 10 years to be that person. 

Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
