Five years ago at this time of night I would have been on my way to the local piano bar for long necks and music with my sorority sisters. Dancing on the stage and screaming the lyrics of Journey was just a given. I was young, free and full of dreams. We all were.
These amazing women are all young professionals. One has moved to New York City and works for a prominent fashion designer (think Devil Wears Prada.) Another is pursuing her dream of acting in Los Angeles. Several are teachers, specifically serving in low income communities or through programs like Teach For America. I am so proud of each of them but I long for that connection again.
I willing chose to become a wife and young mother. I willing chose to stop working at a magazine and stay at home to raise my son. I have cultivated new dreams for myself. Not better, not worse, just different.
My hopes and dreams? Revolve around these two:
