Whatcha Want?

I believe it is not only important to understand what you do want, but also what you don't want. 
It's a lot easier to work towards your dreams when you know what they are...

Things I couldn't care less about:
money, power, city life, keeping up with everyone else, stress, items, status, evil
Things I care a lot about:
faith, God, family, dogs, nature, being outside, America, children, animals, babies, learning, economics, agriculture, hunting, sunshine, rain, snow, nutrition, camo, Fords, pickups, guns, painting, sprinkles, sparkles, pretty high heels, boots, simplicity, freedom, happiness

Sometimes I wonder why the heck I am in college. Why am I spending so much money to learn these things when money is not my goal in life? Today I reminded myself that it is because I love to learn. I know it sounds cliche to not care about money, but truly I don't. I don't see the point in wasting the short time we have in this life doing something we don't even enjoy just to gain possessions we can't take with us. I'd rather spend my money helping others (especially children) and exploring this beautiful earth.

Sure, my dream life has never been typical, but it is still valid, and I am grateful to still have the opportunity to pursue it.

What's your dream life?
