If you could do anything in the world you wanted, what would it be?
quit working and travel non stop?
volunteer for a charity?
become an itinerant shopper?
learn about something that always interested you?
join the Peace Corps?
spend all day with your children or grandchildren?
0pen a restaurant or a bed & breakfast in New England?
move to Paris?
I’ve asked myself this question a number of times over the years and my answer is always similar: I’d want to do exactly what I’m doing — work–but I’d like to do it without the need to make money.
I’ve always loved my work and realize I just wouldn’t feel content or fulfilled without it. I enjoy creating and seeing the fruits of my creativity. I’ve gotten great pleasure watching FOF evolve and grow during the last two years and hearing from so many FOFs who love it. But it would be nice if I had oodles of money to spend on the site and didn’t have to worry about budgets and expenses.
I’d also love to travel more, and if I didn’t have to worry about making money, I’d go away for two weeks out of every 12. To Paris, of course. And to Cape Town, South Africa, which I’ve heard is even more beautiful than Paris, has great restaurants and supports entrepreneurial craftspeople.
I’d also volunteer for the Children’s Wish Foundation. There’s nothing sadder to me than seeing children who will lose the opportunity to hope and dream and make their dreams come true.
Hopes and Dreams. I think they’re the essence of life; where would we be without them?
P.S. What would YOU do if you could do anything in the world? I’d love to hear from you–Geri
