Well, I want my children to live their life with no regrets. So far, I have been able to do that and it is quite satisfying. Of course, there are things that I wish I had done differently or had happened differently, but nothing so extreme to call a regret in my life.
Another thing I want them to acquire is a sense of adventure. I want them to love to travel, to look at changes in their lives as adventures. I am a creature of habit, so when our family had to move from Los Angeles to South Korea recently, I did not take it very well at all. My 5-year-old daughter, however, took it extremely well. She was excited to go to a new school to meet new friends and wants to learn Korean very badly. I'm so proud of her for that and I hope that she never loses that enthusiasm for adventure.
The other thing that I want for them is a sense of fulfillment and accomplishment. My husband has a job that he loves to go to everyday. And he says that even if we were filthy rich, he would still want to continue at this job. Not many people have that and I want my children to find that niche in their lives that brings them that sense of satifaction and fulfillment everyday, whether it is a hobby or a job. I have yet to find it - other than raising my children, of course!
What I'm feeling: inspired
