Dreams for Children, from inspire2journal
Hi all! This is my first post to inspire2journal, I love the idea behind this community!

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!

He still wants to continue, huh...

So, does that mean you'll be staying in Korea even after you strike it rich (which I'm expecting to happen any day now). :)

Re: He still wants to continue, huh...

I think if it happened tomorrow, yeah, we'd go back to LA. Beyond that, I actually have no clue! Seriously, I'm starting to be happy about this move. If we hadn't done it, I wouldn't be typing this reply from a hotel room in Downtown Toyko, you know? Just the travel opportunities are making it seem like a good move.

Although, if we were filthy rich, we could move back to LA and still travel...so in the end, who knows! LOL

It's so awesome your kids are getting so much cultural exposure. It will only help to serve them well in the future!
