I went through a deep cleaning & organizing of my hoards of keepsakes a few months back. It was a pregnancy induced nesting thing I suppose. We're talking bins & bags & boxes of notes, pictures, gifts, & THINGIES from the last 3 or so decades. I'm ever so proud of myself for letting go of much of it! Now I'm just down to about 3 big ol' bins of keepsakes. ;)
Anyway. When I was 16 I enrolled in a high school for teen parents as I was pregnant with my daughter. They had us fill out this cheese ball, corny workbook during one of my years there. The workbook's called "Choices: A Teen Woman's Journal for Self-Awareness and Personal Planning". Ooo la la. So I kept it all these years. It's so fun to read now.
Here's an excerpt, I wrote this when I was 17. The book asks "What do I want out life for myself?" and here was my answer, word for word: "I want to be a hippy. I want a loving hubby, many kids, lots of animals & a wonderful home in the country."
Haha! My goals haven't changed much since then have they!
Another favorite of mine is this goofy page where the book asks you to circle all the adjectives that describe what you want in your future husband. At the bottom is a line marked "other" where you can add an adjective yourself. So I circled stuff like good looks, intelligent, similar goals, & a good provider (all of which my husband has/is), & under "other" I wrote "long hair". Haha! My husband has hair to his butt. Gorgeous hair.
I just love it when my dreams come true!
