I don't think I ever imagined doing what I do except in the present. I've thought of fantasies but never really thought they were going to happen only that I wish they would happen.
66 years ago when I was 13 I remember walking in town with my leather jacket. If you wear a leather jacket—wow—you be something!
Passing by the store windows I’d admire my reflection:
“How about that leather jacket?”
Now what? Do I miss it? Do I label it the good old days? I never thought I would get old. My elder peers would say emphatically: don’t get old!”
As if I can prevent it, but no—now I’m saying that to others. It wasn’t until I’m 29 that I remembered my Grand Creator in the days of my still young manhood. That was before now—the calamitous days—the years that have arrived when you will hear me say:
“I have no delight in them.” (Ecclesiastes 12:1)
I've imagined owning my own home by now, but I don't as of yet.
I never thought I'd be living in the mountains by myself and I sure didn't think I'd live in this state!
Ask yourself these questions if to help yourself determine whether you're living the life that you want or not. Do I like my job? Is everything I do just a means to an end? Do I really enjoy being married to my spouse? (this one might be harder... read more
Your question is far more intense and provocative than it first appears. I have sat at the keepboard for several minutes trying to answer it. Three times, I have erased and attempted a new though!
Even as a young girl, I wanted to be a wife, a mother, to travel, to cook and to write. All of these things I have done........but I was SO unprepared for the timing of the details. Life doesn't always adhere to schedules and good timing.
My Grandmother once told me, that it was a terrible thing to have your children live far away from you. At the time, I thought her to be a sentimental old lady...........I never expected to feel what she felt~~ and now, I do.
I expected to have far more control over the changes.
there is a saying that you never know taste of the next chocolate in box. the chocolate just like our life, only you have experienced it, or else we cannot have a deeply feelings and impression for it. so, almost everyday life of mine is rather different from my expect and imagination.
My life is what I thought it was going to be as a big picture, but it's the minor details that are very different. I expected to be done with college and doing my career now instead of having 4 kids and working on it now. I never imangined myself marring the man I did or actually having that many kids. It's not a bad change just was a little unexpected.
If "imagined" means, How is my life is different than what I "expected", well NO!
My life turned out much richer and more full of love than I thought I would ever have for my future. As a lose-cannon foster kid, I really didn't think I'd have so much of everything: joy, love, financial stability, good marriage, happy children, world travels....
BUT, as that foster kid once did a whole lotta dreaming,
If "imagined" means, How is my life is different than what I "dreamed", well, YES!
I've had travels all over the world and know how fortunate I am to be living a "dreamed" of life. I feel very fortunate!
I never thought I would have children and I had two--the greatest pleasure of my life. And I think I am surprised I lived this long. My dad as 49 when he died, and my mom 53--so I outlived them my by a few years.

I have a leather jacket website, and I rank very well for many of the key words. So you would think I get lots of traffic, but that is not the case.So I'm starting to wonder if buying leather jackets online is popular or not? Not many seem to be searching for them by typing the key words in...

What is a good price for a women's leather jacket?Thinking black or brown, and that comes below the waist a little, but not too long. What is a good price range, even on sale? Wondering especially about the really soft leather that tends to cost more.

A long time ago I use to sell leather jackets and leather purses that I airbrushed custom designs on. Frankly it was a lot of work, and it was a pain to do that to a jacket, only to have it returned because it did not fit!! However I was thinking about making designs on leather jackets that were...
