What did you want to be when you grew up? Did you accomplish that dream? Or are you still waiting to grow up ?? I know some of us feel we have yet to grow up – me included some days!!
When I was a young girl, I wanted to be a teacher. In high school, I aspired to be a lawyer. I think I would have been a good lawyer if I had pursued that, but after working for lawyers for 30 years, I no longer care to ever pursue that long ago dream!!
Some of us have big dreams and some of us just want to have a career and make enough money to buy a house, have a family and retire one day.
As I have approached my grown up years (I would say that would be about 60 the rate I am going haha), I think I finally have an idea of what I want to be. While I do love teaching overseas, and I hope to pursue it again in a couple of years, there is a desire to pursue writing full time. The venue for my writing is still something I am deciding, but I know that if I pursue this and research it like I did with the teaching, I will be successful. It’s not just research and patience that brings success, it is also attitude. I have a positive and strong attitude and I know I can do it.
So I ask the question again – what do you want to be when you grow up? Are you happy with what you ended up doing in your life?
