Tag Archives: what do you want to be

What did you want to be when you grew up?

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?
