A friend asked me last night, "if money were no object, what would be your dream job?"
Have you pondered this question lately? I mean, as an adult with an established life?
I think the last time I spent thinking about this question was when I was in college trying to decide my major. (By the way, I decided my major based on foreign language requirements. GREAT thinking on my part) But, with her question, that's all I've been able to think about this morning.
When I was young, I wanted to be a Broadway singer. I just knew it was going to happen. I think I believed this well into college. I sincerely thought I could support myself through music. But, obviously that didn't happen. Part of it was lack of effort, part having a family, part getting comfortable in the secure life I was building.
So, it's been a long while since I've really pondered this. What do I want to be when I grow up?
I think I'd like to make a difference somewhere. That's all I've got.
Oh, I'd love to work with animals, or the elderly.
I'd love to work with Project Innocence.
I'd also love to open a bar with Steven and live above it. We would have a cozy little place and enjoy all our regulars.
I'd also love to work as a bank teller again, I loved that job. Balance at the end of the day, and that's it. Nice and neat.
Dog walker? Forensic psychologist? Author?
Bump on a log?
I'm 48 years old and still trying to figure out my niche in the world.
If money were no object, what would YOU be doing?
