Flashback Friday Prompt: What did you want to be when you grew up? Why did you want to be that, and did you do it? Did you consistently plan to be whatever it was, or did you change your mind often? Did you do anything like volunteering or interning to give you a taste of your future occupation/role? Were you as happy/satisfied with what you became as you thought you would be? What surprised you? Would you choose it again? Do you still want to be something else - either in addition to or instead of?
I always wanted to be a mother. I don't know why except that's what my mom was and that's what I wanted to be. I guess I just thought that's what you were supposed to be. Then when I got a little older (like high school age) I never seemed to be able to pick out a career that I wanted. So since I couldn't think of a particular career to go to college for I got a job instead. 34 years later I'm still working at the same place (although I've changed positions) and I'm still trying to figure out what I want to be when I grow up! lol
I am happy with being a mother and I like my job too, but I think now I'm really just waiting to retire and enjoy some traveling with my hubby. Of course this is still a few years away.
