What Do You Want to Do When You Grow Up?

It's a tough question to answer sometimes, isn't it?

Actually to be honest, it really isn't all that hard for me to answer. Unfortunately it's just going to be hard for me to do what I want to do. I'm afraid that it might not be a path that people think I should take. And I know, I know - don't think about it right? Well easier said than done.

Then there's the possibility of failing. I'm not a big risk taker and I don't like having the potential to fail, but if I don't take a chance then I may never be able to do what I really want.

Everyone is in a big rush for me to get another job because it's what you are suppose to do. Part of me would like to think about what I want though first before I just jump into the next thing that I might end up hating just as much. I have a feeling that this is the time for me to do some experimenting and figure out if what I think I want to do is really right for me. It will be a way to ease my way into the risk.

I have a lot to think about. At least it is potentially exciting stuff! In the meantime I will be doing my best not to become a lazy bum.


  1. Good luck!!

    A quote I love:
    You must take big risks to get big rewards!

  2. Same boat… I totally agree with you. I didn’t even understand or fully take hold of my true gifts and talents until two years ago. Give me time please… I’ll end up figuring it out! :)

  3. I think I'm in the right field but then there are some days I want to open up a yoga studio combined with a coffee shop combined with a flower shop. It's all my favorite things in one place!

  4. Take your time, I'm 52 and haven't figured it out yet.

    I enjoy your blog!


Comments make my day! Go ahead...get to typing. I want to hear from you.
