Am I Really Satisified With My Life
Am I really satisified with my life? How many are really satisified with their life? I believe that many of us are contented I honestly don't know if we are completely satisified. When I was a little girl there were so many things I wanted to be, a mother, a fireman , a doctor, a singer, a nun. Believe it or not I honestly did want to be a nun and I wasn't even Catholic. I was 12 years old and I thought that become a nun would be the answer to my life, I had attended church and believed in God but I wanted to be dedicated. Well that is when I was 12 and I now realize that it takes someone quite special to become a nun, and I am not , nor would I ever be it. At 16 I wanted to be a singer, I joined the school choir and placed all of my energy on practice , being an Alto I wanted to be a Soprano , boy did I stink at that when I tried to hit the high note, so I accepted that I was an Alto and being a singer isn't what I was intended to be. I stuck with my piano lessons and became quite good at touching those ivory keys and being able to move the pedals when I was supposed to. I found my niche' and love for music , but the piano was and is my voice and I simply do not try to hit a high note when I do sing. At 18 I decided I wanted to become a nurse, I mean it was the next closest thing to becoming a doctor wasn't it? Many friends in school would pass out from blood, and our first autopsy someone hit the floor. Thank God for smelling salt, but why would they want to be a nurse I thought if they can't even see an autopsy being performed. We gave her a nice whiff of smelling salt and low and behold she raised from the dead. Needless to say she did end up dropping out the very next term. Was she satisified? Is that what she wanted to do?
We all make choices right or wrong, it could be financial, it could be that we are sick and tired of school altogether. Satisfaction to me is not measured in what we become or what we do, it is measured in the enjoyment of what we recieve when we are doing it. To answer the question am I satisified? The answer to that question is no, I am still determined to become a doctor even though being a nurse gives me enjoyment. I want to find cures for HIV , Diabetes, and rare types of Cancers. My satisfaction is when I can be all that I can be without excuses and doubts that it can not be done.
Just like Mick Jagger sang "I can't get no satisfaction!" Can anyone say that they are completely satisfied with what life as given them?
