How many of you here have become what you wanted to become when you were a kid?
Not me, I wanted to become a mom to ten kids just like my mom. Boy, did I smarten up! LOL! j/k I would still love to have ten kids if I could afford them.
I certainly haven't. When I was a kid, I wanted first to be a lawyer and then a little later to become a doctor. I became neither after I grew up. I quickly discovered in college that I didn't have the smarts or aptitude to become a doctor. Instead, I became a translator for the federal government and am presently teaching English as a Foreign and Second Language in my retirement.
This is a great question. When I was a kid, I had a whole list of things I wanted to become...and oddly enough, I have managed to become many of them over the years! I wanted to become a model, and I did. I wanted to be in the movies, and I was. I wanted to be a cowgirl and I was, albeit briefly. I have had many jobs in my time, and most were pretty interesting, so although I didn't achieve all of my childhood dreams, I am happy with the ones I did achieve!
As a kid I wanted to be soooooooo many different things! Wouldn't be possible to do them all. I wanted to be a teacher (been there, done that, got the headache!). I also wanted to be a nun and run an orphanage somewhere (then I realized you don't have to be a nun to run an orphanage), also wanted to be a wife/mother, a writer, an entrepreneur, a farmer, a lawyer, a chef, and to own a Christmas tree farm!
