Yes and no. Technically speaking, my career is not my passion. But my passion is writing, which I still do in my spare time. Although, I suppose if I went far enough back, I wanted to be a zoologist.
nope, I didn't, I wanted to be a manager but I became a homemaker
No I'm not living my childhood dreams. "The best laid plans of mice and men often go awry" rings true for me. Why? There are multiple contributions that have changed my path. My health, my parents separation, teenage drug use, arrests, abuse, location, and the husband and two kids I never saw coming. My life has not turned out how I once wanted it to, but I have no regrets. I wanted to be a writer, an artist, and a famous singer. Now I have boxes of my writing-short stories, poems, quotes, ideas, etc. For two years I came close to musical stardom when I was a karaoke host with local fans, and I dabble in various forms of art. But plans changed when I met my husband and got pregnant with my daughter. I can't complain though; in addition to the karaoke, I was strung out on drugs and alcohol after my ex nearly killed me. So, actually the plans changed before then, but my husband helped me out of the darkness where I was hiding and showed me a life without all the things that were destroying me. I sobered up, regained my love for art and began a family that I wouldn't trade for anything. I may not be a famous singer, but my family and friends love to hear me sing. Writing and art saves me when times get hard and will always be a part of my life. I'm not rich from my work and a non-epileptic seizure disorder makes life difficult, but I'm okay with my plans changing because I have friends and family all over that fill my life with Love. My plans changed, but so did I, over and over again. Right now, despite my health and other hardships, I am happy. I get to do the things I love with the people I love; and I don't need to be famous or wealthy to enjoy it.
No not I. John just wanted to be a simple and well paid NHL hockey player. Instead I have had to "slog" away as a research loving professor of educational psychology. A topic that soon fascinated me and has become my passion; that is, after playing old timers hockey in The Deep South of America-North. The consolation prize has not been too bad at all... I hope to continue to play hockey until I find a retirement center that has both an indoor ice rink and hockey league for old geezers like I will be...
