    Is what you are doing what you thought you would do when you grew up?

    How is it working for you?

    Yes!  I thought I would be a writer when I grew up, and here I am, a writer.  I am happy with what I am, although sometimes I wish for a more simple fate.  Anyways, I am lucky to be a writer because many people would wish that they could be.  Always be proud of what you are.

      I am with you...i feel the more open we can be the chances are greatly improved to experience better relationships. And this means to me more fun comfort and joy to be shared and had for everyone. Now that's got to be a good thing, yes?

    Mine was the simple way, my Sweet Threekeys. It's all in my book. My mum was poor and we struggled a bit. I left school at fifteen and became a clerk, purely to bring money to my mom. Later I became a policeman. It was just an easy way in at the time.

    When I left for England, it was also easy. They were selecting people to work as nurses in the UK. I was curious and also longed to see the Queen. Two weeks after arrival, I started nursing. I'm still doing this over 40 years later, but no, I did not think or even dream of this.

    I met my Spiritual Teacher in 1982, and my whole angle of vision changed. Now God is my only Love, in a manner of speaking, and His creation is part and parcel of my daily life. Hope this helps.
