Pretty Much Did That!

Ballerina Fireman Astronaut Movie Star

When you were 10, what did you want to be when you grew up? What are you now? Are the two connected?


At age ten I remember wanting to be a wife, a mother, a teacher, and a writer. Back then, I thought I’d be a poet.  That’s not going to happen.  My poetry is mostly sappy and awkward.  However, I do love to write.

I became a wife at 21; a mom at 22, 24, 27, and 30. I was a substitute teacher during all those years, and a full- time teacher in my late 30’s and 40’s, subbed again in my early 50’s until I went back to school for a master’s degree so I could do private practice counseling–something else I thought about in college, years ago, but put on hold.

While I’m not a professional or acknowledged writer—yet  🙂  –that dream still lives.  So yes, I’d say what I wanted back then has come true.

How cool is that?
