When I Grow Up I Want to Be…

27 Jan

We’ve all said this at what one time or another in our lifetime and as children our hopes and dreams have no limits. So, why is it so many of us find ourselves as adults unhappy with what we have accomplished and doubtful of what we truly want to be?
This has been on my mind since, well, a long time and as I travel along in search for the pursuit of happiness I have realized I have forgotten one major and very important detail in this journey. Me.
I have been so focused on what is best for everyone else in my circle and constantly worried about making everyone around me happy that I have forgotten why I am even traveling down this path. Where did I go? I can argue that by taking care of others needs and wants in return makes me happy but I still end up against a brick wall doing so. I will also admit that while I know exactly what things make me happy, I still can’t tell you what I want to do when I grow up. Do we really ever grow up? And when we finally decide, what happens when we change our minds again?
What I do know is I need to decide for myself what I want to do, for me and not for anyone else. Easier said than done but I love a challenge so here goes nothing!

Happy Friday to everyone.
