S is for Searching

I saw a quote online today that basically said that as a parent you are expected to guide someone else while still trying to figure out what you want to do when you grow up.

I'm on the hunt for who I've not yet become.

I have NO idea how I was ever supposed to figure out what I wanted to do with my life. Yes, I went to college, have had several jobs, and am good at what I do. That said, I don’t really see myself as my profession. It’s not my identity.

What do I want to be when I grow up? Number one, it’s highly unlikely that I will ever grow up. Number two, I’m not even the same person today as I was yesterday. Change is constant. Number three, we love to explore new things and each one is always a possibility.

Bottom line, Charmer? My life will probably be a series of renditions of myself, each different, each true and changing until the very last second.

  1. Happy is he who from childhood knows what he wants and who he wants to be and strives for this. Most likely, the achievements of such a person will be more significant than those of someone who rushes from side to side.
