Growing up, we all have dreams of what we want to become when we're older. Our dreams as children are idyllic and limitless. We don't have the pressure of boundaries and expectations we start to carry around as adults. We dream about being athletes, ballerinas, artists, actors, models, astronauts or rock stars -- things that sound glamorous because as children, we don't know what those roles are really like. We only know the idealized view of them society gives us.
It was interesting reading through the responses my friend received. A lot of people went right back to those childhood dreams and listed one as their great passion in life. My first instinct was to do the same, but I think I've been an adult too long because I censored myself and tried to come up with something I'm passionate about but could still be a "realistic" career for me. I love taking photographs and I love writing, so photographer and writer would have made great sounding responses. I can't even remember what I chose to post, but I just remember thinking what I answered wasn't really truthful.
If I'm really honest with myself, what I would love to be if I could start over is an organizational expert.
