What would I be?

My mom and I spent a lot of time talking on our little roadtrip last week.  I asked her what she would do (for a living) if she could do anything.  Not considering money, training, or even talent.  She said she would want to be a marine biologist.  She didn't even hesitate.

So why, a week later, am I still wondering what my answer to that question would be?  Well, as my mom pointed out, one reason is that I think way too much about a question like that.  I think, well I'd like to be a singer or an actress.  But then I think no, because I want to be married and have my kid(s) and live in Indiana and I couldn't really do those things and have that life. 

I guess it comes down to I can't imagine a life other than the one I have.  Sure, the trials and challenges aren't so desirable, but I would rather have my friends and my family then to trade away my problems.  Bottom line, I may not know what I want to be when I "grow up" or what I'd be if I could be anything, but today, I'm pretty happy just being me.

Now if only being me included a bigger paycheck :)

At first this post reminded me of the movie Office Space and how he couldn't think of what he'd want to do if he won a million dollars. But he wasn't satisfied and it sounds like you are, so that's great!
