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 :)
