When I grow Up

I was walking back to my desk the other day and two of my staff stopped me and said, “Heather, what did you want to be when you grew up?”

I stopped and took a second to reflect before I responded and my answer was anything but simple.

I am sure that throughout my life I have wanted to be many things. I am “grown” now and still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up but I do know that I don’t ever want to be just one thing. Only wanting to be one thing means that I would be that one thing forever, I would rather want to be what feels right in the moment and if the wind changes than so does where I am headed.

I think it’s okay to not have an answer to that question. I think that the happiest people are the ones who have not defined a small part of the world for themselves but have left opportunity for discovery of self.

I think none of really know what we want to be when we grow up.
