When I Grow Up… I Want To Be ME!

What have you always wanted to be?

Back in 1st grade, I wanted to be a flight attendant – or should I say, stewardess (that’s what they called it during the 90’s)… and then, 2nd grade rolled in and I wanted to be an archaeologist. Legit, I was collecting rocks and analyzing what kind they were – sedimentary, igneous, metamorphic, etc. (See funny true story below) Then at one point, I wanted to be a vet, but you know, the one that didn’t deal with reptiles. And then a lawyer and then a VJ… the list was endless.

Funny true story: My dad would always help me carry my bag when he picked me up from after-school activities and one day he asked, “What do you have in here? Rocks? Why is it so heavy?” Little did he know… I actually did have rocks. Ha!

Ok, so back to what I was saying. As a child, we have many dreams and aspirations. I want to be this, I want to be that! But as you grow older, you realize that you don’t always become what you want to be, or what you thought you wanted to be. And you know what I’ve gathered after 28 years…? Is that it’s TOTALLY and ABSOLUTELY OKAY! While society, and sometimes your parents, dictate what mold you have to fit in, you have to know for yourself that every individual is unique and everyone has a different path to take. There is no such thing as ‘cookie cutter’ lives. Seriously, take it from me. A wandering soul… on a journey to truly find what it is I’m really meant to do. And as my birthday comes creeping around the corner and I turn another year older, I have to stop and think about what I’m doing with my life. And then it hits me…

I am BEING ME!

Living the way I want to. No, scratch that. Just simply LIVING. Period.

No regrets, with arms wide open.
