It’s kind of interesting that yesterday’s prompt was what you would do if you won the lottery, and today’s is all about your dream job. Michael and I often discuss what we would do if we could be or do anything we want to be and money was no object. I’ve never fully grown up, so I still think about that often.
If you’re new here, Taylor and I are blogging everyday in October for #Blogtober14. Follow along on social media with the hashtag too! You can find all the prompts here. Today we’re asking: What was your dream job growing up and what is it now?
As a child, I always imagined that I’d be a star. I really didn’t care much which venue: acting, singing, dancing, whichever and also where ever: Broadway, TV, movies. I knew it would never be sports related, but I wanted to make it.
Okay. Thank you. It’s amazing I didn’t become a famous fashion model…
Growing up, my parents encouraged me to pursue my dreams, no matter what they were, as long as I got an education along the way. I did ballet and dance, and was involved in theater even through high school and into college. Then I realized what the schedules were like. How I wouldn’t get to spend as much time with my family.
While the what-would-you-do-if question is fun, it’s really hard because it still something I’m struggling with. How can I figure out what I want to be?
I know what I like to do and what makes me happy. I’m just not sure how to turn that into a source of income. So, if I could have my dream job, money being no object, it would be a writer. Which, in retrospect, most writers are semi-“stars.” They are revered, sometimes their books are turned into movies, and they write what they want (mostly).
That’s definitely something I need in a job: flexibility and the ability to do something that I love.
When it comes down to it, and this might sound ridiculous, but I’d love to blog full time. I’d love to help people start their own blog while creating and developing my own site (that’s why I started consultations).
I’ve always felt the need to express myself and for me, writing works best. Cheers to hoping that dream becomes a reality one day! That, or I’m going to work as a hair model because clearly I’ve got the look down. (Just kidding, but seriously, what look was that photographer going for in those shots?)
