I will surely not be on my deathbed saying, “Oh I wish I had done…..” If I want to try something, I do. If there’s a big change I want to make, I make it happen. I don’t live by society’s rules of “go to school, get married, buy house, have kids.” I may do all or none of those – it’s my choice when, if, and in what order.
I also don’t believe I have to find one career and stick with it til I retire. I do things I find interesting, until they no longer interest me. Then I move on. I make my own rules. And when those don’t work, I change them:)
I’m a Renaissance Soul. A Scanner. The whole idea of picking just one career baffles me – because I can’t imagine doing just one thing for the rest of my life. I find something nearly every day that I want to try. The question, “Where will you be five years from now?” seems silly because in five years I’ll be doing things that I haven’t even heard of yet.
And for all those people who say, “Can I live vicariously through you?” I say “Sure.” Be my guest. But do me a favor – think about your own dreams, then go out and pursue them:)
