Most of us.........if not all of us........had childhood dreams of what "we wanted to be when we grew up."
For me, I always wanted to be a cop. ALWAYS.
So, I went to college, got a degree in Criminal Justice......and.....became a cop.
I always wanted to be a cop until I became a cop. Then all I wanted to do is NOT be a cop. My childhood dream wasn't what I thought it would be. Could have been because I was in a small town.
So, I regrouped......went back to college to become a teacher. I had NEVER wanted to be a teacher. Both my mom and sister were in education and I swore I would never do it. And yet, all these many years later, here I am.
And I love what I do.
I often wonder if I would have gone ahead and taken the job with the Dallas PD when offered, where my life would be today.
How about you? Are you really living your childhood dream or did you make a left turn on that career road?
If you made a turn in adult life, would you still like to live your childhood dream?
