When I Grow Up…

The Joy of Daydreaming!

I’m a dreamer. I can’t help it. I don’t want to.

I love dreaming about what things would be like if they were different. If I had taken different paths. Made different mistakes. It doesn’t mean that I’m not happy with where I am and with what I have right now. It’s just part of being me.

With that in mind, I’ve decided that I want to tell you what I want to be when I grow up. When I was little my mom says that I told her I wanted to be a police officer and first baseman for the Toronto Blue Jays. I don’t particularly want those things anymore, but they were good choices for an 8 year old.

  • A champion for local charity
  • A bar owner
  • A chef

There you have it. A list of 15 things that I would love to be when I grow up. Whenever that will be. And if it never happens and I never end up being any of those things – it’s cool. Like I said, I’m happy with what I am and where I am and what I have right now. I just like the dreaming.

Do you have a list or a dream? Share it. Tell the world here or on Twitter or Facebook or wherever. Hastag it #WhenIGrowUp and we’ll compare notes!

And remember, no matter what you’re doing now, what you do next or what you want to be when you grow up – stay awesome!

    I want to open a theme bar. A courtroom. The only place where you show up and THEN get served. 😉 HIMYM
    Also you are a blogger and an idea guy and I’m sure a few nights a week you are even a country singer.

    Just because something isn’t your “career” doesn’t mean it’s not who you are 🙂

    I always just wanted to be a Singer but had bouts of wanting to be an interior decorator, bar owner and teacher 🙂 OH and mommy, that was a pretty good path for me to choose.
