    Default What do you want to be when you grow up?

    As a kid, all I ever wanted to be was "retired". Now that my plan's out the window, what did (do) you want to be?



    And yes, this is a rant.

    Grow up? Me? There's no danger of that happening.

    A secret agent that has good looks and striking wit,(Hey, I've already got part of the job description! ) charming and smooth as glass, has all the kung foo, get's the best toys, and get's flown all over the world at the expense of his agency. But only like 5 times a year. The rest of the time I'll be focused on curating bespoke suits and classic cars for my impeccably clean estate. Basically 007 but less British and without the possibility of torture.

    Go and learn what this means: Hosea 6:6 "I desire mercy, not sacrifice"

    I've never figured that out. I still don't know what I want to do with my life. I doubt I'll ever figure it out.

    I grew up volunteering in nursing homes and for the Red Cross. I still love to volunteer.. if I could live and give my time as a career to others who need something, I'd be immeasurably fulfilled..

    I'm just assuming (hopefully correctly) that you are referring to when Christ comes back and not about being severly sick.

    I didn't think of how that sounded.
    I'm not sick. But the way this world is going, it can't be long, agreed?

    I wanted to be a cop or join the Army or any job where I would get to shoot and beat up bad guys. Before that I wanted to be a ghost buster. Lol

    I want to be a Fremen warrior when I grow up. Yeah, that's it. Desert-dwelling drug addict that kills people with a worm tooth and renders the bodies down for the water they contain.

    ...good work if you can get it.

    If a person has ugly thoughts, it begins to show on the face. And when that person has ugly thoughts every day, every week, every year, the face gets uglier and uglier until you can hardly bear to look at it.

    A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly. You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth, but if you have good thoughts it will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.

    I always wanted to be an elementary school teacher and eventually homeschool my kids so i can be a stay at home wife and mother. Fast forward to high school I didn't want to attend school for five years so I settled on wanting to go to beauty school and run my own salon out of my home....fast forward a few more years after putting my future on hold because of caring for my mom and ailing grandparents, I decided to go back to school and now I have a degree in accounting that I would love to someday work from home, I am also in the process of becoming a Mary Kay consultant and starting up a catering company. Many things have changed, but one thing that always remained is that I always wanted to be is a stay at home wife and mother....and it's in God's hands when that will happen
