Who Do You Want To Be When You Grow Up?

BatmanCityWho do you want to be when you grow up?


It's a question we often ask our children, but hesitate to ask ourselves. We used to know. And our answers have changed over the years as we truly understand our opportunities and our limitations, and start living our own lives instead of someone else's. But sometimes, somewhere along the way, we stop asking.

We get caught up in going through the motions, churning through the cogwheel of busy-ness, thinking more about what we want to DO, than what we want to be.

And so today I ask you a question that is still just as valid as it was back then.

Who do you want to be when you grow up?

Because if you don't know what it looks like, how will you get there?

  1. Kind of fun to see what my first automatic response was to this question.  And it was – that I want to be a nice, kind, thoughtful person. Just was the first thing that popped into my brain pan.

  2. That's funny Linda, because I thought the same thing. My answer wasn't what do I want to be (motivational super-star booked all the time speaker), it was to be humble, appreciative, approachable, mindful, all of those admirable traits.  Oh, and the hope that I never truly grow up! So, Kelly, is this batman picture Will? So cute! Whenever I see a kid in a cape, I think of Will.

  3. A stewardess, a dancer, a backup singer, a costume designer, a speech pathologist, a nutritionist, a fitness presenter, a food network star, a motivational speaker.  On these, I am clear :)

  4. Always a wonderful question to revisit to see if you're on path. Happy my Rockettes career never happened – I'd be out of a job :-).
