“I lack willpower. Unless I find something interesting. Then I lack stopping power.”
Yet the truth of what they say is profound.
I have very little staying power. Following through, staying with something beginning to end is somewhat of a foreign concept to me. I cannot think of a single instance when this has happened.
Since forever and a day, I wanted to be a writer.
Then a singer/songwriter.
Then I just wanted to be famous:)
Then I wanted to be a teacher.
Then I wanted to be a medical researcher.
Then I thought I’d get into accounting…what!?
Then I thought I needed to get into fashion.
Then I wanted to be an interior decorator.
Now I’m all grown up and I still haven’t decided what I want to be.
Actually, now I’m old and have a chance to become whatever I want to be.
And I’m still wondering “what do I want to be when I grow up?”.
One thing for sure…I never, ever thought I wanted to be a wife and mother.
As it turned out, wife/mother is the only thing I followed through with. Every other desirable “being” I thought I wanted were all started but never completed.
What about you? Did you pursue your interests and become successful?
When you think back, did you try to follow your chosen career path from when you were young?
Way back when, little boys wanted to firemen…and little girls wanted to ?
