Well I wanted to be a Nun.
Then at age 13 someone told me...you have to be a Catholic.
I knew I wasn't a Catholic, so I just waited...waited...waited.
In my 40's I joined the Salvation Army, as a Solider(uniformed).
Then I wanted to work in ministry in Gaols...and a few years later I did.
I am still working in ministry, and I always knew my passion...was to serve people, and of course God......At nearly 60...I'm very happy.
A checkout lady at the supermarket! I remember thinking they looked glamorous when I was little. I fulfilled my dream at 16yrs and got a job in a local supermarket. Had that job for a few years while studying, and soon realised it was not for me :)
I don't recall, but according to Mum, I had asked her which was the highest paid profession (at that time), to which she replied Doctor and I recoiled saying I was scared of blood. So, I apparently asked which was the second highest paid, she replied Lawyer and I said, "OK, I want to be a lawyer since I like to talk so much." Haha. I was 4. Today, I "talk" through words as a full-time writer and editor.
I remember wanting to be a mermaid and a fairy so badly. I had fairy things all our my room and wings. I wanted to be a mermaid after becoming obsessed with the movie 'The Little Mermaid'. That movie and it's music rocked! When my niece was about two she used to tell people that when she grew up she wanted to be baa baa black sheep Lol
A ballerina. And instead of that wish dying out as I got older, I pursued ballet right to university, studying it full time and getting my degree in it. After health issues I gave it up, but now I write about ballet (and other forms of dance) and feel like I found an even better way to enjoy it. I think childhood me would be happy with how things turned out.
I always wanted to be a Kindergarten teacher, but no idea why, as I do not have patience!
However, I did not become one as I met my husband to be who lived in a different State to me and I had to sign a 3 year (I think it was) contract after finishing teachers College, and did not want to be tied down to living where I was, so took a totally different avenue.
So many things, and funnily enough, in one way or another I have kinda done them all. Took me most of my life to finally admit to myself that I have always wanted to be a photographer. Could have 30 more years experience by now, but better late than never.
when I was a child I wanted to be an artist, I later wanted to combine my art talent with helping people through occupational therapy, I ended up teaching art and now do neither, but have found other fantastic ways to tap into my skills and find others I didnt know I had, still am an artist deep down though
