What do you want to be when you grow up?

Stream of consciousness starting... NOW!

Remember when you were a little kid and adults would constantly ask, "What do you want to be when you grow up, (insert name)?" I do and boy do I remember the ridiculous careers I would choose, astronaut, marine biologist, veterinarian, and my personal fav, prima ballerina. But here's a question: why don't people still ask us that? I may be 23 and married but there are still so many things I want to be/continue to be. I'm still growing up here, people. Here are just a few of the things I want to be when I grow up:

1. A follower of Jesus Christ
2. A devoted and loving wife
3. A caring mother
4. A loyal friend
5. A fun and helpful Child Life Specialist

Notice how only one out of five has to do with an actual job. Don't get me wrong, having a job that I love is very important, but it is not THE most important thing. Numbers 1-4 are what drive me, give me passion, and are what make life worth living. So now let me ask you, what do you want to be when you grow up?
