Today, I am combining my 30 Days of Truth post with the Bloggy Moms Blog Dare prompt. The prompt is to tell something about what you dreamed of being when you were little and what did you imagine that occupation would be like?
When I was little, I used to dream about being an accountant or a bookkeeper of some type. Not necessarily a CPA, but something along those lines. I really didn’t have a clue what I wanted to be when I was little. I guess I always imagined getting married and being a housewife and having children. When I started going to high school, the idea of being married wasn’t as appealing as trying to make a way for myself and having a career. I took a few accounting courses and found out that I loved it. I didn’t like math or algebra, but I loved crunching numbers in accounting.
I always imagined that I would have the bookish or librarian look with papers all over, trying to match up transactions with receipts and making sure the books balanced. That’s what I like, making sure the books balance. I hate reconciling my bank statement and I’m off by one penny. I have to keep searching until I find it. I can’t sleep until I find the mistake.
I never became an “accountant” but I think I have enough work experience and skills to perform the job now. I just don’t have a degree to go with it.
For the day 2 Truth, I have to admit that one of the things that I love about myself is that I have big dreams. It doesn’t matter if I follow through with them or not, I just like having big dreams. Like being a concert pianist. Wouldn’t that be the coolist? Now I can only hope that maybe my 7 year old will be a famous pianist/composer one day.
I dream of being a handcrafted artist and traveling the US showing my work and making friends from all over who love to do what I do.
I dream of being a stay-at-home mom with no job pressures and no financial worries. I’ll bet you do too. I dream of having a career where I assist in the start of a new small business, more in the capacity of helping them locate an office space, arranging/decorating the office, purchasing supplies, equipment, etc. Now wouldn’t that be fun?
Sometimes I have dreams that stem from frustrations, such as, locations for the girl scouts to meet in our town. Good locations are scarce. It seems that nobody really wants us to meet in their facilities, that includes churches and schools. I dream of owning a building that is large enough to accommodate girl scout activities and individual troop meetings. What a way to give back to my community.
So, like I said, it doesn’t matter if any of these dreams ever become a reality. I just like having them.
Hope your week is coming to a successful end, and that the weekend is nice and warm.
