What would you do? Keep it real. It has to be something you could really do in your lifetime, a job that could pay the bills, or a hobby that feeds your soul. You can't be Wonder Woman, a rock star (unless you truly have the talent), or a nuclear physicist (again, unless you truly have the talent). Where would you live? What would you do? Who would you be?
A long, long time ago, my high school yearbook read that I would be an opera singer in ten years. I loved to sing. Still do, but only when it suits me. Although it was a very big part of my life and I was in four choirs to boot, I lacked the drive and ambition to really make it in the world of entertaining. I was a singer, definitely not an entertainer. So I followed some of my other dreams and I am quite content with my decisions.
But...if I could have a do over and could experience a few things at little differently, I would have to say that I wished I had experienced living in New York City, even if it was only for a few months. I'd like to think I could have lived there for a while, but I'm not so sure. I loved living in Boston, but quite honestly, I'm glad I live in the country. If I could re-live my twenties again, I think I could have made a go of it as a food truck chef. A food truck would have given me the freedom to play with food more, allowed me to change my location when I got bored, and interact with lots of people. Something my current position doesn't really allow me to do. (And I'd be writing a book about food of course.) What else? Maybe a character actor that played bit parts because again, I'm not really into the "look at me, here I am" part of entertaining, but when I watch a comedy I think to myself, "What a great way to make a living!". My husband would definitely be a ski instructor. He loves the outdoors, loves to ski, and loves the snow.
And just for fun...
Maybe you'd prefer to own an ice cream truck. (This may be second on my husband's list.)
What would I serve on my food truck? Probably sandwiches, with a few salads and soup mixed in for good measure. Here's a cute idea for a menu.
Do you want to run a 5k, participate in a triathlon, or run a half marathon? You might want to check out these running shoes.
Ever dream about becoming a zoo keeper? Do you remember the contestant on Survivor who was a zoo keeper? We met her at the Naples Zoo and it looked like a pretty cool job.
If you love animals, but zoos aren't your thing, maybe you'd like to own a kennel like my oldest daughter dreams about.
My husband started college studying to be a pilot. Would you like to fly the friendly skies?
So many choices...
Have a fabulous weekend!
