I have been thinking a lot about what I want to be when I grow up in the last few weeks. Events that have precipitated these thoughts include my big summer project, the whole back to school thing and a friend's exciting new job. I'm feeling a bit in limbo right now and am not really sure what is next for me.
On our drive home from fencing tonight, I mentioned my conundrum to Colin. I think it's good that the boys know that people continually grow, evolve, change, learn etc. Colin was quiet for a moment and then replied, "Mom, you're going to have so many options once you finish your ____. You just need to choose something. You want to make a difference and you want to enjoy your work, otherwise, what is the point?"
Exactly, my wise 11 year old, exactly right.
