WHAT DO I WANT TO BE WHEN I GROW UP? I FOUND THE ANSWER AT 63!
Thursday, July 30, 2009
When I was growing up everyone was always asking me what I wanted to do when I grew up, and I didn't know. It made me sad when I didn't know when I thought I was supposed to know. Was there something wrong with me. my one grand daughter knew by sixth grade that she wanted to be a doctor, a orthopedic surgeon and sports medicine. This year she is a senior ih high school and she still wants the same dream, Another grand daughter has always wanted to be an interior designer. She is going into high school and that is still her dream. my oldest one is my grandson and he has wanted to be a fireman. he is now in college to get a BS degree in fire protection. He is also a paid on call firefighter in our town. They all knew wnat they wanted to do the rest of their lives when they were children.
then they is Grandma who had no idea what i wanted to do. I got married and had 4 children and 6 grandchildren. I thought that was my purpose in life. All my life I kept thinking that there was something missing in my life. When I was 58 I starting volunteer work in caregiving for alzheimars patients, I got to talking to the patients and there families and helped them how to get what they needed. I decidind FINALLY that helping people and guiding them was what i always wanted to do. I wanted to become a social worker.
Then i had to decide how i was going to go back to school. i decided to go to school on line. I contacted different colleges about their on line programs. Then I decided on Ashford University. I start on August 25,2009. I finally fulfilled my life.
