I’ve wanted to be so many different things in my life… A lawyer, a teacher, a writer, a musician, or even a private detective. Whenever HP and I come across something I enjoy (and am good at) we say I missed my calling in life.
With that said: if I could choose just one thing knowing I would not fail, I would choose to be a private detective. I love research, I love watching people (I really need to get a pair of binoculars) and I love doing both together!
As for why I never tried that path of life… I never realized it was an option. I never thought I could succeed at much. So I chose the easy path. The path trampled done and trodden by so many others.
I didn’t grow up believing ‘I could do anything’, so I never tried. BP will have a different upbringing. I can’t wait to see what she tries (even if she fails). Maybe, just maybe, she will become a private detective. Till then: I’ll go searching for that pair of binoculars –> maybe even one with a camera attached?!
P.S. I do love being a wife and mommy – hopefully I am succeeding at that. 😉
