What Do You Want to Be When You Grow Up?
Within the first few years of life, we’re asked the same question over and over: What do you want to be when you grow up? Our parents, teachers, relatives, and friends have good intentions. They want us to use our talents and gifts to make an impact in the world. They want us to set goals and to work toward them with dedication and determination. Do not worry if you do not know yet what you would like to be in five years time. Think of what you would like to be now, at present. Think of what drives you, makes your days special.
I’ll be happy when
“…work slows down. Sometimes the life of a teacher is pretty hectic, believe it or not!”
“…when I go on my next trip. I would love to go to Australia. Will have to wait till the summer of 2014, though. Still need to save up lots of money to afford this great holiday”
“…when I have sorted out my basement. I need to have it done as soon as possible otherwise I won’t be able to put up my Canadian friends in two months’ time!”
“…when I finish sewing my third skirt. I took up sewing, which is not easy for me at all. I did it as a challenge. I feel clumsy, terrible hopeless, yet I am happy I have learnt something new.”
“…when I get to see my friends on Thursday. I haven’t seen them for a long time and I really miss giving them a warm hug!”
“…when the weekend arrives. I will have some free time to read on my Kindle and skype my friends.”
What are your goals? Your wishes? Think of your ambitions, choose a photo and build up your own “Book of Goals, or Book of Wishes”. Look at mine to see what I mean by this. You need to go to http://www.pimpampum.net/bookr
