A Look See

What did you want to do when you grew up?

A few weeks ago I was asked this question from a younger person; who at the age of thirty is having an identity crisis with the career he has chosen and trained for.  My answer was "to make money."  I wanted to make money, that is all I could think of when I was a teenager.  Money so scarce in my childhood home.  We were poor by many standards, so money was the beacon.  Not my siren call, just money, and I have been chasing the dollar every since.  Not having money can make me unhappy but I have also discovered, having money won't make me happy either.   I like having extra funds available to me, but I am still the same gal who finds my life lacking.  From where I stand, like this pentacle fairy I am looking to what is next.

  1. I can relate to your answer. I wanted security - having lived with unreliable, easily angered people and dealing with not knowing if we'd have food and lodging each week.

    1. Once when I was about 12 and delivering newspapers I found five one dollar bills along the road and I spent some time looking to see if more. When I got home and told my parents my Dad loaded the five of us younger ones and drove us to where i found the bills and made us search for a hour for anymore. I ended up having to give four of the five dollars to my parents for household stuff.

  2. I never had a clue and only came to understand the best side of my nature late in life.
