“What do you want to be when you grow up?”
Who else was asked this question a million times throughout their childhood?
When I was a young child, I wanted to be a doctor because I wanted to be just like my tía. But then she changed careers and became a science teacher. Growing up, I was surrounded by educators. My tía and tío were educators and my parents were always involved with the schools, in one way or another. Needless to say, I didn’t pursue teaching. Not even close.
As adults, we are rarely asked this question. Is it because we are supposed to have it all figured out? Or because we are expected to choose only one career?
Well, I’m here to tell you that it’s okay if you don’t have it all figured out. Have one career if you want to, or have multiple! Give yourself permission to change your mind. Give yourself an opportunity to evolve, grow, and try out new things. Who made up the rules, anyway?
Tell me, how has your career evolved throughout the years? And what did you learn from it?
