DailyBlog: What Did You Want To Be When You Grew Up?

** The first three books in my six-part dystopian series have officially made their way out into the world! Check them out!
For the sake of blogging, self-exploration, and contemplation, I’ve been slowly making my way through answering questions from this list

Today’s Question: What did you want to be when you grew up?

When I was a kid, I wanted to be a vet because I have always loved animals. Then, when I was ten years old, I fell in love with a particular author’s writing and I knew that I was going to be an author someday. I did a lot of ‘soul searching’ in my teenage years and in my twenties, but my truest childhood ambitions really came full circle here in my thirties. I finally focused on my writing journey and I’m proud of the books I’ve published and the books I have planned for the future.

As for being a vet, although I never made it to that particular profession, I do work with rescue animals for my day job and it’s so nice to get up in the morning, truly enjoy what you do, and get paid a living salary for it.

If you’re struggling to find your place in the world, I always recommend reflecting back on your childhood dreams because that was a time in your life before you were fully indoctrinated with “sensibility” and doubts and limitations. Somewhere in your childhood passions is the root of what will truly make you happy as an adult.
