Hey Kid: Dream Job

I’ve had lots of ideas for my “dream job” over the years.  When I was little, I wanted to be a stewardess and travel all over the world.  Then there was a time that I was going to compete in the Equestrian Events in the Olympics.  (Yes, I could ride a horse and actually competed in Dressage but the jumping part was a bit intimidating.)  I once thought bar tending and/or psychiatry was for me.  (Same thing, right?)   For a while, when the kids were in high school, my dream job was to teach World Religions at an all boys, Catholic high school that had a really great football team.  (That’s another blog post.) But I’ve moved on and now… If I could do any job I wanted, I would travel the world and document the funeral and death rituals of different cultures.  Weird.  I know.  I just think it would be so fascinating to observe and learn about how other people bury their dead, how they grieve and mourn.  I see it as a series on the Discovery Channel... something fabulous like that.  It’s one of the common denominators among all cultures… and everyone does it a little bit differently.  I think it would be very interesting.  But that’s just me.

The point of this post is to keep your mind open and never stop dreaming and using your imagination.  It’s never too late to accomplish a goal or achieve a dream.  Never.  Ever.  Dreams and goals and aspirations change, but our need to keep striving never leaves us.   It’s never too late to land your dream job!
