We ask our children and our Grandchildren “Who do you want to be when you grow up?”
They will tell you, a policeman, a nurse, or even a fireman.
I just wanted to be a Mum, an Artist and of course married. !
It wan’t really until I was in my early 40’s that I decided there was more to life than making school lunches, doing the washing and ironing and cooking mountains of food (as rewarding as it was) and I began a small fashion design business. I had no idea what I was doing. I just had good ideas, good intentions and $2000 and as the years progressed the family grew, I worked full time as a designer and I’m proud of what my business partner and I achieved.
If you asked me now what I would like to do when I grow up. I would say I would like to be a photographic journalist and a Textile Art Designer.
My world has changed almost faster than I can keep up. Who hasn’t seen their life fundamentally changed by technology over the past decades
Indeed, so set forth and create a world with meaning, a world that reflects your needs and values – who doesn’t want to achieve that.
I know what I want to be when I grow up.
