Let’s get deep and dirty for a bit.
I’m not one to skirt around the surface of things. Chit chat is nice but real talk… turns me ON!
I love a good night out dancing but I come alive when I sit quiet with someone, have a glass of something yummy and we get real.
My question of choice at parties is always “what do you want to be when you grow up?”
It sometimes causes people to freak out but some will look you in the eye and say their truth.
Oh that moment of truth contains love and sadness.
Love for what they want and sadness for not going for it.
(And as if the Universe was listening, this song just popped onto Spotify hence the title of this piece!)

People come alive when they talk about what they love.

Even the most introverted show a hint of a smile and animation.

So how come this question is so potent?

I think it’s because it’s rooted in a few different things.

?The opportunity to dream.

?The opportunity to see themselves as being young and their future being ahead of them.

?The opportunity to talk about themselves and what they love.

We all have that grand dream where we’re an astronaut, a racing car driver or a fire woman… I wanted to be a fighter jet pilot! ?

But as we get a little older, these occupations become more about self-expression and less about labels.

Self-actualisation and doing YOUR thing.

Creating something that’s yours because YOU want to.

When I listen to people talk about what they want to be when they grow up, there’s always a sadness of why they didn’t or they can’t.

There an a myriad of reasons they give but they one that always stands out is…

Who’s gonna pay me to do that?

Well, here’s the punchline…

Has someone else done it?

Nine times out of ten the answer is yes.

Then it CAN be done.

You just have to find out how they did it, tweak it to suit you and do it.

There are obviously other causes but this is one that blows minds and leaves them wondering “what if”.

What if I tried, what if I really went for it…

What if…

What if…

What if…

I then disappear back to the party and dance the night away.
