Probably the easiest question for me now in the phase of life I am in. In order of years, here is how I have evolved:
Age 5: I would work as a Clown , all day and night and paint a thousand faces a day until my fingers didn’t work anymore
Age 10: I would work as a masseuse, but would take tips. I wouldn’t work around the clock, but would keep the tips and get my nails done
Age 15: I would be a surfing instructor but only to really good-looking guys and they could take me out for a burger right? That doesn’t count as being paid exactly
Age 20: You’re kidding right? That won’t be happening any time soon. I better get paid and paid a lot
Age 25: I might work as a nurse with little children and teach other nurses how to be more compassionate toward families and patients
Age 30: I would be a lawyer and help women with stupid soon to be ex-husbands
Age 35: I would work doing something inside a race track, for a least two years as long as I could take my family with me so they could enjoy the perks
Age 40: I would work with a few worthy organizations to help my community and maybe write a children’s book
Age 45: (yes, Im this old) I would go on a free speaking tour to every middle school:
- to teach empathy
- to teach about our homeless and hungry
- to learn from them about anything they want to share
Age 50 and beyond: Are you really serious that I still have to work for free? I would certainly use my out-door gardening skills to start and run a community garden for our hungry kids and review books. I would babysit, yes I would.
What would you do?
