I've heard it since I was young, "What do you want to be when you grow up?" Our teachers, our parents, the local new stations.. they all asked us
as children. And we do the same to our children. And I'm sure that will happen for a very long time.
But as we grow older, we lose our dreams. Less and less 15 year olds say, "I want to be an astronaut" and more and more say, "I don't know. I
And when we finish school, we seem even more lost most of the time. Unsure of our future, so we go to college just hoping to figure it out along the
way. And many beer bongs later, we have accomplished nothing. We still wander. Some of us leave college and go to the nearest Burger King, or diner..
to make ends meet, while we search further.
Certainly by this point, the dreams of flying in space are gone. We don't even watch the news when other people go into space. Now we just live
aimlessly. Hoping at some point that a bright star will begin to shine and say, "Here is the place you belong!" Oh, it would be amazing if life did
work this way. But all too often, people grow old, and die.. and never do find the place they were meant to reach.
So I'm curious... if you feel you have reached your destiny. If you feel that you found your place in life, or that you're on the path that will
bring you there.. will you share your wisdom with us? How did you identify what you were meant to be? Meant to do? I could really use some direction
myself, and I honestly have no idea which way to go. But I know there are some extremely intelligent people in here, so I want to open your minds up a
bit, and absorb your intelligence, if you don't mind.
(And to the Mods, I apologize if this thread seems as aimless as my life.. lol It has great merit, if it is allowed to continue)
