What Did You Want to Be When You Grew Up? Plus, Books to get you inspired

ROSE & IVY Journal What did you want to be when you grew up?

What did you want to be when you grew up?  When I was little, I teetered around a few ideas of what I wanted to be.  First, I wanted to be a veterinarian.  I have always loved animals and caring for them just made me so happy.  Next, I wanted to be a hair stylist. My best friend during the first and second grade had the idea to open a hair salon - it is interesting how even back then I wanted to work for myself.  Then I wanted to be a marine biologist, because I love the ocean, but I realized there was a lot of math involved - math and I have never really gotten along too well.  Then in college, I had the intention of becoming a beauty editor, which is where I did my internships.  

Life is funny, there are twists and turns that Inevitably lead you to the path and direction that you didn't think possible.  One of the best things that I rediscovered was to be open to trying new things that can give you different skills.   I have always loved beautiful things and writing, so after much searching, trial and many errors, tears, frustration -  I have finally uncovered that 'thing' to become.  

It is never to late to change. Dream bigger than you think possible.  Here are a few books to give you inspiration to do so.  Make 2017 a year about living this way, good things are possible.
