I keep being asked, “what do you want to do when you grow up?”
The problem is that my answer is never conventional. First of all, am I not already all grown up? I mean life is full of challenges, and adulting is not fun. In fact, I could use a refund, but it also comes with the freedom to eat what I want and travel to cool places when I can afford it, so life is also good.
Now back to THE question. My answer is usually one of the following :
- To be happy
- To eat delicious things
- To travel
- To write, out of a cool apartment as an office, then go home to my real house
- To be a motivational speaker, and my favorite….
- To be Oprah
Yes, Oprah. I want to be a talk show host, despite the fact that I live in Haiti. Even in a time where talk shows are less popular, I want to talk and get paid for it. Writing is also fun, but I think talking takes the cake.
Unfortunately, that often doesn’t fit in the corporate org chart. But we all know that I am unrealistic, but that side of me is my strength, and I refuse to let it go. This sense of adventure is what makes life exciting, enjoyable, and thrilling. And it’s perhaps the reason why you keep reading my random thoughts.
So, I spoke about THE dream to one of my friends, and she tolerates my lack of realism and I love her for it. She encouraged me to start a podcast, and I am strongly considering it. I was in fact just googling the “how” and of course, it’s not as simple as it seems. But it also seems very exciting. I want to do all the research and be sure to commit with regular posts.
Would you be interested in listening to a podcast version of my blog? Send me comments. I’ll try to use my “sexy” voice.
I think it would also be called “Tasting It Like It is”. Food will surely be a core topic, but I was also thinking of mixing topics, from work-life balance, to motivation. But more importantly, it would be very honest.
I want to inspire, and make you realize that you don’t have to fit the mold. No matter how absurd your dream seems, chase it!
