What do YOU Want to be?

That's the question most five year olds are asked about growing up.  What do you want to be?  I think that question has more to do with us than them.  Maybe a better question is who are you now?    Maybe we ask to recapture our own sense of wonder and dreaming; recalling our own desires to be a ballerina, a firefighter, a super-hero, or a librarian.  

I wonder what the answer would be if we asked who they are rather than who they want to be.  Better yet, why don't we ask that question of ourselves - we may be surprised at the answer - especially if we are NOT the librarian or the firefighter but instead we are the electrician or the retail sales clerk.  Careers rarely suggested to five year olds but often achieved by their adult counterparts.  So, maybe you like being an electrician or maybe not.  The real question is WHAT do YOU want to be now?
