inner child

  1. Look deep-deep into your inner child.
    What did you want to be when you grew up? How true to your dreams have you become?

    My inner child is eight and younger.
    A nurse, and I guess I have made it thus far.
    (okay, a rock and roll star..........but I still do sing outside, inside the car and in the shower!!!!!)

    One word: Astronaut

    I even went to space camp. Too bad I'm afraid of heights...

    Surgeon.......instead I became a nurse who for a long period of time cared for surgical patients before and after surgery, and for a time taught pre and post op patient education. Loved packing those wounds....the deeper the better. Then, I moved from adult patients to newborns and pedi patients.

    I wanted to be a singer/ rock star/ dancer something performing.. too bad I sound as good as nails on a chalk board and can't even walk down the hallway without tripping over my own two feet.. However, I've noticed since I've become a nurse, all that stuff seems kinda silly, I mean really, a rock star???? Can they say they save lives for a living? How cool is that?

    When I was a kid I wanted to be an OTR truck driver. Never made it. I thought it would be so cool traveling through all the different states, shifting gears, double-clutching coming down the mountains, oh what a glamorous life I thought. My uncle went from Lake Charles LA to Detroit, and back. I went with him a couple of times. Loved it.

    I wanted to be a Pyschiatrist, or a novelist. For a while I wanted to be a secretary. Go figure.

    Vetrinarian. BUT, (I live on a farm) so one time a cow cast her withers (which just means that when she gave birth she also gave birth to her uterus) so the vet had to come and put her uterus back inside her. Well, he put her uterus in a bucket of water and some special soap, and blood was everywhere, I had to hold the IV.......and i started to black out and saw little pink dots everywhere. I swore right up and down to my mom that I was dieing......from then on I lost the idea of being a vet......

    A few years ago, I wanted to be like the girls on Coyote Ugly and dance on bars and be a bar tender to pay for college......my best friend and I wanted to do that. We just wanted to dance, fully clothed n' all, since we loved to dance and what not...........but.......that died down.....

    My inner child has had many phases! Most of her younger yrs she wanted to be a gymnast/professional dancer...but as my inner child grew up she decided she wanted to be a psychologist.

    I think someday we will be...unless they start accepting "old" non-skeleton-like gymnasts, then our dreams may come true!

    so by becoming a nurse I think I need to talk to my inner child...
