Looking to the future

We are all asked a similar question as a child: What do you want to be when you grow up? I’ve been working on this for 22 years and I still don’t have a specific answer or a dream job in mind. I don’t know all of the details that my life will bring, or just what exactly I will be doing in the next 50 years or so, but I do have an idea of what I want my life to look like.

You aren’t here to see the final product, the person I have become, or the person I will become in the future.
