This quote attributed to the late John Lennon of Beatles fame has been making the rounds lately:
“When I was five years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.”
What do you remember wanting to be when you grew up? What did your parents, teachers and other significant adults in your life want you to be? What are you doing now?
