August writing prompt: Childhood

Return to the mindset of your child self, and fill in this statement: 
"When I grow up, I want to be..." 
Allow yourself to stream-of-consciously write, without editing. 

Afterwards, examine what you wrote--- and notice the values, interests, and passions of your child self. How have you changed over time? How does the activities and energies of your current job, life, or career compare with that of your childhood dreams? If anything is not to your satisfaction, then what can you change? 

Allow for a second stream-of-consciousness flow, exploring these questions.
