once upon a time I wanted to be a professional photographer but without training that job flew out the window along with many other ideas.
Today, I had a lovely chat with my computer repair guy on this subject. He told me he always wanted to be a photographer but, like me, didn't have the training. His good friend who was a professional photographer asked him to help him with a photo shoot of a wedding. Danny told me he didn't go at the last minute simply because he chickened out. He has always regretted his decision not to go. The what ifs and what could have been bother him to this day. I told him that God had other plans for him that day. He even said that there was a possibility that the shop would have gone under leaving him w/o a job. His friend still has that studio though so that really bothers him.
I told him what my mother used to tell my brothers when they asked her for advice on jobs. She would say, if I had a crystal ball then I could tell you exactly which job to take. Take the job you like the best then see how it goes.
He is very successful with his computer repair shop. He's been in the same location for 22 years! I hope he knows how successful his is.
is there any dream job that you wished you had pursued?
