Me, greeting at a New Leaders Event, just 2 days before we learned I was carrying twins
My best friend mentioned to me the other day that she wished Dana and I would win the lottery, that way I could take a certain job. I'm not looking, but it's a job where they could really use my skills and it would allow me more time at home with the kids.
I love working at United Way, but sometimes I miss doing work that has very defined tasks. Also sometimes I'd like to have more time at home. So I started thinking, if money wasn't an issue, what job would I do?
Honestly, there are so many jobs in the world I think might be fun. Would I be a fashion designer, a chef, an actress... But, the job I know and miss is being a barista. If I could do anything at all, I would work in a coffee shop again. I love chatting with the regulars, meeting new customers, making the perfect cup of coffee and knowing what people like. Although it has been 10 years since I worked at one local shop, I still remember my customers. The gal at the dry cleaners takes a tall decaf americano, the dentist- a short americano, the pastor- short skinny latte extra hot no foam, the radio dj- tall double mocha no whip. There are many more. I loved that once I cleaned up at the end of the day, I was done. There wasn't anything to think about at home, I would go in and serve customers, clean up and the day was done.
So if you could work at any job in the world, and childcare and money were no object, what would you do?
