If I weren't who I am, I'd be.....

So I thought it might be a fun to explore the other side of who we are.  Even though I am a design engineer that is in the area of creativity, my real passion was art.  Mostly charcoal, pastels, and watercolor.  So if I weren't who I am, I'd have been another Andy Warhol.

 

Your turn....

If I weren't an electronics technician, I'd probably be an auto mechanic...

 

My Dad ran a foreign car repair shop as our family business and I was totally immersed in it with him all during high school as his helper and apprentice. I even self-funded and rebuilt the engine for my own car (on my own time) when I was just 16. I was a sure bet to be assigned to a motor pool for the Marines, but apparently my ASVAB scores dictated otherwise...So the "Green Machine" in her infinite wisdom decided that I shall go to school to become a 2800 electronics communications technician which I ultimately did (2841), and did well. That has always struck me as weird because while working at the shop on cars that had an electrical bug, I couldn't read a freakin' schematic and always deferred those issues immediately to my Dad... ;)

 

Now I've basically been in some form of electronics communications for over 32 years! At age 50, that's really all I know how to do...

If I weren't a married HVAC Technician I'd be better at golf!

 

But being serious I would have stayed away from the college girls and booze and continued with the original plan of being an athletic trainer.

If I were't who I am, I'd become who I am soon enough.

This planet wears you down.

If I weren't a chemical technician I would probably work somewhere like Georgia Power or Norfolk Southern. I had plans of being a school teacher right after graduating high school but I realized I couldn't put up with a class full of teenagers for 8 hours a day.

I'm like Fonda in “Easy Rider” when he has that moment of clarity. He asks, “Have you ever wanted to be someone else?” Hippy commune guy answers “I'd like to try Porky Pig.” Fonda-“I've never wanted to be anyone else.”

 

I'm not rich, my kids drive me crazy and my wife sometimes gives me hell, but I never wanted to be anything else than who I am.

I think that my childhood idols--Rocky Marciano, Ray Robinson, Ted Williams, and Frank Sinatra--may have led lives worth trying, at least for a while.

 

But overall, I see deejais's point...the devil you know and all that.

I'm actually perfectly fine with who I am. I love my work (hands on, creative and a special bond with the tools and material)  and the interests I have.

 

It is nice to think about what you might have been/become if you were pushed in a different direction at a certain time of your life, though.

In that case, I'd like to be a holistic healer or Shaman. Help people with their TOTAL wellbeing, Spiritual, Mental, Emotional, and Physical.

 

Comforting the entire being of someone that is struggling with illness would be a worthwhile endeavor.

A better person.

Be careful what you ask for.....................

 

You might be a better person, but you may not like the price you had to pay to become a better person. I know, because I prayed a lot to become a better person. Maybe not in all cases, but I paid a hefty price to become  a better person.

 

Having said that... it's worked out for the best after a few years of struggling and coming to terms.

 

Okay.... sorry for the derail of the thread. Mods, please take it down if you feel you need to.

I know where you were going with the comments. It's all good on my end. This was just a fun thread, no harm no foul. I think the majority of us really are happy with whom we are.
