When I was little, I dreamed about being a ballerina and an artist when I grew up. That was always what I wanted to do, and I knew that that was what I was going to do.

But then I got older. I stopped ballet. I didn't draw as much. My interests began to change. I "discovered" the computer and found out that I like messing with HTML. I bought my first camera, a Kodak EasyShare that was under $100. I started a blog. I self-published my first and second book. I decided that when I got older (and even when I was young) I wanted to be a photographer, writer, and maybe a web designer.
Things change. People change. I thought I was sure of my future career when I was seven years old, but I changed. I don't think God's future for me holds a ballet career, or being an artist. Those areas are simply not where I feel led.
And who knows? Maybe my interests will change again (although I doubt it at the moment ☺). I won't know until then,
The point is, maybe God has something different for you than you think. When I was seven, I thought being a ballerina was the best thing in the world. But now that I'm older and I love writing and photography, I can't imagine better occupations. I realized that I am gifted in writing and photography, but not as much in ballet or art, although I do still enjoy art.
Maybe God has something better planned for you than you can imagine at the moment. Be open to His plan, because it most certainly is the best one.
