When I grow up, I want to be... a Solider

When I grow up, I want to be… a Solider

It’s a question that everyone faces at some point in their life. Perhaps in school by a curious teacher, or may be an internal monologue as you try and figure out your place in the world. At its simplest it can be an innocent query to help inform a child’s interest during early development – ‘What do you want to be when you grow up?’.

For me, I never really had a clear idea of this. At one point as a primary school pupil – with my academic strengths in maths and numeracy – I once asserted that I wanted to be an Accountant (of all things). As I grew older into my teens I became less certain and bounced around from one fad to another with no lasting commitment. Even now; mature by an account of my many years, I do not feel like a ‘grown up’. I mean; is this really it for me? From now to the grave!

To recapture the promise of youth and endeavour to defy the complacency of adulthood, I set out to utilise the magic of the question and ask myself ‘What do you want to be when you grow up?’.
