My 5 year old neighbor asked me if I had to work today,I told her that it was a Saturday and I did not have to go to the office. She then asked me to describe my tasks during the day.I told her that I sat at a desk,used a computer,made presentations. I told her that there were no toys or snacks or nap time. She said she did not like the sound of the office.
I then asked her what type of work she would like to do when she grew up. She told me that she wanted to work in a company selling fried chicken,she called the same name of the place where her mother worked. She was not sure what she wanted to do specifically . She added that she would work and go to school. I asked her to explain,she indicated that by going to school , she would get a better job.
I was shocked. So I engaged her further . I asked her what she would do with the money that she earned from her job . She plainly said “pay bills”. I was mortified. At 5 years old she captured the dilemma of the current struggle. I analyzed her household , her mother worked at the fried chicken company,her grandmother worked at a security firm. Her 17 year old sister graduated from high school and she was at home . I know that it was only a matter of time before she started working on a plantation.
Strange times indeed. I told the 5 year old that she could own the building that housed the friend chicken company, I reminded her that she was smart and could be anything that she wanted to do . She smiled. I extend the same courtesy to you , you were meant for so much more than a job to pay bills . You can rule your destiny.
