What I Wanted To Be When I Grew Up

Have you ever dreamed that you could have a really cool superpower? I’ve done the same thing but in all reality rather than being like a superhero I’ve always dreamed of being like a witch. Some may say that’s a dream come true for me, but that’s besides the point.

When I was younger one of the shows that I loved watching was that show Charmed on the CW with Prue (Shannen Doherty) Piper (Holly Marie Combs) Pheobe (Alyssa Milano) and later Paige (Rose McGowen). I definitely loved Prue the most. In that show their last name was “Halliwell” and I used to go around saying that I was Rosalie Halliwell. I wanted to be one of the Halliwell sisters. I later decided that I wanted to marry someone with the last name Halliwell so that I could truly be a Halliwell. I don’t think that is going to happen.

I always thought that it would be fun to be a good witch. I wanted to have Prue’s powers. I wanted to be able to control this with my mind through telekinesis. I went as far as Googling how to actually become a witch and become telekinetic. As you can imagine, I was a very imaginative eleven year old.

I thought that all of their powers would be cool and when Piper had her child Wyatt he was the most powerful and he had all of their powers plus some because he was half witch and half white lighter. I think that’s what I would want to be and that is what I would pretend in my head. To have the power to want the remote and to simply hold my hand out and say “remote” was incredible appealing.

One time I went to a local bookstore and I bought a bunch of Wicca books before I wanted to try to train myself to be a real witch. As you can imagine that isn’t how it went. I wasn’t able to become a witch like one of the Halliwells, but I can always use my imagination.

If anyone was granted the opportunity to be a witch, what would you want your power to be?
