My Career Path is in Your Hands. No Really. Tell Me What to Do.

I have been asking myself quite often lately what exactly it is I want to do with my life, as at the ripe age of 28 and in the midst of being pregnant, I feel like I am not doing what I am supposed to be doing.

A close friend recently asked me during a lighthearted conversation what I would be doing if I could do anything in the world (and be qualified for it)…my mind drew a blank, and I came up with a b.s off-the-wall answer of being a zookeeper. Don’t get me wrong, that would be an amazing job, I think, but that’s never really been what I realistically wanted to do.

So I made a list (surprise surprise) of things that come to mind when I think of what I want to do with my life:

  • Write
  • Raise my Children (Well)
  • Make a Difference
  • Make Enough Money to be Comfortable

I currently write online material for a student travel agency, but this isn’t where I will spend my life and I know that.

So, blogging friends, tell me what I can be/should be doing with these 4 attributes in mind.

Yes, basically I am asking you what to do with my life, no big deal. No pressure.

  1. I’d take something you love, (like writing) then do something that is of service to others. Such as creative writing workshops in hospitals, homeless shelters, a local arts charity. It won’t make you rich, but it will give you an amazing sense of satisfaction knowing that you are helping people doing something you love. Just a thought.

      I am definitely liking the idea of a possible creative writing workshop somewhere in my small town, perhaps at our public library. Thank you!
