for the past few years, i’ve struggled with trying to pinpoint what i really want to do with my life. some weeks I wanted to be a journalist, or a lawyer. others weeks a social worker, or maybe even a therapist. the list goes on.
when it comes to making decisions (even something as small as my drink flavor) i normally have to mull it over for a looooong time before deciding. even after, i often go through periods of hesitation or doubt that i made the right decision.
three years ago, moving back to dc – and into a job that i didn’t particularly love- should have been a tough decision. but it wasn’t. that decision was easy because it meant that, despite the awful economy, i had a job with a steady pay check. plus, i got to live in dc! i justified any potential doubt with the fact that my life outside of work would make up for anything missing from my job.
and for awhile, it did.
but, i’ve reached a point in my life where it’s no longer enough. i need to feel like i am doing something more with my life – i need to spend the short (and long, depending on how you look at it!) time i have doing something else.
for the past year, i’ve searched for what that else could be. as i hopped around from idea to idea, i became increasingly frustrated with my lack of decisiveness.
but then, i finally found something that stuck.
something that i am passionate about.
something the excites me.
and i can’t wait to share it with you! 🙂
