I want to...

do more with my life.

This post has been a long time coming. I was talking with Rowdy Red last night about what I want to do with my life. And while there are some people that can say exactly what they want to do..I can't. I was telling him about how I don't get much fulfillment from my current job. Which can easily create a salty attitude towards my day to day life.

There are some days that I feel like I am waiting for life to start. Not that my life isn't fulfilling, but I feel like I have conquered this level (pretend this is a video game) and I am ready for the next challenge. If this were Super Mario Brothers, I would be fighting to get to the princess in the castle but I am stuck stomping mushrooms everyday.

I just feel like I need a little more. I know God's timing isn't the same as mine so I need to make changes/additions to my life in order to feel fulfilled. I wake up everyday to go to a job that doesn't ever leave me feeling very proud of myself. When I worked with kids, even if it was a tough day, I knew that I made a difference in some little 2 year old life. And everyday I had some hilarious story of what one of the kids said. 

So I guess my point is this..I can either continue on this path and maybe volunteer in some aspect that will involve kids, or I can start looking for a new job that involves kids. Teaching...maybe. Social Adoption...dream job.

  1. I feel like that a lot lately too. I think it has to do with a lot more than just career paths though, although jobs can play a huge role in leaving people with the sinking feeling that they're not going where they want to go. I feel like the cure for me is to either pop out a baby or move somewhere else (or both). Lol, that's my brilliant solution.
