A good friend of mine & Stewart tried to cheer me up yesterday.
They said that if you can’t figure out what you want to do then figure out what you want to do TODAY.
I guess its the same as taking baby steps, a great technique for any goal. I can never figure out what I want specifically, or always want more or something different.
So what do I want from today?
Honestly, Nothing really. I have been at work all week, plus overtime and today for me should be about relaxing before going back tomorrow.
Usually doing nothing would have bugged the hell out of me but I need to learn to take a step out of stressful life.
So I am going to watch a movie, do some knitting and if I decide I want to do something different then I shall, If not then I won’t.
Inspiration and motivation will come to me I am sure… Hopefully one day. 2 months ago
Most dreams focus on just 2 themes:
1. The fear/regret of the elapsing/-ed time;
2. The nostalgia of the childhood neighborhood:
Like the dream I just had during the nap: on a late Saturday night bus, with all the blur objects passing by out of the window, I was anxious about the almost finished weekend, regretting about having done nothing/played nothing. The bus stopped at my childhood neighborhood, I wandered on the street and tried really hard to reconcile the true fact that I am in another country and the dream fact that my commuter bus took me to my childhood neighborhood. 5 months ago
yep, I guess I need a big picture about how to live my life, not just a shortsighted view of what I need to do for the time being. 5 months ago
So! Here I am about to go into college and I had no clue what I wanted to do as a profession! So I took things into account.
-I want a job that people are happy with.
-I want to help others to the highest extent.
-I want a lot of physical activity.
So as I mulled things over on the interwebs, I found that firefighting would be an AMAZING job for me!
As for the rest of my life, I will spend it helping others and finding myself spiritually. Hopefully ill join the peace corps :) YAY! 6 months ago
Two nights ago, I was sitting in my room alone and bored and angry that I had nothing to do. I was so furious with myself for not only wasting time at that moment, but for doing nothing with my life as a whole.
I’ve spent so much time trying to figure out the perfect career for myself that I’ve wasted so much time thinking and not actually doing anything at all.
It is time to add more doing to my thinking.
I have the broadest background in fitness. I danced for 20+ years, work out nearly every other day, and taught fitness in various degrees for three years. If I go back to school for exercise science, kinesiology or athletic training, I think it will open a lot of doors for me. With any of those degrees, I could become a teacher, a health educator, a physical therapist, a fitness coach. Since it is a health related field and that’s a rapidly growing industry, it offers some promising careers.
My biggest fear about choosing a career path is that it will force me to neglect all of my other interests. But I guess that’s life, isn’t it? I can’t waste time forever. 6 months ago
When I was five, I wanted to be a paleontologist. I was talked out of it because I’d “have to deal with bugs” and I was told that my hatred of bugs outweighed my love for dinosaurs and I’d never make it as a paleontologist.
Instead of people being impressed that a five year old could pronounce words like paleontology and triceratops, they disregarded it. It didn’t matter that I used to go for walks through the woods to dig up bones, it didn’t matter that I used to build my own dinosaur models, it didn’t matter that I got a verbal warning in that church communion class when the teacher told me I couldn’t believe in God AND dinosaurs…and you probably know which one I picked.
None of that mattered. Paleontology was entomology as far as the adults were concerned, so I’d never be able to do it. Because they were big and I was little, I believed them.
I don’t even remember hating bugs that much…
Years later, I wanted to be a professional ice skater. But it “wasn’t ballet and much too hard,” I was told. I believed them.
In college I wanted to major in dance. I spent my entire life taking dance classes up to the pre professional level. I passed the college audition. My college adviser told me it was a bad idea, embarrassed me, told me that I would amount to nothing other than a waitress and talked me out of it. I listened.
When I thought about majoring in biology, I was told it was a stupid major with no career opportunities. When I thought about kinesiology, they asked how could I get a job with a degree no one’s heard of. Exercise Science: are you really that dedicated? Broadcasting: it’s a dead field. Theater: You’re not outgoing enough.
Five years ago, I got a bartending certification so I could go to school during the day and work at night. “Why would you do that?” People asked. “You’re too smart to be a bartender.”
Most recently, I’ve been thinking about going to school for Health Education. I could work in a school or a hospital. Opportunities abound! They said to me: you might be able to get a job, but would you really love it? Will it make you happy?
Why doesn’t anybody support my choices? Why hasn’t anybody supported my choices for as long as I can remember?

During my first few days of unemployment, I’ve been focusing on my health. I think I’ve already lost two pounds from moving around more and sitting down less. I started working out again the week before I got laid off and I’ve done a workout every day since being laid off.
Being active is something I always go back to. How can I make that part of a career?
I wish there was like a list of every possible job in the world. 6 months ago
I’m reading one of my favorite fitness magazines and I’m thinking to myself, I could do this. Not the workouts, of course. But I could write for a fitness magazine. I have the knowledge. I am forever giving nutrition information to my family and exercise advice to my friends. I always loved writing papers for school. Is this something to think about?
I like too many things. 6 months ago
What do I want to do with my life?
Today, I mentioned to bf’s mom that I want to go back to school, but I don’t know what for. She suggested that I go for stage or special effects make up since my Halloween makeup has always impressed her.
It’s not something I ever really thought about…but is it something to consider? 6 months ago
I don’t really have much of a support system. There are people who will encourage me no matter what I do. There are people who will discourage me no matter what I do. There’s no one to offer me honest advice. I know I shouldn’t rely on other people’s insights so much, but it’s hard to see the bigger picture when I am the bigger picture. 7 months ago
