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. 4 days ago

I am a naturally kinetic person. It started with my first ballet class at five, and I’ve been moving ever since. In high school, I was a hardcore dancer. I never realized how talented I was until now. I don’t know why, but I had no confidence about my abilities and I stupidly let a stranger talk me out of pursuing a career in dance.
I regret that. Every day, I regret that. So many of my dancer friends followed their dreams, and many of them dance in professional companies. I don’t know if that’s the lifestyle I would have necessarily wanted, but it should have been my decision to make, not someone else’s.
It’s hard to find advanced dance classes for adults where I am, and sadly, I’m not as good as I once was. But I’ve always remained active. Since then, I’ve taken yoga, pilates, tai chi, kick boxing, aerobics, zumba, step, in addition to ballet and modern when I could make it out to the city. I’ve taught preschool gym and worked as a personal trainer at a gym and at people’s houses. I’ve recently taken up hoop dance and I love it.
I didn’t like working as a personal trainer. The atmosphere was a little too competitive and there was too much selling and down time. But I was younger and maybe not mentally ready to be a trainer. I loved, absolutely loved teaching preschool gym, but I didn’t make enough money to make a career out of it. If I knew how, I would. I’ve been thinking about getting my group fitness certification to teach pilates or hoop dance, or my own personal workouts.
I’m temping as a file clerk right now, and I can’t picture myself sitting all day for the rest of my life. This is the first time I’ve ever had a chair at my job and I loathe it. As much as I always say I want a normal 9-5 like everyone else, I probably can’t do it. I feel that if I’m lucky enough to have this reservoir of kinetic energy inside of me, it would be a waste not to take advantage of it.
So what do I do with all of it? 4 days ago
years ago I had this same goal on here. I marked it as complete because I thought I had it figured out. Wrong. I still don’t know.
There are almost too many options for me and that is why most of my friends are starting their careers and I still haven’t gone back to finish college. I’m good at a lot of things, but I don’t know what my passion is. I’m a dancer and fitness enthusiast at heart, but I love biology and chemistry, too. I can picture myself doing fieldwork as an archaeologist or grading papers for a history class. I love to travel. I love making smoothies. I’ve thought about being a health or sex educator. I’ve thought about starting up a hot cocoa company. I’ve thought about opening a bar or a cafe. I’ve thought about being a fitness coach. I’ve thought about being a flight attendant.
I’ve thought about so many things, but I don’t what would make me happy. How do I just pick something and decide? 5 days ago
I did apply to uni, but I’m still not sure if that course I chose was right for me, I just feel like the things I would love to do aren’t things I could do and it has a lot of obstacles, confidence, money and so on. Any advice? 1 month ago
Just passed my national registry test for EMT, working on getting my state license and looking for a job. I never thought that the medical field would be for me, but I’m really liking it and am looking forward to advancing in this area. Spent so long confused and floating around having to listen to lectures from everyone or waiting for that dreaded question of “when will you be done with school?”. It’s hard to finish something when you have absolutely no direction. Happy with my career goals now, just wish the big revelation happened a few years earlier. 2 months ago
because whenever I have to make a slogan for a project or a propaganda poster, I come up with something great really quick. 3 months ago
Just finished my EMT class and will take the national registry test in a few weeks. I spent many years trying to figure out what I wanted to do. Its nice to have a direction to go in. 3 months ago
How I did it: I wanted a big family and some people may say that we do have one, with four biological children, but I always thought there was room for more (hence the name)! Baby number five did not happen for us and so I decided I would like to help children who were going through difficulties.
