Fadra asked a very intriguing question for this week’s Streams of Consciousness Sunday. Have you read my mind, dear lady? Coz you totally nailed it! Not only that, Jen from World Moms Blog asked Is there something you feel passionate about but aren’t doing anything about?
Have I reached my prime?
Sadly, I don’t think so. Those calling, those passions, those bliss…they are still pretty much a jumbling blur of images in my mind that I haven’t answer. Maybe I need to decipher them out one by one using what feels right.
Lately, I’ve been contemplating on my career…on where I want to go. Maybe turning 33 did that to you – who knows – but it leaves me questioning about what I really want to accomplish in this lifetime.
Yes, my career paid the bills and I truly enjoy it but is that what I really want to do for the rest of my life? I don’t think so. Actually, I’ve been thinking a lot about changing career path all together because after 12 years, I am hitting a smack of reality that things are just not the way they were.
“Is it wise to follow your dream at this age?” and “But you have a child to feed, you are a single mom after all!” are mere lines that clouded my judgments in making changes of my career. And the guilt would set in, the mind war begin.
Starting something new is scary…it’s daunting, especially when you are unsure. It’s out of my comfort zones completely yet I’ve been yearning to do more than this.
Maybe when I can get a clearer picture then I can decide on which path to choose.
Then I can smile knowing I will have a legacy to leave behind, something that came from the heart not from working 12 hours a day.
Have you reached the prime of your life? What do you want to be your legacy?
