Hello and happy Tuesday! It is POURING in Boston. Hope everyone is staying dry!
I’ve been doing a lot of thinking lately – mostly because I continuously get the feeling of being “stuck” in my current situation. Fact of the matter is, I am not “stuck,” I am just bored. Bored with work, unfulfilled and still have yet to find a career that I’d like to grow into. I have SO many different interests and I am beginning to realize that I have never allowed myself to hone in on what I truly ENJOY doing.
There does not seem to be ONE thing that I like more than everything else, but no matter what, I always come back to the conclusion – that I would really enjoy a job where I was HELPING people directly on the regular. What I am doing now does not cut it. Scheduling meetings is fine, but not fulfilling. Filing is fine, but not fulfilling. Etc. This career path holds no true meaning for me, but it is “fine.” But the more I think about it, the more I realize that simply doing “fine,” is not how I want to live my life.
I’ve known this for a while, but I always scare myself out of making any significant change because of money, usually. Everything is just SO expensive, especially in this area. It’s insane. I’ve constantly allowed my need for financial stability to outweigh my desire to find a career that I am truly passionate about. Well, I am all done with that way of thinking. From this point forward, I am going full out. Pay cuts will be eminent, but quality of life is so much more important to me than money. I just need to stop letting myself get distracted from that point. It’s not worth the stress.
I am in a position now where I am single, (luckily) do not have to pay rent for at least a few more months and have all of my loans in good standing. The time is now.
