How I let my life pass me by…….

How I let my life pass me by…….

I never had any career goals for my future, I was just living in the present time. Now when I think back I want to hit that girl upside her head.  I am now a 33 year old mother of 2, going through a divorce, have no job and no clue on how to pick myself back up.  I surf the web on the right career choices for me. I have worked in a manufacturing job for the last 12 years just to make money for my family. I never wanted to do that as a career. Now I want to do something with my life, make my children proud of me, live a great life doing something that I love. Where do I start? How do I pursue a career when I have to support my children and me now? My hobbies are Photography, Writing, and Blogging about nail polish and nail art designs. How can I turn my passion into a career? I have been checking out creative writing, and communications degrees online, maybe that’s something I would like to do. I love dolphins also, but that is major training and schooling. I know nursing is a great field to get into but I couldn’t be around sickness and I just don’t have the passion to do that kind of thing. I let my life pass me by and now I don’t know how to live it. How do you pursue a dream when you don’t know what that dream is? It’s crazy at my age to be saying “I don’t know what I want to be when I grow up” 


  1. I commend you for wanting more for yourself and your kids. I'm 35 and am back in school to be a PC tech. It's never too late! There are plenty of resources out there to help pay for school. Don't let the cost keep you from doing it. Some of my classmates even get money back from their grants. There are some great online opportunities, so definitely see what your options are. I'm always here to bounce ideas off of, so don't hesitate. Good luck!

    1. Thank you Donna, It is a little scary going back, but exciting also. It's like I get a fresh start =)
