I have been attending school on and off since 1987. I raised my children during this time and took off time on and off for jobs. I have always claimed a major in Psychology in Secondary Education and Special Education. I love working with children but lately I am questioning my choices in Career because when I first started I was going to be a nurse and now I am questioning myself on whether or not I am going for the right thing!! I really want both.
What to do?
Spoiler alert! Everyone is frustrated with their life. Everyone wants a time machine. Everyone wants a crystal ball. Youâ€™re frustrated because something inside of you says you took a wrong time somewhere. Join the club. What may make your situation different is that apparently you have been putting the needs of your family before your own for about a decade and youâ€™re worn out. Maybe it is time for a change but that change is up to you. Pouting and complaining about how my life is not what I have envisioned, and where did I get off track is not going to help you move forward. I lend you the a few lines from Robert Frostâ€™s poem â€œThe Road Less Traveledâ€ – â€œTwo roads diverged in a wood, and I? I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference. If that really is what you want, then there is no time like the present. You need to regroup, adjust your value system, get organized and follow through on your dreams. Whatever they may be. Anything short of that is going to leave you living in frustration. But what do I know; I live in the woods, Iâ€™m covered in fur, and I wipe my ass with pine cones.
