When I Grow Up

So the question of the day/week/month/year for me is…what do I want to do when I grow up?  For some people, this is a relatively simple question.  For others, it just seems to magically fall into place and for many people, things just happen…I think I’ve fit into all the categories somewhere along the line, but now it’s different.  I don’t want to waste time doing something that is so-so or just pays the bills.  I don’t want a job that just seems safe and that is not challenging.  I also want a job that I want to learn more about it everyday, where it doesn’t seem like a “job.”  I’m not obsessed with earning big bucks, although that would be nice!  My main focus is for me to love my job and have a passion for whatever I’m doing.  Sometimes people get so caught up in doing what is easiest, doing something where they don’t have to move, or doing something where they don’t have to go back to school.  I don’t care about any of those things.  In fact, I’m willing to do something a difficult, move, and go back to school if I need to.  After all, the best things in life don’t come easy, right?

I have a few ideas in mind, but I’m not sure.  I feel like I’m getting closer, but it might take some time to figure it out.  I recently had a job interview and was offered a position, but I know that it isn’t what I want to do…I think I need to take the job in the mean time, until I’m sure on my plans.  Although, I feel like I could get really wrapped up in that job and lose focus and that concerns me.  This is a huge pivotal point in my life(as mentioned by a friend).  I feel like when you are taking a leap into the unknown, it might as well be a huge leap!  Yes, I know that people can over analyze things until they are blue in the face.  Yet this is an important thing to analyze!  I am trying really hard to listen to my heart and my gut…not my head.  My head isn’t very smart when it comes to these things!  haha  I feel like the important decisions in your life are best made by your heart and your gut.  It took me awhile to realize this, but I’m starting to understand it now.  This pic sums it up well…
