One of those days

Today is one of those days where I wonder what I'm going to do for the rest of my life.
Where I know that sitting at a desk ALL day might be the death of me.
Where I wonder what I could do that would make me genuinely happy.
When I think about what my 'dream job' could really be.

It's one of those days where I wonder where I'll be in a year.
Where I want to unplug from life and just live.
Where I want to have a disposable income to blow on traveling. clothes. shoes. pedicures.
Where I begin to really wonder about "stuff"

Am I the only one like this? Does anyone else ever feel this way?

Not at may hate me for sharing my opinion but I give you permission to just delete my comment. I won't be offended.

Really the happiest job is at home with my kids. It is challenging and there are days when I wonder if I really did ask for this, but at the end of the day it is the most fulfilling place to be. All the money, and extra things begin to pale on the desirability scale compared to kisses from my kids and the fun memories we get to create.

Just a thought.

Go to beauty school... I promise it's the best job. Home with kids is great, but I like to have the extra money and adult conversations and adult friendships as well. You won't regret it.
Love you. Hope you have a good day... I've been in your shoes, and it does suck, but try to look at all the good things about your job/life and not dwell on the bad, and it will make you feel a little better...maybe :)

oh my gosh I'm the same way. I'm glad I'm not alone! And since I'm the same way, I have no advice for you! haha. But I'll check back to see what other people post :)

WOW! That's a smokin hot hat you have there! :o)

So I see you are getting used to adult life! It's just how it is girl! Sometimes is SUCKS! Really makes you miss the days when we had minimal responsibilities, huh?

You will figure it out though. My only advice is...........DO WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY, NOT WHAT MAKES YOU THE MOST MONEY!!!! In the end all that matters is that you are happy and doing something you love. Work can really suck if you don't like it.

I have always told Matt I didn't care what he did for a living as long as it kept him happy and our basic needs are met! I know we all love to shop and have nice things, but in the end they are SO not important.

So get out there and make yourself HAPPY!!!!!! JUST DO IT!!!!

P.S. NICE HAT!!!! :o) (did you notice no one else has noticed? I did, that's right!)

I think you need to keep blogging to make you happy... reading your blog always makes me smile and happy so I hope it has the same reverse affect! I must agree though motherhood is very rewarding... you should join the club! You are already one step closer with your new "Mom car"!

I don't think your dream job can be found in the small college town you live in. I'm pretty sure your dream job would be someone who went shopping, relaxed and went to the beach weekly! Now - that is a life anyone could enjoy because you are doing things you WANT to do and not what you HAVE to do. Does that make sense or do I sound like a rambling fool on your blog?
