Have you ever said to yourself, "I must have ADD! I can't focus on any one thing for any period of time. I'm bored easily and I have all these great ideas and I don't implement any of them." I say this to myself alot. ALOT. Let's be realistic: I don't have ADD. I'm not disorganized, I'm not reckless, I don't have marital problems, my listen skills are great, I'm not extremely distracted, I can start tasks, I definitely know how to relax, I'm punctual, not angry and I can prioritize.
I feel my problem (after laying on the couch and psychoanalyzing myself) is I don't know what I want out of life & who I am. My career is an HR Manager. I didn't chose this profession, it chose me. I fell into it when I was 20 & pursued it with zest & vigor. Now, 20 years later, I don't like it so much. It's not for me. There are bits & pieces of it that I like, but not enough to say, "this is what I want to do until I retire."
I've decided that in my 40th year, (which begins on 4/18/12 and will go through 4/17/13) I have to find me and my next profession. I'm sure my DH would still like me to have a 'corporate' job, where I receive great benefits! But I'm not sure that is for me in the long haul. Let's face it - there isn't any corporate loyalty to the workers, so why should I be loyal to a corporation? I think of them as stepping stones in my journey of life.
This blog is going to reflect my thoughts & progress my journey as I venture to find myself and my next career for the next part of my life. Thanks for sharing the journey with me.
