THIS WEEK’S QUESTION:
What are you currently struggling or grappling with in your life?
There are many things that I tend to struggle with in life. Don’t we all? I think the thing that I am currently struggling with the most is what I want to do with my career. What do I want to be when I grow up? I have posted about this before, and have mentioned things time and again because it is a constant struggle in my mind.
I have my BBA in Real Estate, and while I enjoy the Real Estate industry, I haven’t found my niche that I am really passionate about. So now I wonder, have I chosen the wrong field? What else would I do? Currently I am doing some GIS research, which I love and find fascinating. However, I also am an executive assistant, and that I do not enjoy. Most of my days lately have been spent booking trips, running errands, printing documents, getting documents signed, etc. I want to get back to real work again that means something. Not doing things other people do not want to do or don’t have time to do. I didn’t go to college to book someone’s flight or run their car to get an oil change. I let it frustrate me most days, and it isn’t healthy.
While I am very VERY thankful to have a job, I want to have a career. Somewhere that I stay for years and retire at. Somewhere I can move up and build at. Somewhere that I am doing things that actually matter.
The thing is, I don’t know what that is. What is it that I would enjoy doing? Work is called work for a reason, it isn’t called fun…so I do not have unrealistic expectations….I just know that there has to be something out there for me to do that I enjoy and can grow in.
Do you have a job/career that you love? How did you decide that is what you wanted to do and how did you get started in it? Sometimes I feel that I am so behind in this stage of my life. That I am the only person who hasn’t gotten their crap together yet!
