When I grow up

I feel really conflicted lately about what I want to do in life and where I want to be heading. I am not sure if I have mentioned on here yet but we are not going to the UK next year anymore. For a lot of different reasons we have had to put our trip on hold for 18 months and now I feel lost. I feel like I need to make decisions whether that is about my career, where we should live or even decisions about what I should be doing in my spare time.

I think I make a decision and within a couple of hours I am back to crippling indecision and an overwhelming sense of just leaving things as they are. That is one thing I don't want to do though, I want a challenge, I want to be pushed further creatively and intellectually. I just need to figure out what needs to change.

  1. Oh, life can be tough sometimes. Sometimes it can help to focus on the littler decisions, and then let the big ones fall into place on their own - they usually do, and then things don't seem so overwhelming.

  2. Hey lovely, there's so much that you can do. I think it's great that you realize what's happening and that you want to make changes. The important thing to be conscious of is not rushing into things too quickly. Find something to do in the interim whilst you figure things out. Volunteer, take a class...something to channel your energy as you slowly worth everything else out. You know you can get in touch when/if you feel like a chat xoxox

  3. We all go through this at one point or another. I always say just take your time and find something you truly love to do. I believe everything happens for a reason and everything will work out in the end.

  4. So many options is the killer! You can do what ever you want to do! Take a deep breath and enjoy this uncertain time.

  5. Everything will work out in the end. I go through periods of time too where I feel indecisive and restless too. Just be open to adventure and new possibilities :]

  8. I think you've already made the first step - you realise you want/need to change something. So many people get stuck in a rut and they don't even realise it until they're in the 60s and look back at their life and go, "Why didn't I ...?"
