I am coming to the end of my work contract and I am yet to find something to do with my life.
For the last 2 months, I have had people constantly asking me what I want to do with my life. Or ‘What do you want to do when you wake up every morning?’ It’s safe to say the answer to both those questions is not work. Waking up in the morning, getting dressed and going to an office is not what I want to do with my life.
I want to travel, not as a job but for myself. I want to write, not for money or fame but just for me. I want to dance, sing, draw, paint, do some gardening, research topics, cook, bake, all for me. I don’t want my passion to pay my bills, I want them kept separate. I want to be able to enjoy them without stress and anxiety. I want to come home from work and then pursue my passion as a stress reliever.
So here I am, having absolutely no idea what career path I want to pursue, with two and a half months left until the end of my contract. I wish people would tell me what job they think I should be doing based on my skillset instead of asking me what I’m passionate about.
Thank you for reading.
