The last time I wrote to you guys near the end of my post I talked about me in a management position. Believe it or not I’ve been thinking constantly about this and my mind has been all over the place with regards to what field I will enter. I’ve thought about criminology, I’ve thought about painting, I’ve even thought about daycare… So my mind is really all over the place at this point and my confidence is slowly decreasing as I do want to find a final position where I can have retirement in sight… This has always been a challenging thing for me,(finding my life purpose). Remember when they asked us “What do you want to be when you grow up?” Well I am still trying to figure that out!
It’s a beautiful process though, learning along the way what we truly aspire to pursue. Constantly on a search for joy and finding things that bring others happiness; in all honesty, it’s perfect. When I say “it’s” I guess I am referring to the universe. When you look at the big picture of things and think about how ant like we are in the eyes of something larger than our planet, it’s eye-opening.
As of now I am beginning my search for a new career choice, doing everything in my power to find something enjoyable, sustainable, and certainly permanent. By permanent I mean something that will take me to my retirement years enjoyably, something I can look back on and be proud of. Teaching definitely takes the trophy for me so far, I have thought about becoming a nurse as well but I think becoming a teacher is more appropriate for me.
Now What Could I Teach?
- Fitness Bootcamps
- Card Tricks
- Computer Repair
- Creative Writing Flows
As you can see that list was off the top of my head and I am looking at it now thinking how lame I am… Haha! I am awesome I know, but I thought I would come up with a way better list than that! I do have teaching in a school system in mind, but I think I would like to teach at a different kind of school system. Something that involves more one on one instruction and becoming friends with students. I thought about a public school system but I have friends who are teachers and have little to say about that field; from what I have heard it is stressful, overwhelming, and character testing. Now those things do intrigue me but it all depends on what is causing them, loud obnoxiousness prepubescent teens doesn’t really appeal to me… The thought of working with students one on one and helping motivate them to get through the school system and talk to them about what truly makes them happy is something I can see myself doing until retirement. I have always been able to relate to kids, anywhere from 3-18 really; I treat them like humans, not babies, like others tend too.
Any suggestions for me? I would love to hear them!
