With 28 years and hundreds of humbling experiences done and dusted I'm at a loss. I can't help feeling that I should be doing something more. That I should be achieving more. Not in relation to anyone else but in relation to me. I set myself a lot of really challenging goals, somehow managed to achieve them all and now I struggle. For three years all I wanted was to successfully complete my PhD, be a mum and be engaged in meaningful work. I've done that - save the motherhood part, but that's beyond my control. I've carefully combed through my journals and notebooks, sorted through the goals I've had for myself over the years but I'm still left wondering - where to from here? The reassuring part in all of this is that I'm not being hard on myself. I have 'work' that keeps me happy and engaged, and just because it doesn't fit neatly into a career path doesn't make it any less important or authentic. It's my path, even though I don't always know where I'm going. All these paths seem to be leading to happiness and contentment, and that's not a bad direction to be headed in, is it?
How about you, where to from here?
