    When Will I Know?

    I've been drifting aimlessly for years, not really taking a clear path in life. I've gone from dead-end job to dead-end job, just enough to get by to pay the bills and keep food in the house. I don't know what I want to do or what I really want to be. Sometimes I feel so lazy I...

    Where Has The Time Gone???

    I don't know what has happened to my life. I'm not unhappy with my life but I feel like I should have done more by now. I have no career, I have never been married (not that marriage plays a huge role). I have traveled a lot but would like to travel more but mostly I want to make...

    It's All About The Journey Anyways

    In my own opinion part of what causes us anxiety about being directionless is being too focused on an end and not appreciating where you are in the now. Having said that I am right now at a point in my life where I feel like I am just moving sideways. In that day in day out is an...
