    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...

    Has Anyone Found My Road Map?

    I'm 29 years old and I have absolutely no idea what I'm doing with my life or where I am going. You know that old Robert Frost poem A Road not Taken? Well I have constantly taken the road less traveled (not so much anymore) and every time I have to say it hasn't really made any...

    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...

    Except for me, it seems like more people are going. And at 25, time for new (interesting) people coming into my life is limited, or at least that's how it appears to me.
