Dead End

Hi Everyone,
I've never done anything like this before but I think communicating with people going through similar experiences is a great place to start. So a bit about myself, I'm a 27 year old female living in Melbourne Australia. When I was younger I always had fanciful ideas of what I wanted to be or do when I grew up (as we all do) I started martial arts at the age of 8 and did extremely well until my mother died of cancer when I was 15 years old, because of the stress of what was happening and the fact that I inherited the mother status of the family and had everyone to look after I quit martial arts with the intention of starting again after around a year.....this never quite happened I mean I've tried getting back into different forms over the years but I've never had the motivation of sticking to it. The last 12 years have felt like a second and suddenly I'm looking at myself wondering what I have done with my life, I know I'm capable of doing anything I put my mind to but that's just the problem I don't have any idea what I want to do with my life so I'm wandering around with no direction! I keep waiting for this light to go on in my head like everyone keeps telling me but I'm still sitting here in the dark...

what do you really want in life? always people will tell us we should do this and that, but we're always feeling a little bit out of place doing things that people want us to do. so again I ask you, what do you really want in life? do you want to sit around, or you wanna do something about it?
