Still No Clue At 40something.

I don't know what I am supposed to be doing with my life. I have a husband and a teenage daughter but to think I was put on this earth to be just a homemaker (which I am really not that good at) is depressing. I rather repair or put together something than to cook and clean. I can't seem to find a clear direction for myself. I have thought of and tried a couple of things but it wasn't to be. WHAT IS MY TRUE PURPOSE IN LIFE? I don't know and don't think I will ever figure it out on my own. If I have no purpose, why go on? Sad, huh?

I'm new to this and haven't even written my story yet, but this resonates with me, because I feel the same way. I turned 40 last year and seem to be in the midst of a huge mid-life crisis. I can't seem to find anything that I'd love doing. I'll follow your story to see if we may just come up with any new ideas.

I feel the exact same way. I have done so many things and now I am out of ideas. I feel I am drifting in space. I yearn so much every single day of my life to find my purpose but it does not come to me. This has been years and years now that it's been going on.
