I Have absolutely no ...

I have absolutely no idea what I want to do with my life. I know that I want to help people, I want to be a good person. But I am really struggling with making a decision with what to do career-wise. There's just too much that I want to do and only one thing has been constant since I have been a young child - being an author. But we all know that it's rare one can be successful following this dream, so I'm trying to decide on something a little more solid.

At the moment, it's a toss-up between something in the field of psychiatry, possibly helping troubled children. Or going to university and studying literature and language. I want to study alot of things so am even contemplating spending my entire life just learning. But most importantly of all, I want to be the best mother to my son that I possibly can. I want his childhood to be magical.

If you haven't already why not pick up something by Barbara Sher like Refuse to Choose or Wishcraft. It might help you in moving forward with some of your desires.

I do most of the things you say you want to do. I knew I wanted to make a difference in the lives of children living in desperate circumstances, and I wanted to expand my mind as far as possible without drugs. I'm a chef, i volunteer once a month at a United Way facility, teaching kids to cook (adults too), my novel is almost done being proofed. My children are unfortunately so spoiled by their good fortune that they cannot see it.- so no luck there. One day they will see, but I expect it won't be any time soon.
