“you should try blogging”

The words my mother told me as we sat in the kitchen discussing (for the millionth time) what I should do with my life. Let me preface, I am 26 years old… I have a 15 month old daughter and have been married 7 months (you do the math with what came first). I work part time for a tech company, part time as a bartender and of course full time mother, wife, cook, maid, etc., I am nearing the end of my 4 year career with my day job, which is very bittersweet. For the first time in my life I can actually say I don’t know what I want to do with my life.

” You’re 26 years old, you should know what you want to do with your life, and have a career your passionate about” my 24 year old brother said to me a few weeks back.

But do I really have to know what I want to with my life this exact moment? Do I want to start over with a job I probably won’t like, working 40 hours a week, sitting at a desk and staring at a screen and punching keys ALL. DAMN. DAY. ?

Maybe this blog will be the perfect outlet to help me figure out what it is I want to do with my life. Also, if there is anyone out there that has been or is currently in this situation.. please reach out to me so I know I am not alone/crazy.
