Life’s Journey, What Happened?

Ever sit back and remember what it was like to be a kid. You know the time when you pretended to be the person who you saw yourself as when you were all grown up. Who was it? What did you do? Now ask yourself this. What happened? Today that is the question that I am wrestling with. In my time of self-reflection I have to ask this simple but complex question of what happened between the time when I was a child sure of whom I was to become and who I am today.

I have yet to discover where things began to make the turn. Sometimes I think about the small (or even large) bumps in the road of life. Did I lose focus on my dream, or was that I just became influenced in other ways. For me I wanted to be a Doctor; I just didn’t want to take all those classes and be in school that long. Funny thing is that for all the years that I did put in to finally complete my degrees I could have been.

So here I am today, far from becoming a doctor, with way to many obligations in my life to fulfill my childhood dream questioning where I go from here. Can someone who lost the way early on find that passion from his or her childhood once again? It seems to me that once the course of life’s journey has been charted that it is ever so increasingly hard to change direction. Not to say that I still want to be a Doctor of medicine anymore but there are some things that I would like to pursue as a career. The question now is how. How do I show my ability to do what I dream? Can I even get in the door or will I forever be labeled as a person with a career in sales? Can you make the change and start to chase your dream, your life’s ambition? Let’s come together and help each other in charting a new course. A life full with happiness and satisfaction.

Finally, if you enjoy what you read please make time to comment or even follow my blog. Also, if you have any suggestions let me know because together we can achieve our life’s journey!

    Great blog… Kind of makes me think about my own life, occupation and journey. I myself have found myself involved in Sales and wonder if my dream job slipped through the cracks. The only thing that I know is that happiness cannot and will not be found in your occupation. You can feel a sense of satisfaction from work, but true happiness is the never ending journey life takes us on. To be content is the only way of being able to hang your dreams on the coat rack and realizing that what you have is pretty damn good. This is where family, friends, marriage and children play the role in filling the void that we may not be able to obtain through work. Great blog Mac.

    I’ve always found that my biggest obstacle is time. I enjoy doing multiple things, but do not have the time to pursue them all as effectively as I need to in order to earn a living.

    To answer you question on changing your occupation: take classes, join clubs, volunteer, read books, find a mentor, start at a lower level and work you way up if you need to. That’s how it’s done… if you have the time.

  3. Agreed, time is something that we need to have a better control over. Here in the US we seem to manage our lives around the clock. Maybe one day we will learn to manage ourselves based on our productivity instead. Good luck!
