I am having a period of indecision in my life right now.
What is my purpose?
Should I find a focus in life? in work?
How shall I do that?

When I finished college, I asked myself these questions, and I haven't yet found a satisfactory answer almost 13 years later.

Have you out there figured it out? You know, all of it?

Have any tips?


  1. i don't think we ever figure it out! which is what keeps us on our toes...

  2. I feel the same way. Should I really be satisfied in my current job? That is 9 to 5 but isn't anything spectacular?
    When am I going to make enough time for the things I want to do instead of putting it off?
    Hard questions.
    I think sometimes you just have to go for it and realize that sometimes you fail and sometimes you succeed.
    I think I will ponder this as I finish my caffeinated beverage...

  3. Not only have I not figured it out, but I'm pretty sure it changes every year or two. Right now, I think the best way to live is by trial and error. That way if it doesn't work out at least you tried SOMETHING. Granted I haven't always lived by this ethic. In fact, I rarely have and now feel I've wasted a good many years. But I'm trying to change that.

  4. Hum. I think we sense those transitions when another is going to school and it's so hard to figure out what's best- for me, the kids, the hubby, the community. Goodness.

  5. I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up, so I just keep trying new things. I may never figure it out, but I'm having fun. That's the important part.

  6. I'm sorry you're struggling with indecision right now. I think the fact you are thinking about it shows you are living proactively and intentionally as opposed to living reactively.

    If it helps at all, your felting class was wonderful and your gifts of crafting and teaching were a blessing to my family. My daughter came home from your class and was so excited with the things she made she immediately showed her younger brother and sister. All of us spent the most beautiful Sunday in front of the fire making felt crowns. It was such a lovely day and my kids were so happy and proud of their ability to create.

    Thank you for sharing your gifts with us.

  7. And the winter, oh the winter... there's nothing like five months of winter to give you pause, and make you wonder why, oh why.

    You've got lots of purpose. You're doing it everyday and it matters. A lot.

    Keep it up, and keep your eye on the spring shine!
