Do you ever feel like this?

Sometimes I feel like I am just here. I have no idea what I want to do in life. Nothing has ever made me say, "hey I want to do that for a living!". My husband is starting his photography business and he wants me to be apart of it, but I don't think thats my calling...anyways have you ever felt like you were just there...

  • Yep! Totally. I think the meaning of life is to try and find a meaning to life. I didn't go to college right out of high school because I didn't know what I wanted to do. So many of my friends have dropped out because they realized they wanted to do something else.

  • I have felt like that before after taking a nap and I was in a deep sleep. But I think of what is more important (either temporal or spiritual) and why I am in the situation I am in and revert back to my life. I may not know what my point in life is at that time, but I understand what it is later on, reflecting back on it.

  • See, I have the opposite problem...I know exactly what I want to do, it's a matter of finding the means to do it!
    However, right before I found out I was pregnant with my oldest, I was feeling lost and like my life had no meaning. I worked at a jewelry store and felt so superficial. I'm the praying type, so I prayed that the answer as to what to do in life would sort of slap me in the face...a week to the day I got a postive pregnancy test...creepy, huh?

  • I have felt that way. I have several things that I am interested in and fairly good at (photography..LOL) but I am not PRO at any of them, so I tend to not do it. I do love to buy, sell and create things, so I likely will be a person who has my hand in a few different pots. My kids are now getting old enough that I have a little bit of time. I also need to make income to pay for one of my childs private am going to have to come up with something.
