I'm 24 yrs (25 in May), and I've still not found my 'calling', or even settled on a 'life goal'. I became a mother when I was 17 yrs, and ever since I've just been 'Mummy'... I've got three kids now, and I'm happy. Though other people in my life have pointed out that I should be getting back into education, training, ETC to further myself, and to eventually get a career, I've found it near on impossible! Every day my head is filled with kid stuff... It's like all I'm 'programed' to do is cook, clean and bring up my kids. I'd like to have something for myself in the future, a nice job... Nothing fancy! LOL. But I really can't settle on anything at all! So I'm asking, is this normal? Have I stuck myself into this mental rut by just being a mother and nothing else? I'm happy being a mummy but I know the kids will grow up, and I'll have to change!!!
You might want to write down all the things you love doing and see if any of them might lead to some sort of career down the road. It sounds like you still have hectic mommy years left but there is no reason why you can't figure out what your strengths are now and do research on the possibilities. You also might want to look at the link below and see what jobs will be in demand in the future and if any of them match your interests. GL!!
