Yes, I do understand that this question is probably not going to be easy to answer. But, I figured it was worth a shot. So here it goes...
I am 20, a mom of a two and a half year old, and newly married. Now that I am almost 21, I feel like it is time to assess my life and what I want it to be. I am a junior in college, which I am very proud to say because I refuse to be a statistic. I got pregnant at 17, and walked across the stage with my son in my belly. I only took one semester off of school, and I have been working since I was pregnant. But now that I'm seeing a lot of my friends graduate college, and have a real passion, I am super jealous. Jealous for two reasons, I am dying to be done with school, but I majorly want to have a passion. I want to have something that I can't imagine ever quitting.
I am currently working two different jobs on top of being a full time student, AND a full time mommy. One of my jobs is at my dad's funeral home, where I work as a secretary. He is always offering to put me on salary, give me full time. Which is veryyyy tempting. But I hate working there, and I have no urge to be there for the rest of my life. So I know that is out the window for fulfilling my passion in life. I love children, but less so after having my own and realizing how perfect he is, (JK, sorta). I am currently majoring in early childhood development, and I really enjoy the classes that I am taking. My advisor told me that I should stay in classes that I enjoy, and am doing well in. But lately, like most 20 year olds, I am having major second thoughts about my career path. For some reason, I just started considering a wedding planner, or something to do with cosmetics. I have NO clue why cosmetics, or what I would even do in that field.
I'm really just looking for something that I can go to work every morning and not hate my life. I just see my life as way much more than this. Does anyone else feel that way? I'm not looking for someone to tell me what to do, just looking for some friendly advice to finding a passion in life.
