BLOGGING 1/30: What Am I Doing Here?

BLOGGING Challenge: Day 1 of 30

What Am I Doing Here?

The short answer is –
I was looking to do a 30 Day challenge.  This is my next challenge: 30 Days of Blogging. 30DayChallengeAccepted_Blogging01

Now, the long answer –
I’m in between jobs. Technically, I paused my career to focus on my family and it’s time to go back to a full-time job. While I’m taking the actions required to return to the work force, my heart isn’t there. Part of it is still wanting to be with my kids every minute of the day, but most of it is wondering if all that effort I put into my higher education and years working my way up the ladder… if this field was what I was truly meant to excel at or just something I happen to fall into.

So, I’m here because of a recurring conversation about my career, trying to address the adage: “Do what you love. Love what you do.” The sad realization is that I don’t have a passion for anything specific. I mean, I know what I’m good at, but I don’t know what I’m great at.

Some people just have it – they cook instagram worthy dishes, sing covers better than the original version, do magical makeup tutorials, or put together effortlessly cute outfits. They have a wealth of knowledge, are motivating, or have strong opinions, no filter and a thick skin. How did they figure it out? And how can I?

When I get in these ruts, I look for something new to explore. Sometimes it comes in the form of a vacation, in a new class, or a DIY project. This time around, it’s coming in the form of yet another 30 Day challenge.

Then I realized – I’ve started so many of these mini-programs, tell my friends about, but never complete them. Now here’s a 30 Day Challenge I will be held accountable for because for the first time, I’m logging it.

Actually, I’m blogging it.
