Writer's Block

Normally I have things in my day that will inspire me to write... I haven't had anything in 2 weeks!!! I don't know what is going on. I know I have been busy, but usually something will happen that will give me an idea.

So, I am just writing to write at this point :) Hoping that inspiration will come.

If you ever take a writing class one of the exercizes they make you do is an exercize where you just write, you keep writing until something comes to you.

This is my attempt....

When I grow up...

When you are a kid you think of what you want to be when you grow up. The possibilities are endless.... A rock star, doctor, lawyer, PR exec... Then adulthood comes and the possibilities are not so endless. I work for an insurance company. No one ever says, "When I grow up I want to work in Property and Casualty insurance answering peoples stupid questions all day." I have never heard anyone utter that phrase, but here I am. It is a good job. Benefits are good and the pay is good as well. So, it helps me provide for my family. But what about providing for my soul? OK, I know how cheesy that sounds, but it's what I am feeling right now.

I STILL don't know what I want to be when I grow up... and I am already grown up. Before I had kids I thought about going into PR. I went to culinary school, thought about becoming a nurse. I am all over the place. I  take those online career assessment tests all of the time. I really don't think those work. They keep pointing me back to Accounting or Finance. Those are things I am good at, not passionate about.

When we get to a certain age, is it time to stop dreaming? Do we have to take what we have and just live with it? Or is my dream still out there waiting to be realized? And if it is out there, what is it? How do I find it and when does it start?
