What do you want to be when you grow up?


Val here, just trying to wake up and stay focused at my day job. Have you ever wondered if you’re doing something meaningful with your life? Well, I’m currently going through this right now. I don’t know if it’s a mid-life crisis or menopause, lol. Or am I just looking for a change. I’m at an age now where I want to start a new career and make a go of a whole new life. I have one child still at home and on her way to college in a couple of years. And I ask myself, can I afford to start all over in my career and do something that I love, instead of going to a “job” every day? So, I jokingly tell my family and coworkers, that I don’t know what I want to be when I grow up. I’m currently working two jobs so that maybe next year, or a couple of years, I can afford to dive into something that I love to do.

But what will that be? I still would desperately love to open my own bakery/deli, but the market is saturated with bakeries here in Indy. No kidding, there’s a donut shop, specialty cake shop, or cupcake bakery on every corner here. And I ask myself, is it worth the risk to dive in to something that literally every one is doing? Or I could go back to school and pursue a career in something totally different. But, that’s the thing, I don’t know what I would like to do. I love to bake, sew, quilt, crochet, and pretty much anything creative. But do I need a degree for that? And can I make a living doing what I really love?

I need some serious advice, some career counseling, or a kick in the pants. Any volunteers? Anyone?


Have a Blessed day,

Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect. (‭Romans‬ ‭12‬:‭2‬ ESV)
