I am praying for direction. I am in my mid 50s, single/never married. And I am having a tough time getting a career, much less a job.
I have talent in writing, and I’m an amatuer musician. I can do office work, but I get bored easily with that–but it does keep the lights on! I think my biggest problem is that, as I jokingly (?) say is that I don’t know what I want to be when I grow up!
I am job hunting (again), but I’m tired of landing postions and getting bored with them within weeks.I like writing, but those jobs are few and far between.I tried to get certified as a teacher(emergency certification program–I have a BA/English), but I can’t get a full time teaching position so that I can finish the certification (long story–I just don’t seem to “fit” anywhere).
I’m tired of feeling like I’m just surviving, and not really living. The one positive thing is that I have no kids, so I don’t have that burden on top of eveyone else (that is, I’m not scraping to feed and clothe them, etc.–I love kids and have umpteen nieces & nephews that love my cooking!).
Just pray. I can’t keep living like this–I’m getting old, and tired.
