I've kind of hit a stumbling block in my career path and don't know what to do now. I worked very hard on my masters degree, got mainly straight A's, and was set to graduate until I got stuck on my thesis. After a year and a half of trying, I've given up on it.
It's taken me a while to accept this, but some things are not meant to be, and this is one of them. I'm not looking for encouragement to keep pushing forward, but rather I'm looking for ways to keep growing and figure out what I really want to do with my life.
I know I want to help people. I do that now, working with students trying to obtain their GEDs, but I mean something different. Or maybe that's a part of it. I'd love to be a life coach or a wellness coach or something like that, but I'm not even sure there are jobs out there for that.
I love to travel, to write, to read. I have a bachelors in communication. I'm only working part-time right now, so I have time to study for something else, to learn a new skill.
What I know is this roadblock isn't going to stop me, I just have to figure out where I go from here. Any thoughts, prayers, or other comments would be much appreciated! It helps so much just knowing my SparkFriends are put there!
