What to do?

Thursday, February 03, 2011

So, I am sitting here today wondering about my future. I recently graduated from college in May. I currently have a bachelor's degree in Physical Performance and Sports Studies. As of right now, I work in food service and it's just not working out in my favor. I love the work I do, and I make decent money, but I really want a career change. I want to do something that I went to school for. Here's the problem: I don't know what I want to do. The degree I have makes it hard to find a job. I can't seem to find a job in this field of study. There is so much that I want to do, I just don't know what it is exactly. I'm sure God knows what he wants for me, but I don't feel any sort of calling yet.

I really want to do something in the field of physical therapy or personal training but that would require more schooling and I'm not sure if I want to pay for more schooling. I have considered looking for a job in a nursing home as an activity coordinator or something in that line, but I really want to do something to change the lives of others. Whether that be helping them achieve fitness goals, or helping them start a workout plan. I have been thinking so much about this lately. It has gotten to the point where I can't sleep well at nights because it is all I seem to think about. I don't want a 4 year degree to go to waste. I want to do something I worked hard for but yet, I can't seem to find anything. Do I go back to school and work on getting something that would help my degree? Or do I just keep looking for jobs and wait for something to come up? Or do I possibly do both? It's been the devastating question on my mind for quite some time now!

    Sounds like you have narrowed down what you really want to do. Now figure how to get there. Good luck!

    So tough! If you're not ready to go back to school yet, what about seeing if you can find a job in something like reception for a physical therapist so you can get a bit closer to what you want to do and see the good/bad of the job you're looking at, even if you're not doing it? Maybe that would help you get a clear picture of what the job really entails and then you'd know if going back to school is right for you right now or not.

    God will make your path straight, keep seeking him in it and he will open the doors that are right.
