Contemplating the 5 year plan. New Year. New You.

Life: Where to go from here 

I've stopped presonal updates on this blog, but today I feel the need to vent. Sorry and Thank you :)

I need to decide what's important. Where do I see myself in 5 years and how am I going to get there? Will I become a problogger, cake decorator, or still be creating birthday outfits? Maybe, I'll become a party planner. IDK... but I do know I'll still be married to my meant to be and I will have kids 5 years older :)

I think I am at a crossroads in life. I do not see myself creating tutus for the next 30 years, but I can't give it up. I see cakes in my future, but I hate to bake. I love blogging, but my creative ideas are getting low.

Now, back to the question... What do I really want to do with my life? I am a Registered Dental Assistant (incase you didn't know) and I know I do not want to go back to that. I probably will not even reregister when it expires this time around. I like being my own boss, but I can not decide what business I want. It has to be creative. That's all I know.

I'm so envious for sisters who share the same creative outlet. My mother is very creative. She has carpal tunnel and can not use her hands to create due to the pain. She taught me so many creative things like Procelain Indian Dolls, Mums, Candy Bouquets, and so much more.  I have no sisters, nor do I have creative best friends. My best friends are wonderful, although they have no creative bones in their bodies and do not have any interest in being creative. We joke about it all the time :) And then there is the creative friends I do have, but I can't see myself sharing business responsibilities with them. Non of my friends are as passionate about creativity as I am or has the drive to actually do something productive with their creativity. They are stay at home moms being creative in their free time. It's frustrating and sometimes it gets hard to do it alone. Did I vent too much?

Thanks... I needed this!

What about you? Where are you in life? Do you have any insight for me? I've prayed for many months and still am indecisive. In the end, I know it's my decision. I, still, would love to hear what you think or how you overcame a crossroad in your life.

Whew.. that felt good :)

Kennedy Family Zoo Trip: 12.31.2011


  1. I feel the same way as you Ray. I've been spending alot of time praying for God to show me what He wants me to do with my life. I love being a SAHM but sometimes i feel like I want to do so much more. I want to help people and spend time with those in need. Cake decorating has become something i HAVE to do in order to have extra money to play with. I dont really have a passion for it anymore and I dread doing it most days. I feel that I am wasting my talent if I stop doing it but see no other way once we have another kiddo.
    Hang in there, im sure in time God will put it in your heart what you are meant to do.
    && we really need to hang out, i miss you!

  2. Aww.. Kay, I'm so sorry! I didn't know you lost your passion. I've been there. I love doing cakes (most the time) but with the prices we charge it's not worth it. So much time and very little profit. I don't promote my cakes.

    I miss you too. Come hang out with me anytime! Maybe one of your weekly outings that's in your resolution list :)

  3. I think you should just do what makes you happy as long as it's making you happy! Atleast until you figure out what it is you want to do, ya know? Maybe your creativity is going to lead you where you'll want to be, you just don't know where that is yet! I could absolutely see you being a party planner though! Or owning a boutique or something like that! I would love to have a bakery, but I just don't see that happening within the next 10 or so years.. lol.
