Quarter Century Crisis: What am I doing with my life???

Quarter century crisis, I have seen this term around a lot recently. It has been defined as a period of life where one has feelings of doubt and are confused about the direction their life is heading in. One is then seeking out their path in life, I guess you could say. They are essentially confused wonderers.
Here are some signs you may be suffering from the century life crisis yourself in accordance by my own feelings at the moment

  1.   Conflicted emotions wanting to find a job and are actively looking for one but is relieved to not be wasting your time doing something you don’t want to do. if you are working you feel as though you slowly dying inside... wasting your life and away.
  2.      Frustration. From the age of two to earlier twenties.  I knew exactly what to do and what was coming next, I had a routine pass present exams and prepare for the set of exams  in the upcoming year. However now that isn't the case. Now  you are trying to adjust wondering what you want to do maybe even deciding to not do what ever it is you studied.
  3.   Fear of the unknown; this is tied with the point above. I am excited but more so terrified about the endless possibilities. Anything can happen you see and that's a problem in my head. Its unknown and of good could happen but so can a lot of bad.
I most definitely fit in this wonderer category. A year ago I completed a degree in philosophy. Yup, you read correctly philosophy and now I am trying to discover exactly what it is I would like to do with my life. Now I know a lot of people reading this are thinking, why did she study philosophy?  Well I just did what I liked and am going to continue doing that … once I discover what exactly that is … at this point.
There is also the of issue my luke warm or more like cold Christian life that NEEDS to be addressed. Yep I lack discipline I want to be doing everything, well almost everything because it's there to be done, live a fulfilled life.  The reality of the situation is however that I need to work on my relationship with God, put in time  and I can't do almost everything if I intend to do that.... sigh... shrug. 

Yup that's what I'll be doing here. Thanks for reading.

  3. I could relate alot with the points #2 and #3. There are so many possibilities out there but you don't know how the cards will play. I guess that's part of the adventure we call life. I love that you wish to get more serious about your Christian life, that's the best place to start in living a life of purpose. All in all confused wonderer you will be fine.
