I'm 31 years old and I lack passion. While many of my old and current friends, as well as my husband, seem to be making enroads in their lives, I feel I am at a standstill. I really am not that enthused with my current job and I don't have a hobby to speak of.

I love my husband dearly, but I am a truly a bit envious (dare I say jealous even), of that fact that he knows which direction he wants to move in and is able to execute that.

He loves football and always wanted to coach. Currently he coaches my son's little league football team. This his is 3rd year coaching. When he is thinking of a new play for his boys are discussing potential that a player has, he truly is in his element. He is just so passionate about it.

Also, he's always wanted to join the military and teach. Well, he is currently in the national guard reserves (that's as much leway I was willing to give regarding that),w which he loves and he's submitted several applications for teaching positions in the immediate area. Not to mention, that him being a teacher could in fact open more doors for him to coach high school, which is what he really would like to do.

As I stated, I am envious of him and some of my other friends who seem to have settled on a career, and even if they aren't exactly where they want to be, they at least are on the path to realizing their dreams.

At times I just feel as though I am walking through life aimlessly. I go to work, I come home and take care of the kids, cook dinner and start all over. I don't love my job. I've only been here about 10 months, transferring divisions within the same department because I was not happy in my previous position of 4 years.

I have no idea what would make me happy and don't know where to begin to get an idea of what would make me happy. I realize that many people are happy at that job. I mean even if I don't like my job, it would be nice to have a hobby that I enjoyed. I volunteered as a Team Mom for same team my husband and son participate in, but that just wound up feeling like a second job to me. While I did enjoy the comradory with some of the other ladies, I really didn't enjoy the job. Although I am still techinically the team mom again this year, I had been contemplating relinquishing that title and think I will do just that this week.

Any others out there just feel/felt completely lost? What are you doing/did you do to get some sense of direction?

    Thanks Lana.

    I know there are many people that dislike there job, but have hobbies they love to do.

    There are some activities that I love to do, so I will have to look into that further. I started working out (again). I joined a gym and love the hour or two I can get away from the family and just be by myself. Just some me time. Although I think I am still in search of something else, going to the gym has been a good starting poing and stress reliever for me.
