what's next?

After 3 months of unemployment I have found myself thinking a lot about what I really want to be when I grow up. I'm not sure I know. I know I am no longer very passionate about what I do. There are moments when I love it, but do I see myself doing this for the next 25 years? Not so sure. Is it something I am really good at or have my managed to fake my way along for the last 10 years? But if not the ad biz, then what?

What can I do? What do I want to do? And, how much am I willing to give up in the short term to have a happier long term?

I know its been a rough 3 months....even though you have said you are "fine." leaving/loosing a job and not knowing what is next is an incredible shitty feeling and as a friend my heart goes out to you. We start to 2nd guess ourselves deep down...WE ALL do this at many levels! You are NOT a have put your heart & soul into your career life and are a wonderful & talented ad chick!! I also think you are a very talented writer...journalism is your passion..explore that? Just know that you are NOT alone in the thoughts of what to do/be when "I" grow up or is this truly the life I want!!!!
