what to do from here

Have you reached that stage where you start wondering what to do with your life? I woke up one day and started to realize some realities in my life. Im in my 30s, still single, no relationship (not that I was looking for one, mind you. and I had two relationships in the past). It hits you one day that you've lived for so long and dont have much to show for it. Well, the stark realities of life, you know, purpose, meaning, mission all that stuff sometimes has a way of rising up to the surface of your thinking. It either gets you depressed, inspired or pissed. I decided to be inspired and decide to do something worthwhile.

I'm still young but I have already thought about that. But then again, wth....just live your life the way you want it. Go out! Have fun! if you're mind is occupied by stuff that interests you there'll be no room to think for the the things in you're life that are missing. Goodluck.

We live in a world confused with the aspirations and fears sealed undefined explained by real ... real brutal offensive that greets us as if its only purpose is to strangle the courage too defiant, but ultimately, momentum we break it themselves, for reality is a product of our consciousness: we believe in what we believe, committed what instinct more or less pragmatic urges us to do, it's funny how comforting it is apparent feeling of total control own way of life, the paradox! How can we control the life of her only as long as it's certainly unpredictable determinant? From this equation with two unknown time-and space-only constant element is relativity ....

I did, and I was only 20 years old. And then came year of oblivion where I just stagnated and went with the flow. And then I decided to move, I studied a foreign language which changed the flow of my career and even personal life. And now I guess I have a new task and mission, work on the spiritual life.

OMG...you are same as me. I am 30 and haven't achieved anything yet like a good career, getting marry and mostly I don't my mission in my life. What to do next? I see that money is everyday important so I try to earn money right now. But I encounter obstacles every now and then. I hardly give up. Don't give up. You may rest a while and continue later.

At that age, i was still single . I realized i have to do something for my life - get married and so the next year , i married my husband. I didn't regret it even until now after more than 20 years . It made my life more meaningful. I guess, you have come to that point too.

Hi! I haven't experienced feeling that way yet because there is always so much to do at this time like my job, spending time with my bf, nephews or my best friend, travelling to some places, etc. Maybe you ought to try something you haven't done yet or something you've wanted to do for a long time. Good luck!
