Last night I read an article about a 28 year old woman. The article was about her career and her professional life. It really struck a chord with me.

Sometimes I feel like such a slouch. I'm a 28 year old woman but yet- no career. Rather than finish school, I chose to get married. I'm now divorced and finding myself back in school.

While I feel extremely grateful that I have the opportunity to start fresh, I can't help but feel a little down about the time that I 'wasted.'

Your right--- it's not time wasted. It was a time in my life that I had to go through and learn from and I know that. But I still feel a little angry at myself for not doing what I really wanted to with my life at that time.

By the time I finish my undergrad and then complete graduate school I'll be in my early 30s. It nearly kills me to think about that. I want the professional life now.

I know that some of you with said professional life would say 'it's not all it's cracked up to be.' I know it's full of stress and deadlines and coworkers/bosses you'd like to smack. But I still want it. I want that satisfaction. That feeling of accomplishment. And I want the damn salary with benefits!!

So whenever I happen upon an article like the one I read last night, I can't help but feel a little twing of pain that it's not me living out my dream in NY.

PS- I'm sure you'll all forgive me for straying from my usual format but it was getting a little boring. And thanks for listening to my 'wo as me' post.

you just have to take things in life as they come. it doesn't always go as planned. trust me!
but you will get to where your going. the journey is the fun and challenging part. don't be ready for it to be over yet.
