xx 28 and Don't Know What I Want To Do
« Thread started on: Mar 9th, 2016, 8:08pm »

Hello and thank you for having me on this forum, I have read a few threads and it seems to be a great little community.

Here is my short story..

So I am 28 years old, male, and have lived in Iowa my whole life. I grew up in a small town and now live in a "bigger" small town (150k people). For the last few years, I have been yearning to go some place else, and do something different. My job isn't highly paid, but it's okay and the company I work for is amazing, so I believe that's a big thing holding me back. I got it right out of college at 21 and been there since. They have a really good culture, they take care of you, and have a really good retirement program. However, I do not wish to live for retirement by ANY means, and want to embrace/enjoy life while I can.

I currently work in IT and have kind of lost the passion for it.. I could keep doing it but have been trying to figure out what I would LOVE to do as my career. Simply put, I don't know what I want.. but I know I don't know what I want, so I wish to find out. I am just stuck on how to do that. I do have a house and a dog, but other than that am pretty free to do what I want. I dream of just taking off and exploring, trying new things, etc. until reality sets in and I realize I need money and it would be a big risk, and what if I miss my "good" life that I have now. I think I am living in fear of "what if I fail and look like an idiot" type thing. I also do love the independence of owning my home and having to go to a different lifestyle scares me.

Has anyone out there been in this situation, and do you have any words of wisdom? I know I didn't give you a ton to go off, so I know it's probably difficult, but anything is appreciated. If you have any questions that would help, please ask!

Thank you,
