No answers, just more questions.


 

I have finally hit the school holidays after a hectic few weeks, months, term. I've had two days of almost solitude and in that time I have realised that I'm not going to be able to put off thinking about the next phase in my life, particularly my working life.

It's hard to believe but I only have two subjects left of my Masters. I've been doing it for two years and I'm done to the final couple of months. This leads me to consider question one: Was completing a Masters simply a nice distraction (and now it's time to go back to reality) or am I going to be able to use it?

There are currently some opportunities, paid and voluntary that I'm currently thinking about applying for, they are generally part time, or short term etc. Question two: Is it actually feasible to leave my very secure and well paid position to pursue this vague notion I have about 'finding my niche'?

It is true that God can use me wherever I am. Question three: Should I be more grateful for where I am and what I have now and learn to be satisfied in that?

I'm scared.

  1. Q1) Was completing a Masters simply a nice distraction or am I going to be able to use it?
    Both...it looks great on a resume.

    Q2) Is it actually feasible to leave my very secure and well paid position to pursue this vague notion I have about 'finding my niche'?
    Yes it's feasible but not on a vague notion.

    Q3) Should I be more grateful for where I am and what I have now and learn to be satisfied in that?
    Possibly.
