What is the best decision to make after all? What decision will get me to where I want to be? Will l regret it? If only I knew what was right and what was wrong I can follow that and be on my way. How do I find the answers? What is right and what is wrong? I don't like not knowing, If only I knew...
Is this relationship going to end up being a waste of my time? Should I have taken that job? I wish I would have taken a certain job years ago, which I believe would have resulted in me being somewhere different then I am now. I don't regret it though. Should I have sacrificed all my extra time I put towards my job I have currently? Everyone's saying its not worth it. Those that I work with say otherwise. Should I have just gone to hair school when I wanted to after High School? What about Real Estate School? I wanted to do that too.
Not knowing what was the best route to go I took my Dad's advice and went to college, graduated with my Bachelors of Science in Business Marketing, from Cal State Long Beach. I worked here in the US, I worked abroad in Australia, and now I'm working for a Union that will give me autonomy.
Time. Time I feel has been taken away from us. I'm not sure if it was the right choice for me, but I've just learned to accept where I am in life currently.
I'm 33 and it seems like when women get to this age we start to evaluate where we are in our lives relating to family and careers. And we hear that it's safer to conceive 35 years or younger (just this statistic that's been floating around). More people are mentioning it to me. Should I? Only if it's right of course. That's my answer. I'm happy and healthy. And there are no right answers to anything. But I wanted answers. I needed guidance. So that's when I came upon this book! 3O LESSONS OF LIVING: TRIED AND TRUE ADVICE FROM THE WISEST AMERICANS, By Karl Pillemer PHD. He has interviewed thousands of elderly individuals who have had successes in their marriage, failures in their marriage, child bearing advice, relationship advice, what type of partner is good for you: one that will be lasting, and more great advice. HA!
I've read this book and it's made me feel more confident in my life choices. I believe these people more then I believe any other statistic or educational study out there because these people lived it. I'm so glad I've left relationships I've had in the past because after reading their elderly advice, I saved myself some hardships. My values are important and I like to be with someone who understands them or thinks the same as me. I'll leave if not. Well by what the elderly said, it's good I did!
There are so many tips and advice out there from scientists and actual studies and surveys that I myself have turned to. Trying to find answers. Trying to see what advice based on family, relationship, and career is best for me. Still lost at 33 by what is best for me, what better advice to get from the people that have been there and done that already? Thousands of elderly were interviewed in portions such as family, marriage, working, relationships and a few other important life choices. This is great.
I do love reading and I believe in Bibliotherapy (therapy through reading), and if you need some advice about life or you are unsure about your choices then check out this book. Hopefully with the information I share I can help someone else. So click this LINK if you'd like to purchase the book on Amazon.
