Hobbies and Interests While considering my former and future phases in the life development cycle, I compiled а list of my favorite activities and interests that I never had time to pursue while concurrently pursuing the “ultimate career. “
Upon finishing my list, I realized that my professional life and my personal interests conflicted. This is quite а wake-up call after serving 30 years as а sector over when my heart is truly drawn to natural life between human interaction, animals, plants and country living. How one transition does from а major city to а city that is rural that is smaller?
It’s Can Do?
As а female, the simple answer is to get а “man” who is my sugar-daddy, support me emotionally and financially and, if he has any remaining patience, be my lover also. This scenario is further complicated by the fact I was socialized during the early 1970s and, thus, was indoctrinated into the “feminist movement.” My childhood was saturated with the ideology that I could burn my bra and somehow find professional and personal freedom. I didn’t burn my bra but did “hit the books.”
Book-reading served me during college, served me in school, sustained а career as а technical writer and kept me company when nobody else was around. I could cruise used book shops, visit my local library and look at the pictures, scan the text and twenty years ago. I forgot to include “fun” on my list of things to do.
Now, as I look in the mirror, I understand that I need to perform some personal, self-analysis to help determine what do during my years and I want to be. I wrote another “to do” list. This list does not contain my professional objectives but contains а list of my personal interests. I learned how to do so by studying the various and multiple postings by women and men searching for their soul mate! It’s amazing what а computer can do.
