Some people know what they want to do with their lives when they are still very young, others are never able, or don't wish to make this decision.

    greetings Stella, I'll respond asap to any questions and messages...
    To answer your question...I've always thought it's WHAT you do with your life not not wanting to do with your life.
    Example: I'm two score and plus 10 on the age scale. I've been a Draftsman,plumber,project coordinator,machinist,paratro... soldier, leader of men,peacekeeper,volenteer, father, grandfather, blah blah blah...Point it's what you do not wanting to do.

    Hello to you too, Don! =)

    Wow... that's a lot! A rich life, filled with different experiences!

    Some people have a lot of interests, others only have one or two passions in life, eg music, sports, or cars... If people are very talented at one thing, I suppose they'll want to do that with their life.

    If I'd have to do something over a long period of time, without being interested or talented at it, I'd become frustrated! For me it's important to be able to do what I'm good at, then I enjoy working and spending my spare time. It would feel like a waste of time if I didn't. But... I have to do a lot of things in life that I'm not that wild about too, of course, because I'm obligated to. It's important to feel that we do something meaningful, not only for ourselves, but for others and the society too. And also do things that make us, personally, happy and content.

    it changes as you go along. it's not set in stone. it's not a one time thing.

    I agree on that. I've had many plans, lived out my dreams, worked hard to achieve them... then something would happen, and my plans had to be changed. I believe it's a good thing to make plans, and have dreams.

    yeah but so often in the midst of doing something planned something unexpected comes up. but the planned thing led to the unexpected thing, so it worked out anyway just not the way you thought.
  • Stella Nightmusic 2011/01/03 07:13:31
    Stella
    Yes... unexpected things make life more exciting!

    I've often thought "Why do I bother to make plans, they always have to be changed anyway!", but then again... without them I wouldn't have started (and sometimes finished) realizing them.

    Hopefully we would know before graduating highschool. I already know what I want to do with my life and I'm 14. Actuallly, I think I've know what I wanted to do since I was in 1st grade, but I didn't really know what it was until I was in 5th grade.

    Then you knew very early. You're lucky, actually, because many people have a very hard time, and use a lot of time wondering about what they're going to do in the future.

    It's good to have dreams and a goal. It's very motivating, it makes you work to achieve what you want.

    lucky people future dreams goal motivating work achieve living my dreams

    Yeah, I guess I am lucky. :) I just hope I don't graduate and then realize I can't be an author. That would really suck. But I doubt that. Writing has always been my favorite thing to do.

    I want to be an author. Hopefully I will become an author because my whole life I've liked to read and write. My teachers really liked my stories back in elementry and my new English teacher does too. :)

    I knew what I wanted to do at 16.

    Be an entertainer.

    But at what age REALLY doesn't matter.

    Entertainer sounds very facinating!!! Good luck!!! What kind of entertainment? Sing, act, dance... ? =)

    I decided what I wanted to do when I was about that age too, but then I changed my mind a bit when I was about 20. Somebody talked me into it. It's not like I've been unhappy because of it, but I regret that I didn't do what I wanted to in the first place. I shouldn't have listened so much to the others. After all it's MY life!

    changed mind 20 talked ive unhappy regret listened life have fun
