Default Has your WL sparked a new goal in life for you?

I posted this in another thread (of sorts), but my WL has sparked an interest in a career change for me. I no longer want to sit behind a desk, I want to be out in the world making a difference. I am now training to take the physical to be a cop. Since WL has sparked this in me, I was wondering if anyone else has had a similar experience. Btw, I am currently a medical coder (neurosurgery).

ladyrider - I feel the same way in that I want a more active job. I'm considering a major life change. The sucky part is it would mean less income for me but I would rather deal with that than thinking 'what if' for the rest of my life.

I don't want to say exactly yet but I'd have to go back to school and most of the programs are full time/highly recommended no working which means I'd have to quit my job.

Anyway, I'm still contemplating it and I'd start working toward that path early next year by taking some pre-req classes I didn't have in my undergrad.

I would say it's sparked my career ambition. I'm not so concerned with having a job title that is impressive at a high school reunion anymore. Now I want a job that is creative and challenging intellectually instead of has a fat paycheck and fancy title. I would like to keep the fat paycheck if at all possible...lol

Nelie and gamecockgirl, I too will have to take somewhat of a pay cut, but I am preparing for it as best I can.

A long term relationship. Through my teens and twenties I was one of the girls who always had a BF. I didn't want children so felt no pressure to settle down. But then at age 30 I gained 100 lbs. By the time I was 32, dating had dried up and I didn't date again for 18 years. So now I'm about to turn 51 and putting myself out there. While I know intellectually that dating is simply a screening process and should have lots of rejection from both sides, emotionally I'm finding it pretty hard to take when it happens. Especially now that I can't blame my appearance on the rejection. Fat was a buffer in more ways than one.
