Are you wondering what to do with your life?

I just turned 50 and don't feel that I am living my life to my full potential. Is it my age or because I have matured have I finally figured out that I need to start doing something that is universally helpful to those that need help? I am making money for a bunch of rich and selfish people who do what ever the can to go as far as they can to make money and not get caught breaking the law... the sad thing is the regulations and standards that they are supposed to be working with in are good, but they are worthless because they are not enforced. Go figure....

sounds like you work in politics! I worked in politics and felt the exact way you described. In fact I can remember saying "I'm so tired of making rich people richer." I decided to go back to school to become a special ed teacher. I'm currently still a student and I work in an elementary school, and yes going back to school is hard and it really sucks sometimes (not the mention the financial burden), but I am SO MUCH happier in life and it has completely changed my outlook on life.

Hope that helps!

I think at 50 you should take a good look at your life and decide what will make you happy - not what makes the most money. Life is short, and now you are at an age where you know what works for you and what doesn't. Don't sell your self short, "it is never to late to become who you were meant to be"! Best wishes, explore all options no matter how crazy!
