I’ve been doing a lot of thinking and life assessment, trying to work out what it is I want to do with my life. What am I passionate about, and (ideally) can I turn that passion into a career and earn from it?
I have worked out that I am interested in and feel importance in the fields of:
- Childbirth and childhood development
- Women – issues, rights and empowerment
- Technology – specifically computers/IT/webdesign
I had thrown around the idea, after having Emmett, of training to become a doula. I could probably extend this to being a childbirth educator as well. I don’t necessarily want to become a midwife, because that involves general nursing training too and I don’t think I’m up for that. I also certainly want to be involved in women’s rights (particularly reproductive and body autonomy rights).
I’m going to have to think long and hard, as it’s not something I can just start and give up halfway through – it’s something I’m going to have to stick with.
Just thoughts, as I’m thinking them – probably not cohesive but mneh.
