Let’s try this again

I was looking through my old drafts and found a post that was not yet finished. However, it still has a lot of meaning.

I have one more year left of my MBA. I am really excited about graduating and implementing all the knowledge that I have learned.   As the amount of courses I take begin to dwindle, it is time think about the next chapter of my career transition.

When I was in undergrad, I spent a lot of time planning my career and very little time planning my life. Prior to going to back to receive my advanced degree I spent some time analyzing life after college. I had many ups and downs and when I was 21, I never really thought about the kind of life I wanted to have when I became a women. When I turned 25 years old, I started to feel really uneasy about my life and where it was heading. I was constantly at work feeling physically ill and really unhappy. I thought about leaving my job every week after being their for 2 years. I just did not like the direction of where my life was heading. Thus, my body gave me signs that it was time to move on, but I did not recognize it until I went to the doctors and she suggested I get another job.  Eventually, I did get another job and I did feel better. However, at every job I always felt a sense of anxiety. That it was not a right fit for me. At this time I already was accepted in two MBA programs and decided to attend Fairleigh Dickinson University.

I will admit when I started my MBA, I was not sure exactly what I wanted to do with it. I knew I wanted to become a business leader, an executive and that I dreaded desk jobs.  I knew that I had to be in front of the scene as well as behind. However, my desired occupation or industry I was not sure of. Now, I realize that it is normal to feel that way. I want to do things differently than I how did things the first time I graduated college.
