Are You Where You Want To Be?

Are you where you thought you'd be today? I'm not to be quite honest. While some things in my life are dreams realized I'm not who or where I wanted to be at this age. I thought by now I'd have a successful career doing something I enjoyed and living in a place a little bit more exciting. However, on the other hand, where I am today is by far a better place than where I was fifteen or twenty years ago. I guess that's a definite plus and as someone once said, "hey, it could be worse". I think my job is what makes me so dissatisfied. I tell myself, it's just a job, it doesn't define who you are as a person or the quality of the life you lead. Is that true? We spend so much of our daily lives at a job that how could it not define us as an individual? Are'nt you always a doctor or nurse or teacher or mother or father no matter what the situation?

I want to be surrounded by pretty things and live a joyful happy experience. When I'm old, if I should live so long, I don't want to sit on the porch one day asking myself if I were truly ever happy?
