The post-wedding rut

The wedding was great. The honeymoon was fun. My relationship is stronger than ever. So, why, oh why am I in a rut?
It feels exactly like finishing Harry Potter and realizing it's going to take that silly bitch another three years to crank out the finale.
I think it's time to figure out What I'm going to do with my life.
It just seems like the time. It has to be the time, right? I mean, how can I be 31 and still not know...not have any clue what I want to do. The only thing I know for sure is that "order monkey" cannot be my career destiny.
So, how does one go about picking their life's work? How do you find out what you really want to do? Then of course, how do you go about making it happen?
I've considered going back to school and doing the "masters/doc" thing...but, deep down I think I'm hoping something magical and inspiring (and money-giving) will just fall in my lap...or at least cross my path and give me a nudge in the right direction.

Oh hunny, I was there. Then on a whim I talked to a friend who made me realize I need to get up off my ass and make some things happen in my life. Looks to me like you're already on the road of at least thinking about moving in a new direction. That's the first step anyway. Everyone says find what you like and then find out how to get paid for it. Easier said than done. I'm sure you'll figure it out!

I'm in the same boat as you...pecking away at a job because it pays the bills but really wishing that something cool would just come my way. Trying to make it all happen is a bitch! I guess the best thing to do is to remember that if something doesn't work out, there's always something else to try.
