Barely use this site anymore, but have always found people to be pretty good at this sort of thing so asking for a little help.
I’ve been in the same trade since I left school. I’ve always been good at my job and always thought I loved what I did. Until the last month or so. I’m 34 on Friday and I’ve realised that the job I’ve done for nearly 18 years is not for me anymore. I’m completely disillusioned with it. For the first time in my life I’m considering switching to a new career. My one small problem is, I don’t know what that career is. I have no idea what I would want to do with my life. There’s nothing I’ve ever considered in the past. Is this being naive? Maybe a case of reluctance or scared of the unknown?
The other issue, as we all find with life is finance. I’d say my job pays me a comfortable wage, which allows me to do the things I enjoy (travelling to watch Town, gigs and festivals) and keeps me happy in life. Obviously there’s no way I could jump from one job into something I’ve never done before and expect to carry on living the same way and being paid the same. However, I know that if I had to give up the things I enjoy outside of my life, I’d be pretty miserable. Work to live and all that.
So, am I being too naive? Am I looking at the short term, being selfish and no more than that? Am I just having a mini, slightly early midlife crisis? Has anyone ever been in a similar position and what did you do to change things?
Like I say, I barely use this site nowadays so if I come back to people then there’s a chance I won’t be relying for a couple days. You’re all good eggs on the whole and hopeful some of you will have some decent advice...
Cheers in advance...

How did he look yesterday?
Just seen the highlights and I was surprised when I saw him absolutely bombing back in the first half trying to keep up with the lad who had their only chance (1:47 onwards)

Of feeling too old to attend certain gigs/events?
Currently at 02 Brixton to see Four Tet for an all nighter.
I’m looking around and all the youngsters are dressed funny and not wanting to speak to anyone and I’m not sure I can drink til 5am and still remember the night..
