At a weird stage in my life or perhaps just my thought processes. Iím in my early 30's, job (self employed tradie), wife, and 2 kids. I live comfortably. But have had the feeling that I have just become a passenger in my life these last few years. Really I feel like I have let the past 6-7 years pass me by just going through the motions of everyday life. And every time I become conscious of this fact, I seem to drown it back out with the humdrum of bills, paperwork, or some other useless objective of modern day living and another few months or years pass me by. I am not really a material wealth kind of person. I have done well for myself mind you. But the more I seem to gather the more locked in I feel and the more I seem to continue along this same path.
Often I question the whole point of a seemingly plastic living existence (not in a suicidal way) which consists of such a scheduled routine but at the same time I want my family to be well off and I do have commitments.
I think it was tech/a that mentioned something along the lines of you have options at age 20 that you no longer have at age 30. And options at age 30 you no longer have at age 40 etc. Which made me sit down and think what the hell am I doing to let 6 years go by. Maybe I just need a change.
Would any more mature asfer's that could put an old head on young shoulders change the way they lived in their 30's?
