I’m not in my field that I have seven years of education and two degrees for.

I haven’t progressed professionally in four years for the lack of understanding what I actually do.

I have been to three therapists for depression dealing with my current lifestyle and this job.

YES get your degree, but do the hard work of figuring out what you're good at, passionate about and get a degree that works for you.

YES get your degree, but do the hard work of figuring out what you’re good at and passionate about so you get a degree that works for you.

Back to the myth that “schooling” is the key that opens all doors. It’s not and we know that. 

We have too many examples of folks who made it big without even finishing high school.  Then on the other hand we have folks that have several degrees and have jobs where they aren’t using any of that information, and even if they are, they are still miserable. 

Finding our purpose doesn’t begin or end with a degree. Getting an education and a degree is a part of finding our purpose. Even if you don’t have a job title or description that relates to your degree that should not stop you from doing SOMETHING that relates to your purpose. 

We will continue to be depressed as long as we are suppressing our passions.  We have to find a way to express our uniqueness.

Just do SOMETHING today that gives you joy.
