Paralegal! Flight attendant sounds so demanding and not great if you ever wanted a family life. My two cents.

Find out how much you like reading legal cases if you want to be a paralegal. Would catering or being a private chef be an option?

I would definitely lean towards paralegal. Flight Attending may not be as viable as we move into a global recession as a result of covid – economists are saying there is likely to be less international or even local travel for years to come. Also, I would say flight attending would be quite hard work especially as you get older, and as the PPs said, less likely to be family friendly (although not impossible).

I don’t think it’s a great time to be a flight attendant. Air travel will likely be down for a couple years. Give paralegal a try. Maybe you could shadow someone doing the work first and see how you feel about it.

I would say paralegal over flight attendant as well. However, not too long ago on another career thread, I believe a lawyer bee advised someone not to go the paralegal route because some lawyers work as paralegals if they can’t find a job as a lawyer right out of law school & said firms would hire a lawyer as a paralegal over a paralegal as a paralegal. I’m in the medical field so I don’t know how accurate that is but it’s worth doing your own research. Good luck.
