I don’t really have any advice about finding a job but I just had a practical question.  Can you afford to just live on your FI’s salary?  Unfortunately, if you quit your job, it might take much longer than a month after the wedding to find something else.  The job market is so slow now, especially if you are looking to go into a different field that you might not hear anything in a short amount of time.

A woman I came across once took one look at me and said “You’ll do great things, just not what you think you’re going to do.” At the moment I thought she was just trying to advise me, or “teach” (she’s a little eccentric). But what she said is really true. My interests haven’t changed, I love people and I have always been the helping hand in family and friend- I’m a “fixer”. But I actually was referred to an Occupational Therapist because of anxiety I have, and I fell in loe with the career. I’m lucky enough to have had the opportunity to job-shadow, and it just reinforced my love for it.

Sorry I don’t have advice on finding my passion.  I still haven’t found mine!  I have a job lined up that is completely different from what I was doing but I haven’t started yet so I don’t know how I will like it.
