Awake Way Too Late

I have experienced many transititions in life.  My son is 20 years old and I no longer view him as someone I need to mold and define the world around him.  I lost a partner in life and I am working on trying not to let that define me.  I quit my job in order to experience a life full of discoveries which were stagnant since I have had to work every day since I was 15. 
I am ready to move on and start defining my own life. To start the next phase of my life

I am still at a crossroads of what I want to be when I grow up. To teach or not to teach, that is the question. 
I have so much that I want to pass on to our children and I have a lot of love to give students who crave some sort of adult support.  I look at children today and think to myself, if I had 15 minutes with this child what would I say to that child.  How would I phrase the future to him in which it would grab his attention and make him start to think of his own future and realize that each decision he makes will affect the outcome of his own life?  What would I say to this child that would have such a profound effect on their life to where they could change their destiny and help them become a better man or a woman?  These are the questions I ponder late at night.

I want to make a difference.
I want to be the difference in a childs life.
