What DO I want to do?

As children we are asked early what do you want to be when you grow up? It starts innocently with princess, president, astronaut, police office. But at some point they actually expect that you just know what you want to do, then ship you off to school for a few years and viola- there you are! But what if your dream and your ability to do this occupation do not mesh, and then you are faced with - nothing? A series of mindless, lackluster occupations that will bring home money for your family but leave you unfulfilled and wishing for more.

So what does someone do when they are 35 and realize that they just don't know what they want to do with their life. Faced with working on a masters in something that is not bringing them joy or doing the scary thing and starting over. But how do you know what your passion is, or what you are supposed to do with your life. If you have many things that interest you and sound good but just doesn't strike a cord.

So where do you go? What do you do? How do you even begin to figure out a new path? Really I am asking because I do not have the faintest clue anymore. I am unsure, scared and just clueless. The only things I have ever wanted to do are no longer options, and then that leaves me here. No specific calling, no clear direction or path...just aimless wondering.
I have no clue what to do.
