The Moneyologist: I’m a 40-year-old woman with a great career and my own home — so why am I so unhappy?

Dear Moneyologist,

I’m in a rut. I recently bought a home, thanks to an inheritance from my father’s estate. I have a full-time job teaching at a local high school. I’m 40 years old, and yet I feel like I have let life pass me by. I don’t have a husband and children. I spent the first part of my life in the rat race, striving for what I don’t know, but when I got to the top of the mountain of my chosen profession — finance — it was not what I expected it to be. When I looked to the future, all I could see was a vast empty space.
