I am writing this post late at night, pretty much in the morning. It got me thinking, I do a lot of my thinking like this. Am I the only person who can't sleep when the thoughts are still running through my mind like clockwork? Most of the time I don't really think to record them. However, I thought that this is something many of us can related to or have experienced themselves.
To be honest, I feel lost.
I feel confused about my future.
I am not one of those people who have a clear cut plan of what is going to happen everyday for the next 20 years.
I often ask myself questions like : Where is my life actually heading? What are my life goals? Everybody as a gift, but what is mine?
I am aware that so many cultures do not give their children the opportunity to decide their own futures. Some parents think they are encouraging them child, but there is a fine line between this an just being plain pushy. Other parents like to live their dreams through their children. A lot of parents think that the only jobs worth doing are in the medical field, the law field etc. that isn't really the case!
I don't know what to do with my life. I feel pretty out of control. But I do know that we must do what we are passionate about. Have you ever heard the quote 'Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life?' Identify skills based around what you love. We can't let anyone else decide our futures for us. In the real world its just us and our skills out there to fend for ourselves. If the career you want to enter is a risk, I advice you take it. At least you know you tried instead of thinking 'what if?' But please don't leave your gifts unused!
What are your plans for the future? I know all of you are going high places!
Thanks for reading!
