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!



  1. Great post! I think it is one of the hardest things in life to trust your intuition, finding and following your path <3

  2. I like this post! Right way of thinking. I mean we should follow our dreams to be happy and do what we would like to do the whole life. Sometimes it is very difficult to find the right answer, but the main thing is to listen to your heart and thoughts.

  3. I have absolutely no idea. I'm 15 and tomorrow is my first ever job interview at Hoyts cinema. Obviously that's not my future job though. I don't know what I'm going to become. I'm not really passionate about anything. You're not the only one with a wandering mind in the middle of the night.

  4. Tell me about it. Heck I'm 21 and I still don't know what I'm doing. You go into uni thinking you know what you want and a couple years in you're right back where you started. I absolutely agree with the quote and I would encourage those who can to follow it. Everybody tends to feel lost at some point, but speaking from personal experience, that's when you learn how strong you are, who your support system is, etc.
    So I like to stay optimistic! As long as you are working hard, spreading joy (to yourself and others) and being a nice person in general, you're doing all right :)

    Warning: I am not a self help guru, just pretending to be one.

  5. I pray you'll be able to find your path. just be patient and discover your passions.

    as for me, I feel so odd because everyone I know is in the same boat as you with not knowing and stuff; but Ive always known what I wanted to do. I want to be a psychologist and open a recovery center for those who struggle with self harm, depression, and eating disorders.
    so yeah

    good luck with life. haha

  6. Hi! you have a great blog :)
    I am following you now, hope to follow me back.. :)

  7. I totally agree with this. I've had a hard time working out what I want to do with my life too. Maybe people put too much expectation and pressure on young people to work out what they want to do quickly. I'm in my third year of uni, and I've only just pinpointed what I want to be doing with my life. My passions are writing and music, and I've been lucky enough to be able to study writing, but what i really want to do is work freelance as a writer, editor, and/or musician. It's not an easy path I know, but I want to do something I love. Keep looking! You'll know when you've found the right path. But it's not worth settling for something less.
