Where are you right now, again?
After college, we all had our maps and backpacks packed. Full of our dreams and goals not knowing what’s ahead of us.
If you have your life planned out, well good for you. But there’s a huge percentage of us that don’t have an idea on what we are doing right this very moment. Being pressured by society, your family and even yourself, all at once. Can we erase the word expectations? And just let things happen.
How do you see yourself in five years? What are your plans for the next year? Clearly, not everybody can answer these questions. If you ask me, I would just utter words that seem cool to hear and less of a realistic and attainable thing to achieve. You might not be the best out of the field you’ve chosen or immediately get that promotion. Relax, we are all a work in progress. This time might not be yours yet! Take chances and opportunities. Don’t let the pressure get to you. You’ll have your own story of success soon.
When you’ve given everything but fulfillment and satisfaction is nowhere to be found. It’s okay to quit. It’s time to change the course of your life. You don’t want to get stuck in a life you never wanted right? Instead of complaining of how hard life is, take the first step or let go of something or someone who’s holding you down. Be free, experience the wonders of being lost.
If you’re lost, welcome it with open arms. Embrace all of it. Take the rough roads and shaky paths. Venture into the depths of life and explore the world. One day you might find what you’re looking for. You should know that all of us are students of life. Never be afraid of what you’ll become but anticipate of what you are becoming.
It’s true that we have never-ending lists of things we want to do and places we want to travel to before we die. We still have a lot of years ahead of us. It’s all about God’s perfect timing and his plans for you. Your life is an unwritten book, you’re the author. You choose where it will take place, when your story will start and even how it will end.
We are allowed to get lost and feel completely lost.
