Hey there everyone,
Since I have started my last year in college something has been on my mind (as I’m sure it has been for the rest of you in the same position) & that has been what does the future have in store for me? I can’t express to you how often this has been on my mind for the past few weeks so I wanted to share a post with all of you about how I have been feeling about this topic. It’s so hard not to look at people on social media or in real life & how it looks like they have their whole lives put together. I have experienced this in so many different instances & it’s hard not letting that put doubts in your head about your own life & questioning where it all went wrong. But recently, I have realized that not everyone has it all figured out which is OKAY!
When I was in high school I always knew that my next step was college & I would further my education. When you are in high school you never had to think critically about your future plans past college & now that I have entered my final year of school, I realize how fast everything is actually moving. It has been making it harder to figure out what my next step should be. Even though it is a scary thought not knowing where I am headed or what I will do after school & I have come to the conclusion that it’s okay not to have it all together. The more I have thought everything, I have come to accept that I can’t always control where my life is headed. Don’t get me wrong I set goals for my everyday life, but I absolutely SUCK at planning my future. Thinking about moving away from home or graduating from college or moving in with your boyfriend can be a scary thing to think about, but you have to. I am only 21 years old & I am supposed to make all of these decisions & moves that will change my whole life. But, I have decided not to let these things scare me anymore. Trying not to worry about every little detail has allowed me the ability to relax & reflect on everything going on in my life. I normally am a high strung person who tends to stress very easily, but now I am working on accepting things for they way they are & not stress about what the future has in store for me. I have learned to be patient & trust that there is a plan for me. So the next time you are feeling stressed out about your future, just remember that it is okay not to follow your exact plan. Take time, adventure, make mistakes & love your life because it is the only one you have!
I hope this post has helped you feel more at ease about whatever is going on in your life. For me, I know writing this post out (finally) has helped me dive in deeper to how I feel about this topic & how to cope with all these changes going on. No matter how old you may be, just remember to enjoy your life (cheesy, I know) & don’t stay hung up on your “plan” for the rest of your life. You have plenty of time to figure everything out! I hope you all have an amazing rest of your week & stay full of positivity. I will talk to you all again soon!
