Some people leave the womb, knowing exactly what they want to do with their lives. Others (like myself) leave with the notion that “I’ll figure it out eventually”. As years continued to pass, relatives and teachers all had the same question “so what are you going to do in the future.” And the honest answer was that I had no clue. However I would respond with an answer that included what I deemed to be a steady, respectable and well earning profession. At the time, I hated not knowing, especially since everyone else seemed to know so eventually I started to believe my answers. However as I got older, I became more honest with myself, and as I did, I finally got the answers I was looking for.
Majority of adults want you to know who you want to be at an age where you still have difficulty picking what to eat for lunch and the biggest decision you face is what hairstyle to do next. Not knowing what you want to do with your life at 15 is perfectly fine. Not knowing what to do with your life at 21 is also perfectly fine. As much as it may seem like there is, there is no set time to do anything in life. As long as you are happy where you are, then no one should be allowed to make you feel otherwise. You and you alone are in control of the path you take, and you know what’s best for you.
Eventually, the answers will come to you and when they do it may be something you’ve known all along but suppressed or it may not be something you expect at all. But as it becomes imprinted within you and you begin to wrap your head around it, you suddenly start to intricately plan your steps as to how you are going to attain it. So don’t panic, just keep going and it’ll all be clear in the end.
