Hello Everyone, Hope you’ve all been well.
I once put up a picture on my Instagram with the caption ‘stumbling through my twenties’ and it got so much engagement that it reassured me that I was not the only one feeling fairly conflicted about what direction their life was/should be going in.
I recently made the decision to quit my job and quite frankly, some people think i’m quite mad for making such a decision and I might be inclined to agree with them, especially since I had nothing else lined up. However, I just knew that the longer I stayed there, the more comfortable I’d become and the further away I’d be from my life goals. Also, it was quite a pivotal time in my life so I figured, its #nowornever.
A couple of weeks into my unemployment and I feel busier than ever before, in between jobhunting, being as active as I can be on my social media , being social in general and trying to line up blogger networking events, it’s all a bit full throttle but I also feel quite happy and if not for the fact that my bank account is literally going to start slapping me soon, I could bask in this life for a little while longer.
I mean, I say this now but the fact is that I do love having a routine. I thrive on knowing what needs to be done and when it needs to be done by. That’s why , post university, it has taken me a while to adjust to the whole ‘make your own routine vibe’ that life in general has. I think I’ve finally begun to get the hang of it now, I’m enjoying being a content creator, now more than ever. I’m certain about what sector of work I want to go into and confident about the skills I can bring into the workplace and in general feel like I’m finally on track for the life I want.
I mean, don’t get me wrong. I still wake up most days terrified about what the future holds, I second-guess myself all the time and I’m currently the brokest person alive. However, whenever I sink to the depths of despair, I get a sign that this is exactly what I’m supposed to be doing and I can only trust the process. So, that is exactly what I am going to do and I am going to trust myself more, put myself out there more so that when I look back on this time in my life , I can be proud of how far I have come.
One of the most profound quotes I have ever read in my life is this one , “Of all the words of tongue or pen, the saddest are these ; It might have been” and that has always stuck with me . The fact of the matter is that most of the things I regret are not things that I did but things that I DIDN’T do and I have decided that this is the time to shape my future into what I want it to be and face my fears head on.
Please let me know if you feel the same way in your life, I would love to hear from you. Thank you for reading and until next time,
