    Thank you so much for this article! I’m 25 and starting university this year, after 5 years of thinking about what I like, what I want, and trying programs and dropping out because they weren’t for me. And still, I’m not sure if it’s gonna be the right path for me…It’s hard to always go forward when you think everyone around you have it settled; but I found out it’s not always the case, even if it looks like this. I thought many of my friends had found their “calling”, but I was wrong. We’re all searching for more, we know that we won’t keep the same job for the next 40 years; we know that one day, the road will turn and we’ll try something else. It’s both a blessing and a curse to have so many options in life.
    So, I figure out I should just try to enjoy life and collect experiences as much as I can!

    I love reading stories like yours. Too often we believe that in order to be successful & happy with our lives and careers, we must be on a constant track upward, always knowing what we want from the very beginning. So not true! Sometimes having multiple directions is exactly what you need to get you going in the RIGHT direction :) Congrats on all you’re accomplishing!

    Great post! I am struggling with this at the moment too, I am passionate about so many things, but I am not necessarily good at them all just so confused! I would love to be a blogger but I don’t know if that will work out.

    Thank you for sharing your story! I’m 26 years old and still struggling with what I want to do with my life. I recently started my blog and although it’s nowhere near perfect it’s made me more happy than anything else I’ve done in my life. So I think this might be it. I hope I can do it just like you did! Thanks again!!

    Reading your post is like reading the insides of my brain, minus the full-time blogger part. I, too, fell into a stable job with decent pay right after uni, but it just doesn’t feel right. I took it because my brain told me I needed the money and work experience, and it’s not like I know what I want to do with my career anyways?!

    I’m happy for you that you found what you love to do. :) I’m working on finding mine too, starting with taking a few new classes in photography and social media strategy. I’m hoping if I check out enough interesting classes, I’ll finally fall in love with something lol (other than food and naps).

    xoxo

    Thanks so much for sharing! It’s so easy to fall into the rut of following others’ suggestions/accepting their input without doing the soul searching needed to figure out what you, the individual, want to do. It’s comforting that you also had worries/fears going into this and everything still turned out alright!

    Thanks for the inspiration! I am starting my blog now and I know I am only holding myself back! Do you listen to the podcast “Join Up Dots?” When you said, “the dots just started to fit” it made me think of it! I definitely recommend it! It’s full of inspirational stories like yours.

    Yes, im totally in this age where i have no clue what i want to do. I always wanted to start a business but i have no money, which means working a few jobs to get some $$$ to invest. Im in nursing school but idk. Im just lost right now. Im already in so deep. I just want to take a moment and see what i want to do. Of course i shouldnt think about the past. I should just think of what I should do right now. Im having a mid 20 crisis.

    Trying to finish college and make sense of life. Ugh! I’m in my late 20’s and just feel so lost.

    After reading this I took a deep breath and reminded myself that everything will be fine. It just takes time.

    I’m glad things worked out for you!

    Thank you.
