When life gives you lemons, it’s not always so you can make lemonade. Shout out to all the fellow 20 somethings out there who don’t know what to do with their lemons.
If you haven’t figured out what I’m talking about yet, I’m talking about careers. I’m talking about passions, or lack there of. I’m talking about the thing we are going to do for the rest.of.our.lives.
The other day I was driving along and like many other days of my life, I was trying to figure out what I want to be when I grow up (as if I’m not already married and kinda grown up). And like every 5 year-old that I currently coach, my mind changes every 5 minutes, and not because I have so many desires and passions in life that I dream of following, but because I can’t seem to nail down even one.
Life is so full of curve balls, especially having to make decisions that will impact or influence your future, when you don’t even know where you’re trying to lead it. I wanted to write this post for two reasons. 1. to get it off my chest and 2. So myself and others would know that we aren’t alone in this boat (and it’s probably not even a boat, it’s more like a cruise ship).
So here’s to all of you working a job you hate in order to chase after a career you love. And here’s to all of us who still don’t know what we are chasing after!!
