Finding direction, even if it’s not the right one.

Finding direction, even if it’s not the right one.

I recently wrote a post about my goals for 2019. It pretty much ended up being a ‘what am I going to do with my life?’ sort of post. I’m very much still questioning this. One thing I question regularly is my career. I only ever wanted to be a teacher, and once I reached that point (having completed my NQT year and an MAEd) I felt a bit lost.

We so often hear encouragements telling us we can do anything we want to do if we set our minds to it or that we should ‘chase our dreams’. Well what if you don’t have any? For the last few years I have very much felt like I don’t know where I’m going. There’s no big goal or dream, I’m just taking life one day at a time. And I struggle with that lack of direction. But I keep going. Sometimes it can feel like you’re the only one who doesn’t know where they’re heading, but I’m pretty sure that’s
