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 not the case.
For everyone else who, like me, isn’t really sure where they’re going in life at the moment, don’t worry. I want to tell you to just take every opportunity that comes your way and do all the small (or big) things that you want to do. It doesn’t matter if it seems stupid or pointless, if it’s not helping you reach a goal or setting up for your future. It doesn’t matter. Take the adventures you want to take and don’t let your worry for the future stop you.
Maybe by doing things ‘just for fun’ or just because ‘you want to’ it’ll lead you one step closer to figuring out your next step.
And if it doesn’t?
Well that doesn’t matter either. If it makes you happy that should be enough. If you’ve loved it I doubt you’ll be looking back at your life wishing you hadn’t done it. So in the words of Nike, just do it, and don’t care what anyone else thinks.
