Figuring It Out and Finding Your Passion

Hello Beautiful People!

This post is going to be a tad different than usual, so I’m just going to write. So, it’s been a while. I’m not actually too sure why. My days have been relatively routine lately; i wake up, shower, put my makeup on, go to classes, come home and study, eat dinner, watch some youtube, TV or read and then go to bed. But for some odd reason, I’ve been feeling extremely unmotivated and uninspired to share anything on my blog. I think a part of this has to do with having many other things on my mind lately…

Although I hate to admit this to even myself, I’ve been struggling a lot with school lately. Not the work or the courses per say. But a struggle to find this motivation and ambition to work for something that I really want. I’m sure I’m not the only person or student who has dealt with this feeling before. All your life you’re asked what you’d like to do when you’re older. When you’re younger, the options seem pretty limitless. But when you finish high school or you’re in college or university and you’re asked the question, it’s not as easy for some people to answer as it was when you were little. And the reason for that is because it’s time to look at the the big picture: what am I good at? where will I live? are there even jobs available in that town or city? how will i make a living? how exactly am i going to apply my degree? are probably just a few of the “bigger picture” questions you may ask yourself. Although I still have a couple more years until I’m out of the school system and basically…well…pushed into the real world, it would still be nice to have that lightbulb go off in my head that says: “I know exactly what I’d like to do with the rest of my life.”

HOWEVER…

After a lot of self reflection and being worried about not being able to find a career in the future that I am absolutely passionate about, I realized something extremely important. And that is why I’m sharing this post with all of you. If you’re ever feeling a little bit lost, hopeless, worried or in complete fear of your future, remember that it is okay to not have any idea of what you want to do right away. Don’t force yourself to come up with a job you think you would like doing and tell yourself that you’d be able to live with doing that if it’s not something you’re completely passionate about doing (don’t get me wrong – yes, making money to live is important, therefore having a job is important but I hope you get what I’m trying to say). Your ambition and passion to do something you love will come to you through experience. Don’t be lazy. Try new things. By trying new things, you will most likely come to realize what it is you really love doing and from there, you will likely be able to find a career that you’re happy with. This may not happen tomorrow, or next month, or even next year, but as long as you put the effort into trying new things and figuring out what it is you love – you will likely end up DOING something you’re happy about doing.

I know this post was a little random and maybe cheesy at times but hey, this is my blog and I wanted to share this post with all of you who may feel the same was as me.

Love,
Ali Grace xo
