Before thinking about where I was headed, I did a few things first. I thought about where I was now, what I had done before hand, and what I needed to do. A few events happened that were slightly unplanned, but when I think back I think it was life doing the work for me. Cutting ties, shutting the past behind, and forcing me to look to the future.
So, where we goin’?
To be honest, I don’t plan a final destination. I plan the future, of course, life is a lost cause if you don’t have some form of future goal. However life will change and switch up in different unexpected ways, like I have come to realise and see first hand over the last week. Life gives and takes, and sometimes it gives you a helping hand in when you have no idea what you are doing, and sets the path. You can’t push it to do that, and wait for it to do that, you have to work hard. Whats the saying, you get out what you put in. Life won’t work with you if you don’t work with life, and put in the effort to want to get somewhere or get to an end destination.
Feeling lost is normal. If we all had a blueprint of what exactly we would do in life, life would be pretty boring really. Things can feel a little crappy and down sometimes, and seems like nothing good will ever come your way, but it will. I have felt very dark sometimes and very low to the point I didn’t really see a good side of any of it, but there always is. You have to look for it. Search for it. Think hard. You don’t realise how strong your mind can be until you hit a rock bottom feeling. That feeling of I can’t do this, My life had no meaning, I’m lost and I don’t know what to do.
One thing you do need to do is think. Just stop, check, think. You may not know the solution afterwards but you will get there. Its the first step in finding that destination. If you are lost in general and don’t know what to do with life in general and where you want your life to take you. I have one piece of advice. Ditch it all and start afresh. I don’t mean people as you need people in your life, but if you are not happy with your job, find something new. Throw caution into the wind. The biggest winners are always the risk takers. Some risks are stupid. Some risks are life saving. This would be a life saving risk.
If you always wanted to move country, save up and go for it, don’t let anything hold you back. If you want to move to a new career, do it. Don’t let anything hold you back.
You are the captain of your own destiny and no one else will be.
The waters can be choppy sometimes. There can be obstacles in the path you are heading. You just need to steer the ship and forge a path to your dream, your goal, your end ambition in life.
Find your destination, then soar!
