One of the things I struggle with is trying to have everything in my life figured out. The type of lifestyle I want to have for me, and my family is the reason why I work so hard. Sometimes I want everything to fall into place, but I know life doesn’t work that way.
Listening to Gary Vaynerchuk podcast he spoke on how it’s okay to not have your life figured out. In life you must try things and see if it works and if it doesn’t so be it. I think we want to have things figured out so bad that we lose focus on what’s currently happening in our lives. I spoke on the importance of being present and when we are present, we won’t try to focus on what’s not happening for us.
My husband is the total opposite from me. When I worry about next week or next month’s issues, he reminds me to take it easy. I’m a planner so I like to have things figured out and scheduled and he on the other hand just wings it. I guess that’s why I’m the more stressful parent and he’s the more laid-back parent. It keeps us balanced because I make sure that we don’t miss appointments and various occasions were invited to and he makes sure I don’t stress while I prepare for them. It’s a win win relationship. In all seriousness it’s okay if you’re 18, 21, 25, 30, 35, 40, or whatever age you are still struggling to figure out what you want to do with your life. Stop focusing on why you are not where you think you supposed to be and start enjoying life. I refuse to worry anymore about why I don’t have everything figured out in my life. I’m going to enjoying my life right now and taking each day one step at a time. I know that I can’t have everything figured out. Life is a journey.
Each day we wake up it’s a new day to experience something new. We get to start over. A fresh slate to try life again. We should make the most of each day by enjoying life to the fullest. Stop stressing about how you see your life in 5 or 10 years because we cannot predict the future. If someone told me I would be married by 25 I wouldn’t believe them. My experience with relationships in the past were a hit and miss so back then I wasn’t thinking about marriage any time soon. If I knew I would be married by 25 I wouldn’t have been able to enjoy the journey of falling in love.
Stop beating yourself up. You’re doing a great job. Don’t worry about what everyone else is doing focus on your progress. I know sometimes we feel stuck but that’s when we are trying to fight with ourselves and life. Take it easy. Everything you want for your life and in your life will come. I remember when I was pregnant with my first child, I was young. I didn’t know how I was going to provide for my son or how my life would turn out, but I lived in the moment. I stop trying to predict the future.
So, remember today stop trying to figure out your life. It’s okay if you are still searching for your passion. Life is a journey enjoy each day as if it’s your last.
