I always thought that by 30, I would have it all figured out. Then life happened. And here I am. 30...and still searching for what it is that I want to do?? Don't get me wrong - I am incredibly thankful for all of the wonderful things that I have been so blessed with, and the career that I have - but there is definitely a big, empty void where I am left wondering...what's next? And, what am I going to do to make sure I have done my part to make this world a better place when I'm gone?
So the search continues...and I know I am not alone in my quest. Although most of my friends have lead successful, often lucrative careers, we are all asking the same thing - is this it? This is what we pull ourselves out of our comfy beds and work 40-50 hrs a week for? To own a home? Drive a nice car? Buy an expensive pair of shoes? To me, this does not feel like success at all...and I think many of us are starting to truly explore what the meaning of "living what you love" is, and what it is to truly be "successful."
I guess my point of this note is just to share my thoughts, put it out there into the universe, and hope that it comes back with some answers for me. I do think my path is starting to change, and I am excited (and sometimes overly ambitious in my thoughts) for what's ahead. I know every day is part of the experience, part of the growth and part of what's going to get me one step closer...meanwhile, I am going to do my best to enjoy, learn and live, one lovely day at a time.
