Beautifully Blurred: Why It's Okay To Not Always Understand Your Life Path
"Hindsight is 20/20."
We've all heard this expression. There is often much more clarity in life when looking back than when you are in the moment or looking forward.
The future is often beautifully blurred, and I want to explain why that is perfectly okay!
We can't ever know exactly what is going to happen or even where we will be tomorrow, in a week, in a year, in ten years or beyond.
This can be rather frightening and intimidating but regardless of how we feel about it, we still can do nothing to control it.
Society puts a crushing amount of pressure on us to always be thinking ahead. To build our resumes, plan for the future, follow the status quo, and worry about the things we simply can't control.
Embrace the blur.
I want to advocate for the fact that it is completely okay to not know where you are going or what you are doing next.
To be honest, none of us actually do, we just pretend and fight day in and day out to control the uncontrollable.
You don't need to be building your resume every second. You don't need to be chasing the job others say is right for you. You don't need to be following the "normal" order of life.
YOU are the only one who has the power to control what you are doing and to make sure that whatever you are doing is making you happy.
Time is an asset that we can never get more of. Once we use it, it is gone forever.
So, what are you spending your time doing? Are you happy each day? You should be. You deserve to be happy every. single. day.
The validity of happiness.
Just remember that it is completely okay if you aren't working a full time job so that you have time to pursue your passion.
It is completely okay if you aren't trying to be the lawyer others want you to be.
It is completely okay if you are taking time each day to stroll and enjoy the small and simple things in this world.
In my opinion, enjoying each imperfect, marvelous moment in life as it arrives is forever more valuable than chasing a control over the future that we will never reach.
If you are happy, you are doing something right...and you should never feel shame for that.
I hope these thoughts and ideas offer some motivation and validation for you to live the life that is best for YOU. I will always be here to support you to make this true.
With Great Enthusiasm,
