feeling lost

I am a nineteen-year-old, sophomore in college. I would be lying if I said I always have my life together. I don't wake up every morning and spring out of bed with excitement and ready to take on my day. I'm not always filled with joy to go to class and learn. I hardly ever have the drive to go to the gym and eat healthily and the list goes on.

I don't always have my life together and that's ok.

When you're living at home, it's very easy to live in the moment and remember your purpose. You're in your parent's presence and you're constantly doing things with your friends and loved ones. It's easy to get into that routine of doing something every day, things that you want to do. When you're in college it's easy to get off track. It's easy to forget your purpose and what your goals are.

I used to think this was wrong or not okay for me to feel this way.

I'm in control of my life, what I do, how I react to things so why did I feel this way? When I come home I don't feel lost or confused. I know exactly what my purpose is and the path I'm on. I realized it's because I'm comfortable there and it's easy for me to get into a routine at home.

At school, I have to make myself do things. I still have everyone's support, but it's on my shoulders to take action. It's harder to obtain your goals when you feel like you're just going through the motions of going to class and studying. It's not hard for a 15 week semester to fly by and you feel like you didn't accomplish much.

It's ok to get lost sometimes, but always remember you have a goal and you're heading towards something.

For me, it's to get that degree in 2 years.
