What About My Future?

Where is my life taking me?

What About My Future?
Life Begins

So raise your hand if you have ever stressed about your future? Many hands rose correct? This is a common fear among many. Since we are born we are raised to think about our future and what we want to be when we grow up. I know as I grew up I wanted to be so many things, and at 25, I am still not sure what I want to do with my life, and I have many fears about it, stressing me out and preventing me from enjoying things. But in this day and age, it is a very common thing to worry about the future and how to make a living. Sure these are things that should be thought about, but these aren’t things that should prevent you from enjoying your life.

NO idea whether I actually want to stay in this field, if it actually interests me at all. Because I’ll tell ya, there are many classes I have to take in my program that I do not like and bored the heck out of me. For instance I am currently in a MIS information class and I have barely learned anything, and I know I won’t be using most of it in the future, and after that I have the dreaded accounting 1 class. But back to what I am going to do with my life, I have no set plan, I am considering marketing, and other things, but when I actually think about it…..I truly don’t know.

“Forced” to continue right away by families, and to not waste money, they jump into a field that they aren’t 100 percent sure about.

FINALLY get my degree. But I spend quite a bit of time worrying about where my future lies, where I will be working, how much I will make and how everything these days is expensive, and it’s only going up. I even worry about college and how much it is, but I remind myself that it is necessary and that I don’t see myself getting very far without a degree.

Since I worry about what career I will end up in and how much I will make, I worry that I will never be able to get a house, a nice car, will I be able to travel and see things that I have always wanted to see. These are all unknown answers and things I should not constantly stress about and worry about it, everything happens for a reason and everything will work out. Being almost 25 makes me really think how I only have five years until I am 30 and it’s going to go by in a blink of an eye. I feel like I should be farther in my life, more established, I feel as society makes it as though at my age I should be set in my career, established. This makes me wish that I would have gone to college right after high school so I could have graduated with my class, but that is not how my life panned out, it wasn’t meant to be. I get extremely jealous when I see people I graduated with graduating college and now have a job and a career, and that is something I want so badly. I am working on teaching myself to relax and just push forward because I am moving forward, I am going to school to work towards my degree which will open more doors for me, and give me a better chance to get a good job that pays well. Everything will work out and I will forever stand by the quote that my mom once said to me, “everything happens for a reason.”
