Ok, now I can’t be the only one who looks at the prospects of the future and is really unsure as to what I want to do.
Well, I mean sure; there are tones of things I would like to do, but not so many of them are practical, much less good to base a living from.
Personally, I wanted to join the Defense Forces, but that idea was quickly shot down due to medical reasons. Surprisingly, Type 1 Diabetes classifies a person as “Permanently Medically Unfit” for service.
So now I am left with the big and very much looming question of; ‘What the hell am I going to do with my life?’
There is so much to study for, so much to apply for, and so much to work towards, and yet… I can’t seem to really find anything out there that says ‘hey this is for you’.
Does anyone else get that as well?
I am fast approaching that time in life where I am ‘suppose’ to decide with direction I will ultimately go in for my future. And yet, it is now more than even that I just can’t pick.
Why is it that our current economy makes it so hard for us to try many different things until we find what is right? Why is it that society expects children to make decisions that will effect our entire lives while we are still so young.
Yes, believe what you will. We are still young. We have seen so little of the world, and even less of our own home countries. We still know so little about how to survive properly; about how to provide for ourselves. And in many cases, parents shield us from much of this until we are well set up.
So why then, are we pushed to make decisions when we can’t possibly predict the outcome in a world we have yet to really experience?
For the moment i hope to find a mid way point between University and what would be a quicker, more active career. I can only hope that if one doesn’t work the way I would like, then I will be able to completely fall back on the other one.
How many of you out there are feeling, or have felt, the same way? How many of you have been asked the all important questions about who you want to be and what you want to do? How many of you have looked at the many different paths in front of you and just wished that you could have more time? That you could simply slow down this fast pace so that you can actually think? So that you can really look at all the possibilities and consider if you will be happy in whatever you choose to do?
I think there are far to many people out there that jump feet first into something without knowing all they need to know, and end up regretting it, but being unable to take back the last 4 to 8 years of their life.
The future is a daunting prospect. It can hold wondrous adventures, but I sincerely think that the future can not be rushed into either. Take time to enjoy life once in a while.
I know that I wish I could…
