What do you do when you don’t know what to do?🤔


Do you ever have the feeling that there is no place for out there? You’ve tried a lot of things but nothing feels like it’s for you. For the longest time, I have struggled to find what to do with my career and life as a whole. I feel like there is so much pressure to be something that sometimes you don’t know what to do about the fact that you don’t know what to do.

I’m currently doing my Masters’ and throughout this process, I find that everyone else seems to have it all figured out, at least the people I don’t talk to. I’m very new to most of the things explored in the program but I’ve always told myself it didn’t matter, there’s still a lot to learn. But it’s been 8 months now and I still feel like a fish out of water. People always say not to worry about what other people are doing but what happens when you have to compete with those same people for a job? Wouldn’t you worry then?


Lately, it just seems like I spend my time worrying about what happens next. I talk about not planning life, but I also seem to want to control my next steps. Isn’t that just funny?

Like Buddha once said, “Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.” 

I’ll tell you what I’m going to do, absolutely nothing! I’m just going to live life one day at a time as hard as that may be. 

If anyone out there has the answers, come find me because I’m looking…
