I gotta say, I love me some inspiration quotes...especially when they're decorated with fancy fonts and artsy designs. Seriously though, I couldn't begin to tell you how accurately both of these quotes depict how I feel about life now that I'm pretty much graduated from college. On one hand, I feel as if the world is my oyster. There are so many things I can do with my degree if I really set my mind to it [and work my butt off]. On the other hand, I feel like the burning question in my mind is, "what the hell am I supposed to do now?"
I'll come right out and say it - I have never really been a total go-getter. Whether it was a group presentation in college or any of my restaurant jobs, I never went out of my way to "be the best" or to get noticed. With that being said, I am 100% compliant. As a student and as an employee, I have always gone out of my way to do exactly what I am asked, when I am asked, and I don't complain about it. But with how competitive the job market is nowadays, my demeanor makes me nervous! A part of me is freaking out a little on the inside that I don't have what it takes, whatever it is.
Another part of me is chomping at the bit to make a change; to find my passion, and to find my niche. I want to figure out exactly what I want in life, not just within my career, but my personal life too. I know I want to get married, I know want to have kids, and I know I want to be happy. That's cliche and maybe a little silly, but it's true.
Like most people, I would ideally like to have a career where I can live comfortably aka make pretty good money. Having said that, I also want to look forward to going to work! I know too many people that hate their jobs. I never want to be one of those people. I'm determined not to be one of those people. I'm finding my way, and as scary as it is, I can't wait to see how my life unfolds.
