There has always been this “knowing” inside me that everything will be ok. This was reinforced by my mom once telling me that she doesn’t worry about me because I always seem to land on my feet.
My life is an adventure of sorts, good and bad but I knew then and still know today that I will get through whatever is presented to me if I just accept whatever is there and know that the reason for it is something that I will likely discover further down the road.
With that being said it is easy to understand that I was never one of those Plan Your Whole Life people. Go to such and such a school, meet the love of your life, land the career that you studied for or perhaps wanted to be when you grew up, get married, buy a house, have a kid or two and live happily ever after.
I hated when the guidance counsellor or some other adult asked me at 15 years of age what my plans for the future were. Are you kidding me??? (Just to let you know, the way that I make a living now was not even in existence back then so I couldn’t have even told them if I wanted to.)
I hated when in job interviews I was asked the question “Where do you see yourself in 5 years?” I always told them what I knew they wanted to hear. Even then I knew that saying, “Oh, I have no clue; we’ll just see what happens” would not go over very well.
If you told me a year ago that I would be doing THIS, well to be honest I may have believed you more than if you had asked me about the previous things that I have done in my life when I have done them. I was planning on entering on a new path but in a different way. We’ll see where I land with this.
