New Perspective


It's nice to get a new perspective on situations. Whether it's from family, friends or complete strangers who don't even know that their helping you! Lately I have been feeling a little lost. Or as Elizabeth of Delightfully Tacky says in this post 'like a ship with no sails set adrift in the middle of a sea.' And with that post she has given me a whole new perspective.

Because I'm coming up to the end of University, everyone I talk to always asks the same question 'what are you planning on doing afterwards?' usually the answer is '......erm.....I'll get back to you' then I make a quick exit. But lately I've been asking myself the same question. What do I want to do afterwards? I only have 4, 5 weeks tops until I'm done and out in the big world and I am so excited about that but I haven't even begun to think about what I will do. I know what I want to do and I know that it is going to take time, so when people ask that question I have no answer because straight after I have nothing. It's looming on the horizon and I can see it so I know its going to happen, but right now I feel like i'm not doing anything. But that isn't true. I'm doing loads! I'm networking, I'm getting my degree, I'm applying for jobs, I'm creating things daily, I'm planning and saving, I'm making new friends, I'm living and having a darn good time at it too. So I'm not stood still tapping my toes and waiting for the next thing. I'm preparing my life, my body and my heart for all the good things I can see on the horizon and I'm excited. So excited for the future, I just need to not loose heart and remember all these things that are amazing now and will make the future that much better.

  1. This is a really good post, when I read it the other day it made me feel all warm and fuzzy :)

    I hate people asking me what I'm going to do now as if I'm directionless and lacking any drive, which I'm not. I'm not ready to jump into a 9 to 5 job, I want to try a different direction and people don't always get this.

    I think even on the days when you have a lot of self doubt about things you just have to think that tomorrow will be better and it is only a momentary lapse and you have to remember that the motivation and desire to make things happen is still there.

    Think I might have gone off on a bit of a tangent there but hey! Sorry for the ranting :)
