Follow your dreams is a saying that I’m hearing over and over again. And over and over again I find myself asking, “What if you don’t know your dreams?”
I’m beginning to hate that saying.
I’m all for doing what you love and loving what you do. If you know what your passion is, then by all means, go for it. Pursue it. Don’t hold back. But what if you don’t know what your passion is?
A lot of people my age appear to have it all together, but I’ll openly admit that I have no idea what I’m doing. No idea where I’m going, and no idea where I want to go. On one hand, not knowing is fun and exciting, because it allows for open-mindedness, creativity, and spontaneity. On the other hand, it’s frustrating, because indecisiveness leaves me paralyzed at times. I feel stuck.
I don’t want to feel stuck anymore.
Through taking advantage of several resources such as blogs, books, and speeches, I’ve found several ideas to try that might help me understand what I enjoy doing and discover what I want to do in the future. This is the beginning of a new journey for me, one that I plan to document here. I’m inviting you to share in the journey, and maybe we can learn something together.
