What Are You Going To Do With Your Life?
By Average Jane • May 23, 2016
Money is the route of all evil. The older I become the more I realize how true this statement is. I will be graduating next week and all of my family keep asking me "what are you going to do with your life?" the answer is I'm not completely sure. I imagine I will go to college to complete my bachelors degree while working a part time job, then I will pursue a career in the field I studied where I will work a 40+ hour work week to pay for countless bills.
Realization recently dawned on me... I am only 18. I shouldn't have my life planned out. I should be flying by the seat of my pants and waiting for adventures to show me where I need to be. How can I know where I will be in 5 years when I don't have a clue what I will be doing next week. After stressing about my future all year long I found my peace, I realized it is okay. It is okay for me to not have a clue what I want to do with the rest of my life, after all coming from a small town with a graduating class of 51, this is all I have ever known. I have many years ahead of me to get everything figured out. Maybe God has a plan for me that consists of more than getting married and raising 3 children in the same town I grew up in. (Not that there is anything wrong with that.)
Maybe God wants me to travel, to put my feet in different waters, and to see the world before I settle down. I have a whole lot of living to do on this earth and I don't plan on wasting a single day staying in the same place. I will live life to the fullest and leaving something good in my path. I may not change the world, but maybe I can change the world for one person. All it takes is one person.
