“The Normal Life”

I am a firm believer that everything happens for a reason. We quit a job to get a better one, we break up with someone and end up finding an even better partner, we move one place to discover something new, etc.

Being a college student, I have come across so many people who believe everyone must attend college and finish it within 4 years and know EXACTLY what they want to do with their life by their sophomore year. I find it absolutely asinine that by only 19 or 20 years old we are supposed to have a specific career in mind and must know exactly how we want to spend the rest of our lives. Like WTF?  I don’t know about you but I don’t see myself doing “one specific thing” for the rest of my life. I love change and spontaneous things like traveling and a new set of clothes or a hair style. I don’t see the world in black and white. I believe that everyone’s path in life is different and it is selfish and ridiculous to say that one person must be like another. We are all trying to find who we are and what we believe in. If I could give anyone one piece of advice, it would be this: Don’t let others insecurities and doubts influence you. Make the best out of every situation and learn from your mistakes. Do what makes you happy because in the end, YOU are the one living your life.

One thought on ““The Normal Life”

  1. Great little post. I never understood why more “life training” and better guidance is not offered in highschool. I truly feel that most 18-20 year olds are not fully prepared for college/university life. I know I wasn’t! I still don’t know what I want to do…other than shop, run, travel and enjoy life!
