Not a Clue

I have no idea what I’m doing. How many times does that sentence cross your mind in a day? It’s so easy to look at other people and remark on how wonderfully successful and put together they seem to be when in reality, we’re all thinking the same thing. 

It drives me insane at times. There are so many questions that it feels like I should have found answers to by now. How does another degree compare to a few more years of work experience? What are the best ways to cultivate in-person relationships amid a global pandemic? Where do I want to be in five years? If I had to describe myself in one word, what would it be? These and many more plague my lonely angst riddled brain in the quieter moments when working from home or else relaxing solo style during yet another uneventful weekend. The faintest hint of monotony seeps into our daily routine if we’re not careful. 

But it’s okay to not have all the answers. No one does. We’re all just human, going about our lives the best way we know how. What question are you answering in your life?


POTD: Swimming Upstream

Do you ever have those moments when you feel like a very small fish swimming upstream, fighting against a roaring current instead of flowing with it? Have you ever finished with a rough work day and thought, “Nope… That definitely wasn’t it. Better luck tomorrow?” 

It’s okay. We’ve all been there. It’s days like these that make the good times all the more special. Sometimes you just can’t help feeling burnt out even when you think you have no right to be. For whatever reason, things didn’t go your way today but life is full of ups and downs. You might be struggling to see the silver lining right now but it really does get better. 

Always keep looking up because you can move mountains and take whatever life throws at you even if you’re not sure exactly how yet.
