You probably think I’m a hypocrite, which is completely understandable because there are days where I feel like a hypocrite. How can I have a blog about being blissful and leading a life surrounding yourself with your passions—yet I’m still questioning and understanding my own bliss in life?
Trust me, there are more days where I’m sitting wrecking my own brain contemplating the same thing.
The problem is, I know I’ve found my bliss. I’ve thought this so many times. I think that’s one of the main problems with being a person who is passionate about several things. When I picture my life in five years, I don’t see myself in one set career path. I see myself doing several things. I see myself living a life I love, but I also see myself always looking to progress and change.
I don’t believe I’m set to be in one set position for my entire working career. With having several passions comes a desire for a versatile career where I can combine all those passions into one. This is easier said than done, which is why I don’t want to settle for only one career path. And that’s okay. I know many people who know their passion in life. For some people, they want to be a stay-at-home mom and raise a family. Others see themselves running their own side-hustle turned business while working from home.
Me on the other hand, I could see myself in SO. MANY. DIFFERENT. JOBS. And I think that’s secretly a good thing because it helps me keep an open mind about my future. I don’t have one path set out for me. I have options for myself, and I would like to keep it that way. Do I know what direction I will go in for the next few years? No. But am I excited to find out? Absolutely.
That’s the beautiful thing about not having everything figured out right now. It’s okay to still be on the hunt for your bliss and passion in life. It’s okay if you’re still trying to narrow down your options for your future. For me, I know what I’m passionate about. But I’m not sure how I want those passions to manifest in my life down the road. And I’m learning to accept that that’s okay.
Instead of pressuring yourself to always have a plan, practice patience. Time is a beautiful thing, and it’s important to know that everything will happen in perfect time. Don’t rush because you think you’ll be happier when *blank* happens. Learn to enjoy the journey rather than rush toward the destination.
