Sometimes we don’t choose our path, sometimes our path chooses us.
My whole life, I’ve planned things “perfectly”. I knew I wanted a career in education, and I knew how I was going to get there. During my junior year of high school, I planned out the next fifteen years of my life, neglecting to realize that I also needed to have a life.
Meticulously planning life events caused my anxiety to spiral. While most days I’m grateful for the path I set for my future self, it also has its downfalls. Plans change! And I’m learning to be okay with that.
Right now I'm at a major crossroads and trying to figure out which path to take is scary AF, but it doesn’t have to be.
Sometimes you just gotta let go of your controlling tendencies and let the universe do its thing.
Go with the flow
This was a hard pill to swallow. Recently I’ve been presented with some really amazing opportunities. Within the past few months, I’ve been promoted twice at work and received some wonderful internship opportunities that would enhance my writing and career as an educator. While I wish I could be in four places at once, I can’t, and neither can you! I had to stop worrying so much about the future that lied ahead because it was taking a toll on me mentally. Actively becoming a more go-with-the-flow type of person has really helped chill me the hell out. I wasn’t going to get anywhere spinning in constant circles. So instead, I took a deep breath and set my worries free.
