To all the college students and recent graduates...
This one is for all the young people out there. To all the college students and recent graduates. Life does not end after college. The best parts of your life are still to come.
The first year after college is tough. It’s a weird time in life where everything is uncertain. I know for me, I felt totally and completely lost and it took me a long time to realize that it’s okay to not have it all figured out.
It’s okay to not know what you want to do with your life. It’s okay not know what will come in the next year or month of your life. The truth is, most people don’t know! And the ones that think they know, aren’t always right.
So, how do you figure it out? How do you move forward in spite of uncertainty? The best advice I can give you is to identify what you do know and let that guide you. If you know you want to travel the world, then use that as your guide and build a future for yourself that allows you to do that. If you love to ski, find a job that allows you to indulge in that passion regularly! Whatever it is for you, trust it, stay true to yourself, let it guide you, and don’t sacrifice it for a job or career that doesn’t fit you.
Your twenties are for exploring your passions and discovering all that the world has to offer. The best years of your life are not over, in fact, they have barely even begun! You have the opportunity to create a life for yourself that you are truly proud of and you have plenty of time to make it happen. That’s pretty exciting!
