The future.

Wednesday, April 03, 2013

The future is a scary thing because you have no idea what's going to happen. Will you be successful? Will you find your true love? Will this even matter?

As a senior in high school about to graduate in a couple weeks, I can feel the pressure building up. What college am I going to? What am I going to major in? Will I be okay financially? Will I be able to keep my grades up? Will I be able to get a good job?

As graduation gets closer, I'm going to have to start answering these questions, and fast, but what do you do if you don't have the answer? I've never really thought about my future; I mean sure I've dreamed of being a successful magazine editor but the thing is, that's not the only thing I've dreamed about doing. Some days I want to be a successful editor, others I want to be able to capture moments on camera and some days I even wonder what it would be like to plan weddings for the rest of my life.

My older sister has been a huge help in calming me down because she explained how college isn't a place to set your future into stone but a place to explore, figure out what interests you, what you feel like you could see yourself doing in ten years. You should definitely take college seriously, but you also shouldn't be afraid to explore different options.

I guess in a way this is like a confirmation to myself that even though I don't know what the future holds, I know I have the rest of my life to figure it out. College definitely scares me, but I'm also excited to see what's in store for me. I'll just have to wait and see and take life as it comes, one step at a time.

Don't let the fear of the unknown keep you from doing what you love. Enjoy your life and keep doing what you do!
