Have you ever woken up with a haze of confusion of where you are actually heading in the future. The life stressors can get ahold of you in the most irrelevant time of your life. If your a high school student or University student I am sure you have pondered this frequently. What do I actually want to do for the rest of my life. I use to ponder on this when I left school, thinking I was suppose to have the answer to life’s mysteries as soon as I graduated, as that is what school makes it seem is a necessity to succeed in life.
Until this year (2015) I have realised it isn’t the way to a happy and successful life. No matter who you are, you are most likely going to change your original path of thought as you grow and experiment with life but what teachers and lecturers didn’t explain, is that is how you become the person you’ve always wanted to become.
With only 3 months left of my undergraduate degree people always say “so what you gonna do?” Well I have no idea, as long as i’m happy doing what ever it is i’m doing i’m sure I will feel successful.
Also, we all do different things throughout our life that is rewarding for ourselves but we do not realise that it is shaping the person we are. I have been coaching rowing for four years to 13 to 15 year old boys and girls. Until last week I did not realise that for four years I have been mentoring these children and been apart of shaping their own lives in and out of the sporting realm.
Once in a while we need to stand back and appreciate what we have done successfully and actually comprehend how all these jobs, hobbies, adventures and people have helped us to become the person we are today and the person we are becoming for the future.
Make sure what ever age you are that you are living day by day the life you want, that way at the end of the day you have lived your whole life being happy and successful in your own right.
