I've been thinking about my career path. Aka, I mentally look forward and see nothing but cloudy fog, a mass of nothing, a pocket of emptiness. I know what I love and what I'm good at, but I don't know how to marry those into a career. It's a strange way of feeling lost.
Anyway, I hoped that by writing these words my thoughts would become less hectic and more along the lines of, "Just breathe, Shirene, everything's going to be okay, you'll see." And... that's only sort of happening.
I guess the realistic way to think of all this is that I won't be able to figure it all out tonight. I won't be able to get rid of all the fog, draw the path or completely fill the pocket of darkness with light by the next sunrise. It's just going to take time.
Also, I think this is one of those situations where one has to tell oneself to just have a little faith. I'm one of those people that like to plan everything ahead in specific detail before taking the next step forward, so that mindset is something I'll have to try and get used to.
When was the last time you found yourself in such a situation? How did you come to terms with it?
