Year of Me

Spring Break was last week.  It began with the celebration of my birthday.  I turned a large odd number this year.  It feels weird because I don’t know how to feel.  Am I supposed to feel older? I don’t.  I’m still whining on Facebook about not being able to find my favorite cereal at the store.

When you begin a new chapter in the book of your life, you begin to think back on how the plot of your story is going?  There are some things that I wish I had already accomplished by now.  You know how you see yourself in a different place in life because you told yourself that when you hit a certain age, you should be doing ___________.  My thing is, I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up.  So my fill in the blank needs to be filled in again.  I thought I knew.  I spent a lot of money (still spending a lot of money) on what I thought I knew I wanted.   I thought I would have so many things figured out by now….

Only a few people know what they want to be when they are 18.  I learned more about myself after graduating from college, so change feels too late.  I sometimes wonder if I made the right choices in my collegiate decisions.  Life would be so vastly different if I had only been given certain information about career choices, but I had made up my mind about what I was going to do and I already knew the college that would help make it achievable.  If I had really gone to college for me, things would be different….

But it’s too late to look back and have regrets.  This year is going to be different.  I will be focused on discovering what I am good at and work hard so that I can profit from those skills.  I won’t allow fear of failure or fear of being uninteresting stop me.  This year I will focus on being a better me and finding what makes me happy.  My collegiate choices led me to this moment, so let’s discover why.  This year will be different…this is the year of me!

What discoveries have you made about yourself?  What goal would you like to achieve?
