What do you do if you don’t know what you want to be when you grow up?2

Believe it or not, if you’re feeling this way, you are nowhere near alone.

Blame it on unrealistic expectations… blame it on choosing the wrong major in college… heck, blame it on the weather.

Regardless of your age, you shouldn’t feel bad if you don’t know what you want to be when you grow up.

It’s a hard decision to make, and sometimes the path to happiness simply takes time.

1. Realize That It's Okay

Some people know what they want to do from age three.

Me?

I wanted to be a princess.

Oddly enough, they don’t teach Princess 101 in college, so I went the next best route, and majored in Theatre.

And while my public speaking skills are now fab, in retrospect, I know that I was setting myself up for confusion and aimlessness upon graduation.

But that’s alright, because that aimlessness allowed me to fully realize my love of writing, and my future became clear.2

So if you don’t know what you want to be when you grow up yet, don’t stress.

Not every path to the future is the straightest line;

take your time, and it’ll come to you eventually.
