So you hit a bump down the road. Or you’ve just encountered a major failure in life. You get laid off. You are showing up at a job that you have no connection with. You have a sports injury that eliminates your career. You are retired and rediscovering purpose. You scroll down on social media with the illusion that everyone has it figured out…. well… everyone.. except you. I want to remind you. That I feel your pain. And we are all humans. Life is a cycle of valleys and hills. But we must keep on going. Because that oxygen in your lungs is a reminder that you still have something to contribute. And God is not finished with you yet.
…. so what should you do instead?
It is normal to come to a state in your life where you are uncertain about your next steps. As humans, we are on a journey of recreating ourselves and never becoming a finished product.
Have a notebook and a pen you can carry around and write down your ideas. Next, understand that everything is “figureoutable” by doing.
Experience allows you to learn about yourself. Figure out what you enjoyed, and what you disliked. Try new things with a belief that you can do anything. Utilize resources online to learn about industries and career of your interest, shadow or interview a professional in the field, and find out how you can test the waters via internship or volunteering.
Write goals. It is important to celebrate the small wins in life. Exercise that gratitude muscle, focus on your progress and deduce how to improve your habits, mindsets, and skills. Lastly, embrace uncertainty like an adventure. You will be amazed by your own self-discovery.
