This weekend was spent lounging around the house and spending quality time with Fletch and my friends Cate and Luke. I wanted to get a lot done this weekend so I made a rather long to-do list. I am happy to say that I checked off a good amount of my tasks. Even with so much to do I still found time to reflect on my life, as I do too regularly.
I’ve been thinking a lot about what I want to do with my life (specifically with a career). I’m nearly 30 and feel like I haven’t figured things out. I like what I do now alright but I often wonder if it’s my calling. When people ask where I see myself in five years I don’t really know how to answer. I feel like I should know what I should be doing by now, right?
But then I think of a few amazing women I currently know in my professional life. One, currently a VP, has switched up her career several times. Another went back to school and went into communications after teaching for 20 years.
So, what am I looking for? I want to be surrounded by awesome individuals who are kind, thoughtful, hard workers and fun to be around. I want to do something that makes a difference, whether that’s at work or in my personal life. Ideally, I want to be a positive force.
We don’t all have the same paths. No one is traveling down the same road and that’s alright! What’s really important is to live our lives in our own ways and find happiness.
