Good Morning Daydreamers,
Have you ever woken up one morning and thought, how did I get here? Not because you were up partying the night before…but because sometimes you don’t stop to reflect on life? Growing up I envisioned my life going in such a different direction. Now I’m not saying I am unhappy with where I am, I have just been reflecting a lot lately.
1,2, even 5 years ago if you would have said that I would be an event planner I would have said no way! How would I possibly even begin down that path. If you would have asked me if I would be blogging, I would have said what the heck do you mean blogging? Me writing? If you would have said that I would be engaged and living with the love of my life by age 22 I would have laughed in your face! The changes that have happened in the last few years have been so unexpected, but unexpectedly fantastic.
Growing up I was always so unsure about what I wanted to do. For a long time I thought I wanted to be a teacher, part of me would love to follow that path one day, but most likely in a college setting. In university I did forest conservation and was hell-bent and determined to save the planet. I am still trying my best to do so, not with my career, but through my own personal day-to-day choices. I have always been into events and playing the role, but I never knew how to reach that goal. It was not something that was offered to me coming out of highschool, so how would I even know where to begin. I am just glad I found Conestoga and decided to go back to school.
When we are younger, I feel that we look at age as the determining factor of life’s major milestones. I still remember being 10 and not being able to wait to be 16, because that would surely mean I was a grown up. I know I am on the right path, but by 24 I thought I would be way more settled down as I am. I know some friends might think…but you are settled down. Yes, I am engaged and live with D, but my career is still very new and D and I are still adjusting to full-time working lives. It’s funny what twists and turns life gives you along the way, I am happy with the direction I am going, but I am not quite where I want to be.
D and I still have a wedding to plan. I still need to land that perfect job. I/we still need to travel the world. I try to live in today and enjoy what I have right now, but I can’t stop thinking about what I haven’t done yet and how I am going to get there.
Right now, I am enjoying life, but everyday I am working towards a career and mentally planning my wedding…I really don’t think that will stop until I have those two things. Good news is I think both are just around the corner…I just have to be a little more patient…well for a little while at least.
