What do you do when you don’t know what to do

P.S. I don’t drink coffee, I just liked this picture

I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately (maybe a bit too much, if i’m honest). I think its probably because of where I am at with my life. I recently graduated, had an awesome internship, started another internship and quit, decided to start a business and now here I am thinking about my next steps and whether what I ventured into is really what I want to do.

I have had countless thoughts and internal breakdowns as I have pondered on my life. I’m constantly wondering about my passion, my impact on the world and the biggest question of them all is what do I do right now when I don’t know what to do.

If you’re reading this expecting an answer then unfortunately, I don’t have one since i’m also on that quest as well. I have watched soooo many motivational videos and sometimes when I think that I may have just got it, I lose whatever it is I thought I had gotten.

It really sucks to be in such a position but weirdly enough, there’s something encouraging about it. It could be the optimist in me but somewhere deep inside me, I know that its okay to feel this way and its okay to not have it together all the time. Knowing this has saved me from having an even worse breakdown.

I’m not really sure where I was going with this but I just wanted to let it out. All I can say is that,when you have moments like this, take a deep breath, watch that movie or listen to that song that you like and remember that you don’t always have to have it figured out and that its okay to not not know what to do sometimes.
