I’ve asked myself this constantly. I have wants and desires, but are they considered goals? I am a college drop out, have debt, and am miserable. But, what 23 year old isn’t like that in some way or other? I want to be more than that. Is that a goal?
When I was a young girl, I was naiive enough to believe that the world would just accept me. I had high hopes that I would go through college, land a high paying job, be secure, and travel the world. There was no such thing as debt in my mind. I thought it would all be easy.
Well, guess what? I had a nice dose of reality. And, it sucked. Now, I find myself pondering and wondering. I am in a solid boat, but where am I going now? I have wants. I have desires.
I am painfully clueless.
How do I even begin to figure out what I want? I know that I want to have a home. I want to have a job that allows me the ability to travel. I want to write. I want to do… something. Maybe this is what it is like to be in your twenties. Just lost and sort of afloat with goals swimming beneath the surface.
