#IHaveNoClueWhatImDoingWithMyLife


You know when you're a kid in elementary school and they ask you "What do you want to be when you grow up?" I'm like 99.9% sure I couldn't answer then either... or maybe my parents just never saved my grade school masterpieces. But you know what? I'm okay with it. I WANT to be unsure. I WANT to have unlimited options. And I didn't quite realize I was okay with the unknown until I started blogging. 

Looking back I've pretty much done everything work-wise a 25 year old girl can do. I've coached a swim team of over 120 kids, I've worked retail, I've worked restaurants, I've had desk jobs, I've worked independent catering events, I've been a manager, I've had a sales team, I was a barista at a coffee shop, I've been an assistant and a certified licensing specialist, when I was 15 I worked in the sketchiest wing delivery place in Charlotte. Point being, I like to think of myself as "well-rounded"... or at least really good at faking it :)

One thing I do know is that each day is a gift. I'm going to wake up thankful to see the sun (or clouds, thanks N.C.) and I firmly believe that I can do anything I put my mind to... I just don't know what that "thing" is yet. Small changes + time = drastic results. Nothing happens overnight and I certainly don't expect to become successful (in whatever role) immediately. 




In summary, I have no idea where I want to be in 10 years. Although my answer is kinda cheating the question, it's truthful. Maybe I'll figure it out tomorrow, maybe I won't. 

PS. enjoy these throwback photos from my teenage years/jobs :)

 Here's to not knowing and being the best me that I can be! 
See you tomorrow for Day 3!
