…and they’re changing fast!
Today is my first day unemployed! I found out in January that the company I worked for was closing and the day has finally come! While some people might be relieved by the 10 months to decide on what to do next, I saw this as a daunting deadline to figure out what I want to do with the rest of my life. In my short 23 years I’ve worked in a grocery store, clothing retail, and as an office assistant and I feel like I have no idea what I want to or, more importantly, who I want to be.
So, no what? 50 things. I was expressing my anxieties about my future to some friends and said “there are 50 different things I want to do – I wish I could just pick one”. A friend responded to this with “so why don’t you just do 50 different things?”. Something clicked. Why not? Why pick one linear path to success when I could do more? My ADHD has always limited me on the cookie cutter go-to-college-get-a-career-get-married-have-kids-die path, but creatively it has served me.
My two conclusions are this: I have no idea what I want to do to make money AND I’m learning how to work with myself and my brain.
Today is day one.
