First of all, welcome to my blog. I hope you will enjoy following my journey.
This isn’t the first blog that I have had and I doubt it’ll be my last but it is one that has a focus that I don’t have to hide from anyone. One in which, I hope to open my eyes and meet people with.
In the past, my blogs have been a personal journal that I kept online to write about my thoughts and feelings. I wrote when I felt like it and often, it was just an inner dialogue to help me sort through my thoughts and feelings. Writing has always been an outlet for me to figure things out and to deal with my emotions.
For the last couple of years, I’ve struggled to find my passion, to find out what I wanted to do with my life. I felt stuck and I couldn’t get myself out. I didn’t have the ambition or the drive that I saw some people have and the more I surrounded myself by those people, the more I wished I was doing something better with my life.
Let’s face it, I have a university degree and I work part-time in retail. That is really not saying much about myself. I don’t even have the drive to get myself out of that part-time job and into a full-time job. Ok, that’s a lie, I am just afraid, like I have no other job experience and don’t feel like I can get any other job. What all of this has taught me in the past couple of years is that I need to be sure of what I want to do with my life because I will be stuck there probably for the rest of my life. So, I went on a quest to figure out what I wanted to do and spent that last couple years searching for that.
Now it’s time to move on to the next chapter of my life. Attaining my goal of becoming a psychologist, a counselor. These last couple of years, I realized what I do best and what I like doing is caring about people and helping them through their struggles. I hope that this blog will help me get to that goal.
