Is It A Bad Thing To Not Know What You Want?

What do you want to do as a career when you're older? Where do you want to live? What's your next steps?

These are questions that I get asked a lot and also think about myself. If I'm honest, I have absolutely no idea what the answer is for any of them. But that got me thinking, I personally believe that it's completely fine to not know. So, as always, I decided to sit down and write about my thoughts on this subject.

'Don't be in a rush to figure everything out. Embrace the unknown and let your life surprise you.'

Let's start with career. This is something that you're always asked about, even when you were little. But now that I'm older, it's becoming more of a serious question. I have a few ideas of what I could see myself doing, but I don't have a 100% answer. My ideas are so varied and I can't say that I know enough to go into these careers. Personally, I think it takes time to figure out what you want to do. You may fall into a job that you weren't planning on and end up loving it. You may end up having 10 jobs before you find the perfect one. Your dream job may not even exist yet or you may not even know that it's out there. There are so many different reasons why you don't know what is it you want to be, but that's ok.

The good thing about deciding, is that you have got time. It doesn't matter if you're 20 or 40, you can still change job paths if you want to. I am currently in a job that I do really love. I wasn't expecting to fall into the role but it kind of just happened and I am so happy. I wouldn't say that it is what I want to do forever and my dream career, but it's a good role for now where I am learning so much. In my eyes, I will always want to do something creative. I am not exactly sure which direction I want that to go in, but my dream is to use my creativity as part of my everyday job. I am still thinking about it and deciding what job may be right for me, but at the moment, that's as far as it's going. I will eventually discover what I want to do full time, but for now, I am happy where I stand.

'There is no shortcut. It takes time to build a better, stronger version of yourself.' 

Next up is the one that I think about a lot and that's where do I see myself living. As you guys probably already know, Brighton is always on my mind. It's one of my favourite places which I love. I 100% want to live there at some point in my life, but at the moment, it's not right. I must say that it is rather expensive to live there but I totally understand that. Little old me can't really afford to move myself down there just yet, but hopefully one day! So at the moment I am in the situation of wanting to move out, but not sure where. Luckily I am still only 20, so I have loads of time to choose the right place for me. I am not ready to buy a house and settle down as that's far too soon, but, I am ready to move out and have my own space.

The process of moving out is 100% going to be something that I am going to want to document on the blog. I was thinking about tips and advice posts, interior posts and all things along those lines. If anyone has any of these posts on their blog, please feel free to send me the links as I would love to read them. If anyone also has anything specific they want me to cover on this topic, please let me know!

Have you ever been asked by your family members, so, what are your next plans? I feel like this is something that aunties and other relatives like to ask a lot! For some reason, people always like to have a next step plan. I'm not saying that this is a bad thing, because I 100% agree that there always should be something you're working towards. But, I also agree that it's completely fine if you're just happy with what you've got and don't want anything to change. For me, the answer to a next steps question is one I am also unsure of. I do know that I want to look into moving out and start thinking about potential career paths, but I have nothing set in stone as I am still trying to figure a lot out. 

'She designed a life she loved.'

The people who have set goals laid out and know exactly where they are going, I salute you! It is so amazing to know people who have a clear idea of what they want. It's impressive as I know how tough it can be. But if you're like me and are still in the figuring out stage, then let's be in it together. The great thing about life is that there are no age limits of when things need to be done by and nothing has to be permanent, you can change things at any time! 

I'm hoping this post made some kind of sense or it may have just been my random thoughts written down. Either way, I hope some of you took something from this post and gave some of you the hopeful reminder that its ok to not know what you want. If you have no clue of what you want to do as a career, can't even imagine of moving out of home, and just basically have no idea of what's next for you...guess what, totally fine!
