If you told my 19-year-old self what my 29-year-old self is up to career-wise, she would be like 😱 what the hell happened?!
Everything I do now is a massive departure from what I had envisioned.
When things don’t go to plan (which, hello, has been all of 2020 and 2021) we need skills on how to pivot and cope.
Other examples of life throwing you a curveball could be:
- you get to college and realize you actually hate what you chose as your major
- a long term relationship ended unexpectedly
- you never got the promotion you wanted, or you want to change career paths
I’ve experienced all of these in one form of another over the past 10 or so years 🙋♀️
My top tip when life throws something like this is to just have an open mind. It may not necessarily be a bad thing, it’s just not my original plan.
Having confidence in yourself that no matter what, you’ll get yourself through it WILL get yourself through it!
I’m beyond grateful for how my life has shaken out, even if it’s a 180 from how I thought. More on that for another post... but if you’re facing life changes or debating on making one, go for it. Follow your gut and trust yourself ✨
