No plan? Well that is fine


May is Graduation Month; very soon, hundreds of students will move on to the next stage of their life with a lot of focus on high school and college students. Some of these students have a detailed map of where they want to be next and what life will be like, which is fantastic for those individuals. It is a great idea to have a plan.

But that is not who I’m talking to this time. I’m talking to those who do not have everything planned out. Those with lingering questions in the back of their minds, such as “What now” or “Should I.” Those thoughts can keep you up at night and cause anxiety and panic attacks. I know because I have been there.

I will not go into detail as that would take up much time. But I will say it is okay not to have a plan or everything figured out.

Sometimes you need time before rushing headfirst into a decision, which may result in short-term gains and life-long losses. Sometimes you need to take a step back and gather your thoughts. Now I’m not saying you need to sit on your butt and ponder your life away. That, too, will take you nowhere. But I would encourage you to take some time and talk to some family, friends, and even others, depending on what you want to do next in life.

Life is going to be unpredictable and downright terrifying sometimes. I want to remind you again that it is okay not to have everything planned out. Heck, I was in my late 20s before I finally knew what I wanted to do. Even then, it was a rough idea. It was not until I was in my early 30s that I committed to the idea.

I’ll stop rambling, but I want to tell you everything will be alright. You may not have your life figured out, but in all honesty, who does?
