Lately, I've been kind of struggling with the fact that I'm graduating in a few weeks and I still really don't know what I want to do. I've been praying about it and so far, I still have no idea. It's kind of frustrating sometimes too because people keep asking me what I'm going to do and honestly, I don't know what to tell them other than the simple answer...
"I'm probably going to just take general classes at the local community college for awhile and hopefully, I'll figure out what I want to do after awhile. I'm praying about it."
I do know that I want to do something that will be fun and not be stuck behind a desk all day. I want to help people and be able to minister to others. Maybe, something in the journalism field or something?
My dream is to open up my Etsy shop, work from home, and do blogging and photography on the side. I've seen many bloggers be successful like Gussy, Kim, Lindsay, Ilene, and many others. I would absolutely love to be a blogger that travels to different conferences one day to share my story of how I got started and encourage others. I have no idea what type of "career" that job description would be under and what to go to school for at this point, though...
My dad did tell me that he would like for me to at least get a two year degree in something, so that I'll always have it for future use. It is a good plan and I do want to continue my education, but I just have to figure out what God wants me to do. I've been praying about it and I know that He knows exactly what He wants me to do, but this waiting thing, it's really hard sometimes. I can only trust that He knows the plan and that He will reveal it to me in His perfect time. That's all I can do at this point, that and pray about it.
"Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own." -Matthew 6:34
Are you struggling with the same thing right now? What are some things that have helped you figure out what you want to do? Also, just for fun, what can you see me doing in the next five years? ;)
