Let me tell you a not so secret secret. I’m turning 30 in less than a month.
And do you know what I’ve realized? I’ve done nothing with my life. Not in the sense of I haven’t experienced stuff or gone on adventures and had a good life in general. Because I’ve ticked off all those boxes.
But I am not anything.
And I realize this might be some early middle life crisis talking but I feel like I have nothing to show for.
I’ve started studying what feels like a million different things but I’ve never had the motivation, patient or dedication to stick to anything.
I have a job that I’m pretty indifferent about but I can’t think of anything else to do so I stick with it.
I’ve travelled around the world, seen different places and cultures but at the end of the day all I want to do is close the door behind me and spend time with myself and my dog. Can you be a traveling hermit with a furry friend?
Anyway, what I’ve gathered from my musings the last couple of days is that I need to make a change in my life. I’m not sure what that change is going to be. It doesn’t have to be major in the turn-my-life-upside-down-way but something has to happen.
I’m giving myself until the 3rd of September (my birthday- yay!), which very conveniently happens to be on a Sunday, to figure this out. I am a big believer in deadlines so this seems fitting.
So I have 27 days to figure out my life. Go Brain- do your thing!
