Have you chosen your major yet?
Like, REALLY chosen it?
I think I have. I chose Business Management, and then I realized that was wrong, so I chose Entrepreneurship. Entrepreneurship makes sense because I want to start my own business. But, I wonder if I’m choosing the wrong major. What if it’s supposed to be English or Environmental Studies or Journalism?
When I think about this, a little Cher starts running around in my headspace trying to close all of the doors that my confusion opened.
Every day I wake up in the morning, do my ballet barre routine, and walk ten feet to my office, I wonder if I’m making the right decisions.
When I open my daily to-do list, start my Toggl timer, and grab some breakfast, I wonder if I should be in school right now instead of taking a semester off.
Then, I start working, and I get totally lost in my tasks.
I know that Hero School, the nonprofit I work for, is exactly where I’m supposed to be.
I know that because I’m in a safe environment where I can screw up, get over it, and move on. It’s a place that is prepping me for leadership, as the future executive director for Hero School or the next CEO of my own business. When I’m writing copy for the next newsletter or talking to volunteers and donors through email, I feel extremely, completely, and fully happy. Although, as the day winds down and the quiet all around me allows me to think, worries can completely knock me out.
I go to sleep attempting to solve the problems one by one, and I’m slowly knocking them back out. It’s part revenge and part relief. But, I’m taking care of them and I keep a line in my pocket that says, “I’m exactly where I’m supposed to be right now.”
What are you worried about right now? Leave three things that are making the little you in your headspace run around like crazy.
