Is it okay to not have it all figured out? +1 major life tip
Figuring Life out
Figured out life? – Have you ever sat down to go over your life plan and suddenly, realize that you don’t even know what you want? Some of us literally don’t know what career we want to go into yet, we don’t know what we want to achieve during our time here on earth yet and that’s absolutely alright. On the other hand, there are some people that seemingly have everything figured out.
This is something I’ve had to teach myself to be okay with and something I’ve had to remind myself of daily. Figured out means ‘understood’ or ‘solved’. Saying that someone has everything figured out is like saying the person has his destiny planned out.
Sometimes we overthink this and get worried over nothing. What some people don’t know is that sometimes, we have to be lost to find ourselves. Actually, the only thing constant in life is change. It might feel like others are way ahead of you but it’s all part of the process and it will lead you to the person you are meant to be.
As much as we shouldn’t, we compare our lives to that of the people around us and wonder how they make it look so easy. The career, the family, the lifestyle, everything, which is something I can admit to being guilty of. I have had to learn to accept that it’s okay to not always have it all planned out. So when the world throws a curveball, it can sometimes feel like you’ve struck out, when really you’ve hit a home run.
One thing we should always remember is that everyone has their own timeline. We need to go at our own pace and stop comparing ourselves to others. I’m not trying to say that you should just keep doing the same thing every day waiting for a miracle or something. There’s this song that goes “I’m a living breathing walking talking moving miracle”. So stop waiting for a miracle to happen. You are that miracle!
As long as you’re gently pushing yourself every day towards the person you want to become, you’re doing alright. After all, slow and steady wins the race.
Figuring out everything life has to offer is not a goal you should strive for, I would recommend you follow the notable Latin phrase “carpe diem” meaning “seize the day”.
Have dreams, visions, and goals you wish to accomplish, and make plans to set out and accomplish them. Accomplishing them will in return bring greater satisfaction, will result in stories worth telling to family and friends, and most importantly cultivate a slow and fulfilling path to a prosperous legacy.
“You don’t have to go fast… you just have to go.”Wise person
“The wise do things slowly, because they love it.”Maxime Lagacé
“Long-term consistency trumps short-term intensity.”Brue lee
“Slow and steady wins the race.”Aesop
The following quotes are proverbs that signify that speed is not the key and or principle virtue to a living fulfilling life but rather it is the determination a person has within.
Most importantly, the bible in Jeremiah 29 verse 11 reassures us that there is no need to speed through this life or worry that we haven’t got everything planned out early, “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.”
Remember it is vital to maintain faith and work at your own pace to build a legacy befitting of future generations to come.
