“The only things in life that are certain are death and taxes”- Benjamin Franklin
Not being sure of what will happen in the future is a fate we will all suffer in our lives from time to time, it’s just a fact of life unfortunately. It’s not something we ourselves can control so we shouldn’t let it control us.
As the finish line for my master’s is coming in to view, naturally enough I find myself looking to the future and all I can see is a big ‘ol cloud of uncertainty and scariness and that in itself is daunting. I feel like a kid all over again, worrying about what I want to be when I grow up.
Now don’t get me wrong, I do have goals and ambitions for my career/life and believe me, I will do everything in my power to make that happen but knowing how I’m going to get there isn’t just as easy to envision. I keep worrying that things won’t pan out like I hoped. But then I realised, that’s all I’m doing is worrying myself over something that I cannot control right now. Sure, I can try to make decisions now that will help me reach where I’d like to be in the future but in the grand scheme of things what will be will be.
So what I’m trying to say is that no matter how much I worry about the future and how the rest of my life will turn out, there’s still nothing I can do to control what happens. I repeat my mantra every time I find my mind wandering and worrying and that mantra is- “If it’s meant for you it won’t pass you by”.
