I've been thinking...

           I've been thinking a lot lately about what I want to do in my life.
I know that sounds quite deep, but I feel that normally by now everyone has figured out what they want to be, who they want to be. They want to make a difference, they want to be successful. But me? I have no idea what I'm going to do!
I know I'm not the only one, but I wish I could decide on my ambition. I know what the kind of things I want to do are. I know I want to go back to Africa, and possibly do some charity work over there. I know I want to travel to the most amazing and beautiful places. I know I want to take a gap year - to experience life how others experience it. I know I want to learn about different cultures and different music.

But in order to do all of that, first I need to figure out what I want to do here. For the next few years I'll still be in education. Within those few years I'm going to have to make some decisions about what I want to study. But how do you decide? How do you know you're doing the right thing? How do you know that the options you've chosen are going to lead you in the right direction?

I believe that the truth is - no one knows. But somehow, it all works out, doesn't it? Sometimes you might not get everything you ever wanted, but everything seems to fall into place. Isn't it weird how one decision you make now, can affect your future; who you'll make friends with; what kind of person you will become.
I know this blog is 'deep' and 'meaningful' but sometimes we all need to step back before we forget what we aim to do!

I'm not asking whoever is reading this to go away and take a depressing look on their lives or anything like that, I just wanted to say this just to take some perspective!

Please don't think I'm being all depressive and weird haha! But what are your ambitions? I want to know what you plan to do! 

I''ll see you next week!
