“What’s next ?”

“what’s next?” “what’s your plan?” “when are you moving home?” “when are you getting a real job?” These are the questions that people keep asking me … Questions I have no clue what the answer is, and questions that quite frankly scare the hell out of me. I know I need to start thinking about my future, and actually make a plan but I have no idea. And it’s so scary. Why isn’t it okay to be like IDK and move on…

This reminds me of something an ex-boyfriend once introduced me to “everybody’s free (to wear sunscreen)” It’s like a song/essay :   Baz Luhrmann – Everybody’s Free (to Wear Sunscreen) Lyrics  (link to full lyrics) below are some of my favorite parts

Don’t be reckless with other people’s hearts/ Don’t put up with people who are reckless with yours Don’t waste your time on jealousy

Sometimes you’re ahead, sometimes you’re behind/ The race is long and in the end, it’s only with yourself. /Remember compliments you receive, forget the insults, if you succeed in doing this tell me how. /Keep you old love letters, throw away your old bank statements.

Don’t feel guilty if you don’t know what you want to do with your life./The most interesting people I know didn’t know at 22 what they wanted to do with their lives/ Some of the most interesting 40-year-olds I know still don’t

Maybe you’ll marry, maybe you won’t/ Maybe you’ll have children, maybe you won’t/ Maybe you’ll divorce at 40, maybe you’ll dance the ‘Funky Chicken’ on your 75th wedding anniversary. / Whatever you do, don’t congratulate yourself too much or Berate yourself either. Your choice are half chance, so are everybody else’s/

Be careful whose advice you buy but be patient with those who supply it/ Advice is a form of nostalgia, dispensing it is a way of fishing the past.

Anyway I just remembered this and how much these words speak to me.. especially “don’t feel guilty if you don’t know what you want to do with your life” … I don’t know and there’s no reason I should feel bad about it. When I’m ready I will know.

    1. When you’re asked those questions it’s so frustrating … It makes you feel like you need to know the answer, when in all reality it’s okay not to know. If you have any questions on my traveling and how I do it feel free to contact me :)! Thanks for checking out my blog
