It’s Okay to be Unsure About Your Life.

I recently had a bit of a freak out over my life. I suddenly realised that I no longer want to do what I’ve been planning to do over the last few years. I wanted to give up on everything I had worked towards.

I’ve wanted to be a makeup artist for so long, and I spent a good few years in college studying and training to be a makeup artist, and I absolutely loved doing it. I learnt everything from fashion, beauty, face and body painting, special effects and hair styling, and I love being so creative and artistic all the time. Yet after taking a year off before going to uni, I suddenly came to the realisation that I don’t want to do this as a career. I don’t want to go to university for 3 years and spend thousands and thousands of pounds on something that I no longer love. That would be a waste.

Telling my mum that I had changed my mind was awful, but in the end I had no reason to stress as she was so supportive of my choice. She genuinely wants what is best for me, and if I’m not happy then why should I continue with it for another 3 years.

So the question is now, what do I want to do? And the answer is I have no idea! I’m 22 and I have no idea what I want to do with my life, which kind of stressed me out to start with.

Over the last couple of days I started to piece my life together and figure out what I want to do, and for the now I don’t want to give myself a solid plan. Like I said, I’m 22 and in the grand scheme of things, thats not old at all. I have years to figure myself out, so I’m going to take it step by step.

For now my plan is to get myself a full time job, and save money. One of the things I’m desperate to do is go travelling. I’ve seen some of Europe throughout my life, but I want to see more. So at the moment, my plan is to interrail around Europe in the summer of 2019. That gives me a year and a half to save my money, and have the experience of a life time. I’m going to talk more about my travelling plans in a separate blog post, so keep an eye out for that. Other than that, I want to work a lot on this blog. I absolutely love blogging, and writing whats on my mind, so hopefully this blog will become bigger and better. And if i do go travelling that will make for some amazing content, which I’m already excited to write!

So the purpose of this post is to basically say that its okay to not know what you want to do. These things will come to you in time, and I’m okay with waiting for that moment.

Dream Destinations

If you know me, you’ll know that I love to travel. I love to wander around beautiful cities, taking in all of the beautiful sites and exploring all of the hidden places. Over the years I’ve been lucky enough to visit a fair few different places, but I do have a list of cities that I desperately want to go to and see.

New Orleans

I don’t know what it is about New Orleans, but everything about it just appeals to me. It look so beautiful and there sees to be so much history there. I feel like I could wander around for hours there without getting bored.

LA

LA has always been on my list of places to visit. Everything from the beaches, to the shopping looks amazing. There are so many iconic places to visit there, such as the Hollywood sign, Downtown LA, Disney and so many more. And of course there is also the chance of meeting a few celebrities whilst you’re there.

Amsterdam

Amsterdam looks so pretty. I know so many people who have been and have had nothing but good things to say about it. There are so many museums I would love to visit there, and I would love to ride a bike along the canal.

New York

I’ve already been to New York, and although I absolutely loved it, it rained and snowed the whole time I was there. So I would love the chance to see New York in the Spring/Summer and to get a whole different feel of the place. I would love to be able to spend a day wandering around Central Park, maybe have a picnic too.

Venice

I absolutely love Italy, having been to Rome already, and Venice is one of the cities I really wanted to go to. Everything from the food, to the canals looks beautiful.

 

Where would you like to go most in the world?! Also have you been to any of the places on my list? Would you recommend it?
