•FEELING LOST IN YOUR 20’s•

This topic has been on my mind for quite some time now. It’s nice to see other bloggers opening up about it too, but also it made me realise that we are not alone with this feeling! This is something that has crept upon me since I finished University last September. Although it’s been hard to admit, I wanted to raise the issue online so that it would invite you as my readers to understand my thoughts but to also approach the subject yourself. Things will happen at this point in your life that will make you learn, realise and mature.

LIFE AFTER UNIVERSITY

So I’m 23 this year and honestly I am dreading it, I have realised how fast time is going by. Although I have graduated from University and hold a marketing degree I feel like I havent progressed as much as I would have like to. All my friends from University have bagged themselves a great job and I am still working for the same company that I worked for during my studies. Striving to find a ‘perfect’ marketing related career feels like a massive weight on my shoulders. There is constant pressure as people assume once you graduate you will find the job of your dreams. REALITY CHECK! Most of the time it doesn’t happen. It’s hard to know what branch of marketing you want to get involved in but the digital and social media world fascinates me, so that is the direction I would like to go in.

I have always adored beauty and everything related. I have wanted to pursue a career in make up artistry but I feel like my three years of hard work at University will go to waste. Do I also want to invest more time in learning? We should all learn to take chances more and follow our dreams, but right now for me they seem so far-fetched.

DREAMS AND ASPIRATIONS

I’m sure we all have those… Yep I do too. Social media and the world of blogging is my favourite subject to read around, I am constantly surprised by how fast paced this industry is. One day I would love to be able to say that I run a successful blog with a big following. This obviously won’t happen on its own so I am determined to start creating content that will attract you all on a deeper level. 

Another dream is to go traveling, nothing is stopping me from going! I don’t know why I’m not chasing the idea of seeing so many beautiful places in the world. I am very much a family girl and hate the thought of going away for too long so shorter trips would be ideal. It’s also hard to find someone who will commit to going on such a big adventure with you. I absolutely admire people who venture out on their own!

 THINGS TO REMEMBER

  1. THERE IS NO NEED TO RUSH: We all need to learn to take our time. Things will eventually fall into place.
  2. TAKE EVERY OPPORTUNITY: If you can grab each opportunity and try! At least you gave an attempt.
  3. DON’T FORGET TO TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF: It’s important to do what is right for you.
  4. ENJOY THE STRUGGLE: Nothing worth having comes easy. Celebrate your success once you have achieved your dreams.
  5. PUSH YOURSELF: Strive for more once you reach your targets. There is always room for improvement, but in your own time.

I’ve come to terms that it’s ok to not know your next steps, and it’s ok to feel lost. We often forget we have our whole lives ahead of us, just make sure that you don’t lose yourself along the way.

      1. Something will come up promise! I actually received feedback from one job that I applied for and turns out the girl was in my position before and knew what it felt like ! She said there’s always something round the corner and then everything fell into place since. I was applying for just under a year and only got 2 interviews out of 100’s of applications. It’s hard out there as there’s so much competition but you’ve got to keep on going 😀! What is it you would like to get into?

      3. HR sounds good ! May be worth contacting some companies directly to see if you can get any experience with them. Start small :)! Yeh most jobs ask for experience but where are young people supposed to get it from when we’re only just starting out 😖! And aww thank you! ✨🌸 let me know how you get on or if I can help in anyway xx
