I have no idea what I'm doing, and thats okay.

Mar
16

The older I get, the less I know what im doing.

At least that’s how it feels sometimes.

There may (will) be some people reading this that will understand this feeling completely, but remember you aren’t alone. We aren’t in school anymore where we must know what we are doing with our lives and how we are going to get there, with each step meticulously planned out.

Life doesn’t work that way and never will, there will be twists and turns and bumps in the road that you wont see coming; it will change what you want, and what you have.

But remember, that’s okay.
