Let me ask you this… on your best day what did you do?
If you come up with an answer then that’s what your career path should be for the rest of your life. Of course you’ll have changes along the way, but ideally you want to be in a career that you love. When you wakeup everyday to go to a job that you love it won’t feel like work. Your passion is what drives you to do what you do.
After graduating with my B.S. in Applied Physiology and Sport Management and now pursuing my M.A. in Professional Communications and Digital Media I felt my life was at a standstill. I wanted to have a career while developing my skillset to market fitness content online, but it seemed like I could never land a job in my perspective field. Now, I’ve always had jobs, but never a career in digital media or public relations. When I started Fit 29 on July 23, 2015 I developed a passion for something again. This was a beam of hope in my life post-baccalaureate. Creating fitness content and training others is something that I enjoy doing; it’s fun and doesn’t feel like work. However, I still had to figure out what I could do to fill the gap of not being in the media industry. I work for myself while running Fit 29, but I wanted to also interject myself into a company because why settle for one source of income? For months while I was in graduate school I stressed about finding the right job in the media industry. I doubted my abilities whenever I was rejected from jobs time after time. Through this experience I learned so much about myself and simply how to just relax.
I say all of that to encourage any 20-something girl or guy who feels completely lost in life. You may envision your life a certain way, but I’m telling you just let it happen. Most importantly, just make sure that you’re taking the steps to ensure that your life is everything you could want and more. Of course, there’s going to be some bad days, but that’s just LIFE! You’re going to have to take risks, but it’ll all be worth it in the end.
Learn to be distress yourself from worry, fear, etc and just enjoy the moments you’re experiencing.
