I’m Ella, I’m 21 years old, and I am trying to master the art of taking life one day at a time.
Up until this point I have had a plan that I stuck to. But for what? I am about to get my degree – which is really just a piece of paper that for some reason determines what jobs we can get – and I have decided that I need to step away from that career path.
In August, I embark on the biggest adventure of my life and since booking my tickets my head has never been clearer.
I can’t live in the space of waiting to get on the plane, I have to live each day to the fullest because I would hate to look back in 20 years time and remember the 6 months that I just waited for time to pass.
I have some amazing people around me, and it is time to break out from the idea that you have to know exactly what you are doing at all times. Just because someone in your class got a job today does not mean you are falling behind – you are following your own path.
Everything in life happens for a reason. Shine your own light, make your own path.
