A struggle - which path?

Day 20 - Monday: Get real. Share something you're struggling with right now.

I am still studying my degree. A Bachelor of Business majoring in Economics. I am set to finish at the end of the year if all goes well and I am excited and scared. Excited because…who doesn’t love finishing their degree? And scared because I have no idea what I want to do. Actually, that is a small lie. I have some idea of what I want to do, but I am not sure how to get in to that industry. What I do know, is that the path I am currently in at work is not really what I want to do. I have made some decisions lately that involve further study and I am excited about those decisions. For once, I am excited about study. Something I have never been while doing this current degree.

The industry I want to move in to is not the same as the path I am currently in. I can work in that industry within my workplace, but probably not without further study. I am researching and talking to people in the industry to see if that is really the path I want to take, because I am so scared of taking the leap and hating it. But I can’t stay in this job forever. It is not me. It is stressful and I don’t love it. I don’t want to live my life in a job I don’t love. I don’t resent it yet, but I don’t want to get to that point.

Hopefully 2013 brings some answers and a clearer road for me.


  1. I know what you mean girl. Currently I'm struggling with finding my path in life and not staying on the path set out for me.

  2. It's always hard to sort out exactly what you want and how to get there. Just know that you're not the only one. Hope 2013 brings some answers to you.
