To You Who Are Asking What To Do With Life

Maybe I do not know what exactly you are going through today.
Perhaps you are wondering if the path you are currently taking is the right way.
It might be unclear for you whenever you get out of bed each time you wake up.
You might be marvelling now if you have something in your life that needs to give up.

Your issue could be about being unemployed for quite some time.
You are weighing if what you’re doing every single day is acceptable and fine.
You’re possibly just came home after a long and fulfilled vacation,
That going back to reality brought your heart and soul to deep confusion.

You might be preparing on leaving your job and considering changing field.
You might be planning to study abroad and waiting for the result of applied scholarship.
You might be thinking if monkey business is right and perfect for you.
Or you just need a meaningful rest to gain peace and strength that’s true.

I highly suggest to breathe for a while and loosen yourself a bit.
Ignore the pressure of the outside world and give yourself some treat.
Take a hiatus on social media or any stressor that comes your way,
In order for you to have a clear mind and a quiet heart to face the day.

Gather inspiration from the people you adore and look up to.
It is for certain that you want to be successful in everything you do.
Keep in mind that they weren’t born knowing what they wanted to do in life as well.
So learn on how they reached their goals and follow the track they’ve left as trail.

Maybe you don’t know what you want to do because you haven’t tried what you’re meant to do yet.
The thought of not having any option other than what you are doing right now needs a change of mind set.
Taking a step outside your comfort zone may surprise you— realizing what’s the truth.
You’ll be glad by how much you end up liking something that you never imagined you would.

Being afraid to make mistakes will slow down your quest to figure out what to do with life.
We keep lacking and learning and growing which makes us more focused and hyped.
So be okay with failing and better prepare your mind, soul and heart.
You won’t ever be able to nail down what makes you happy if you rule everything out because it sounds hard.

Lastly is to focus on other less-pressing matters that are being served on your plate.
The obvious solution may actually just come to you when you’re least expecting it.
Just remember that you don’t have to have it all figured out in an instant.
So don’t worry about having all the keys— just thinking about it is a good start.

And listen to the answer.
Because when you feel like drowning in your life
Remember that your Lifeguard walks on the water.

  1. Minsan hindi ko rin alam kung anong gagawin ko sa buhay pero ang dami ko kasing gustong gawin e nagtrrabaho kasi ako haha! But I look at my family and I realize na yung mga gagawin ko should not be for myself lang pero para sa kanila rin. I wish maachieve ko yung mga bagay na gustong gusto kong mangyari in the future ❤️

    1. A reminder for us not to under-estimate the power of prayer. 😊 Likewise, bro. I’m learning a lot from you and I’m getting a lot of inspiration from you. 😊
