The feeling of being 'stuck in a rut' and feeling like you're on a road to no-where is a well felt feeling of mine! And I can't imagine me being the only one. In reality very few people are in the position to be able to visage what they will be doing 10 years down the line... And yes, it is an extremely scary thought. What with thousands off to uni in hope they land their dream career and people with their 9-5 jobs in hope to accumulate enough money to do all the things in life that are a MUST. Such as getting a Range Rover in every colour and visiting the Maldives whenever we're feeling low! We can dream, right?
However seeing this quote on more occasion than one has given me a glimmer of hope! Who are we kidding? I can't even successfully load a dishwasher so the chance of having my life together is nil. Also being in two minds about life makes the whole situation 10x more confusing.
Stay in and save our money in order to be able to do all of the nice things in life?
Go out party all day and night? After all life is way too short!
I believe the main issue surrounding these negative thoughts are the media. DON'T get me wrong, I have OCD when it comes to the Daily Mail. Refreshing everytime I get a chance and oogling over celebrities and their perfect worlds. What with Kylie and Kendall being two of the most talked about teenagers on the planet, we don't have much hope in feeling positive about our bog standard, day-in-day-out lives.
Truth is... We needn't have bog standard, day-in-day-out lives. Go and do whatever makes you happy!... Making excuses for ourselves is too easy. (Easier said than done, I know!!) Following our dreams seem way out of reach but really, we're all just too lazy to pursue them! It just takes that extra bit of courage to reach them! We're too easily sucked in to others opinions, whether it be our parents, our friends, the media or a randomer you over hear talking in Topshop changing rooms!
Our time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - living with the results of other peoples thinking! Don't let others paths of life make you lose track of your own. Most importantly find the courage to follow your heart and intuition. Somehow them two things already know what you truly want to become... Everything else is secondary and irrelevant!!

Have fun following your dreams!
