If a girl is unsure what to do with her life

By Sarah Kristine via UN Volunteers

When we are born, nobody can tell us why. We just find our self here and we have to work with what we have. I consider this to be a blessing. You have been given a life and there are opportunities around you to shape who you want to be. This is not as easy as it sounds though.

Life is a work in progress and each day we live we have to be doing the thing that we love. It is hard to do what you love if you are unsure what you want in life anyway. So if you are unsure what to do in your life, first think about your past. What is the most common activity you have been doing since you were young? Is it writing, drawing, researching, collecting stuff or travelling?

By reflecting on an activity you have been doing repeatedly in your life, you will understand the best path you must take when it comes to career, hobbies or purpose in life. Figure out what you are really passionate about and begin to develop this.

Do not be afraid to dream. Picture what you want your ideal life to look like and work towards it. It is okay to be a bit unclear about this but by setting a goal, you are setting a direction for your life. Write down your short term goals to achieve what you want in the long term. Short term goals can range from 3 months, 6 months to 1 year. These goals are meant to prepare you for the long term so make sure that they are relevant.

Dream big and remember that it is only dreams that come true.

I hope you find purpose in your life.

She says: I strike people as weird and short fuse in some way because of my angular face. The truth is behind this mollycoddled only child is a compassionate woman who's still figuring it out what does she really want in life.

I'm not as ladylike as Audrey Hepburn but lady enough to gain respect. I am a flawed human being who choose to accept that my imperfections are not a hindrance to turn my visions into reality.
