It’s Okay If You Don’t Know…

“But I have no idea what to do” said Matt…

All I could do was sit there.. wide-eyed. speechless. like a deer in headlights

Matt stared at me. Our eyes met. And you could see the hope within that I somehow held a magical answer to his question and problem

And all of a sudden. It just blurted out of my mouth

“fuck me Matt. neither do I”

But the funny thing is. There I was. 26yrs old – and Matt was about to turn 15… and he was angry at himself for not knowing what to do with the rest of his life…

It’s okay not knowing exactly what you need to do in any given situation… especially at that age

the main part is pressing the buzzer and jumping in – taking action

there will never be a perfect time. a perfect situation. or a perfect opportunity. too many people get so caught up in the “why” – the thinking portion – that they never get to the “how” stage of taking action

it’s okay to not know…
it’s human…
the positive is that you’re thinking

I cannot begin to fathom how we can force such pressure down our children’s throats when it comes to the likes of the HSC and going to uni.. all to be a cog in someone else’s wheel

the thought pattern this creates is inexplainable. there is so much more to life than this. it’s accumulating experiences and finding your passion

I’ve done the whole uni thing… and I learnt more through my own self-conducted learning than I did within the confines of that ‘educational’ institution

here I am. 26yrs old. and still no idea exactly what to do with my life. all I know is that until the day I pass on – I will be helping others and adding value to their life’s to help them change

until then. I’ll be a student of life. and do the things that interest me and allow me to add value

so. to all you “Matt’s” out there. it’s okay if you don’t know the answer

keep your eyes and ears open
do what you love
and in the end, the answer will find you
