Potential mediocrity meets the wandering mind: One-way stop

Have you ever felt like you are sitting in a place of complacency? Have you felt like changing your trajectory, but the steps to walk that way are unclear?

Maya Angelou said, “nothing will work unless you do.” So here you are trying to figure out what you want to accomplish next and looking for your next challenge to grow while climbing to leave a place where you feel mediocre. Maybe most of your connections are in one area and you are trying to figure out how to build a wider network.

What might get you the most is that you feel that you do not have anyone to talk to about where you would like to go next. Knowing that your journey is your own you still juggle the concept of time in your mind. Am I where I am supposed to be?

You want more for yourself and realize you have internalized messages that told you, who you are and how far you will go. Doubt at this point may have set in. Although doubt may have set in you use your mental power to combat those messages while letting yourself know that you can. Because you cannot spell “can’t” without “can” am I right? maybe not enough cans in one sentence.

As you continue your journey you come to a stop sign down a one-way road. Forward is where you want to be and behind you is where you are at. Thus, you are met with the inevitable notion of experience. Do you have enough? Do you have more than enough? You are expected to have this and if you do not you must teach yourself or be taught. You might ask, “why am I not able to jump right in? Sorry, it does not work that way and people have become too lazy with more trust in technology. Yes, we want people to have experience with something such as being a surgeon or do you want to hop on the hospital bed with someone wanting to “try it out”? My immediate guess is your answer is, no.

Whoever you are or wherever you are you get what you put out in the universe. Maybe it is not asking if you are where you are supposed to be, but making a statement that you are going where you need and or want to be. Maybe instead of complacency you are transitioning and want to be set when you may just be getting started. However, do not settle for mediocrity. Do not settle for the person society wants you to be either. Find yourself and find purpose through reflection. On your way do not forget to be present and enjoy where you are!

Be the one who turns the one-way into a four-way (all-way) and does not turn back
