Not knowing is the hardest part

"Someday I’ll be living in a big ole city."

Sometimes I find it hard to not know exactly what is going to happen in the future, next weekend, tomorrow, or even today. I have such high hopes for my future, and the fact that I don't know exactly what it will entail almost kills me. I know they say the beauty is in the journey, but I wish I could know now so I could enjoy the beauty, instead of worrying about other things along the way.

Do any of you ever feel this way?



  1. YES! Exactly like that. I would love a career change, but the unknowing is so scary, that I am almost too afraid to do it. I'm glad that someone else feels the same way.

    But, I don't think you need to worry. I think the universe has high hopes for you as well.


  2. yes. yes. yes.
    i am always moving for my husbands job & right now we are in WV.
    (rather be somewhere else.)
    i just want to know were "home" is going to be. i am tired of moving.

  3. i totally feel the same way. almost every single day actually. i love not knowing but at the same time, a part of me wants to go to a psychic (actually!) just to see what she has to say...i'm just so curious about where mikey & i will settle down and all that!!

    you're not alone ;)

  4. I think everyone feels that way from time to time. Not knowing is fun at times, but it can be frustrating too. I'm waiting for my bf to finish med school and then we will likely be moving, but we don't know where - depends on where he gets placed!

    I think the best way to get through it is to be confident that everything will work out alright in the end.

  5. the fact that i'm graduating college this week has me feeling this way x103984739874! it's absolutely terrifying, but at the same time i'm excited :) everything will work out! <3

  6. i completely feel the same and the thing is, i'm just finishing my first semester in college.

  7. You are definitely not alone and I definitely feel like this all the time. As someone who will most likely end up in the media world, New York City is like the trophy I crave.

    I feel like my life won't actually start being what it can be until I'm living there. Right now I'm in my last year in college, and I feel stifled. I don't want to get into any sort of relationship because 1) I live far away from campus with protective parents, and 2) I will be putting off New York for a year while I go to China and study. So either way, it's a no-go. And speaking of parents, it's hard to party when you're far and sheltered, and thus hard to befriend and flirt and well... it's all like an endless cycle that probably won't stop until I reach NYC.

    I just think, there, I can start my career. I can be independent. I can live life like I wish. I suppose it's bad to be so narrowly focused on that end goal and not care about what happens while I try to get there, but that's just what I've always wanted.
