The Good & The Bad

Happy December! I can’t believe I am already at the halfway mark of my gap year. It has been such an eye opening experience so far and I am excited to see what else I accomplish in these next 6 months. My main “Goal” during my gap year was finding what I was really interested in. I decided to dive into the realm of marketing, specifically within the world of fashion, and I have found it enjoyable but definitely not something I want to do for the rest of my life. I feel so fortunate to be given this experience and try out potential career paths while I am still young and still have so much time to decide what is best for me. What I consider to be going well is the realizations I have found out about myself and what I consider important/ essential in my day to day life. I think this time has been an experience to learn more about myself, and by putting myself in these  new uncomfortable situations I have learned how I react and what brings me comfort. Something that has been challenging is attempting to change my goals. I threw myself into a new situation which I enjoy doing but I certainly don’t love it as much as I thought I would. I think the hard part is finding ways to further grow in this environment that I don’t have much love for. I find myself wishing I was doing something else and not really knowing how I can emerge myself in this new something. Because of this I have decided to make changes in my personal life to reach smaller but beneficial goals. Such as sticking to a morning routine, working out, reading new books. Because, although I can’t shadow a pediatrician, I can babysit and spend more time with kids, practice a healthy routine myself, and fulfill my passion for helping people in the consumer world. From this point forward I plan to continue with my new habits and continue to find fulfillment and joy in the environment I am in. I plan on working less and spending more time enjoying my new home and putting effort into other interests.
