Without boring you with the long version, in a nutshell it took me till I was almost 31 to work out what I wanted to do for a career.
A year on and I am just getting to the place where I am okay with it taking that long.
I don’t know about you, but most days I am bombarded with strong females online who are, for the most part, younger than me and absoloutely bossing their life/career.
I think I am now at a stage where instead of feeling envious of the incredible careers these women have carved out at such a young age, I am proud of myself for managing to get on the right track.
It may have taken me over a decade of working in other roles, but what is a decade in the whole of your working life?
It is frigging amazing that all these women have got their shit sorted at such a young age, so why does that take anything away from me? Okay so it took me a while but I got there. I won’t focus on the years I’ve lost, but instead on the years I have to come.
This week I started a new role in finance (my chosen field) and I am so frigging excited at all stuff I have to learn. I probably have another 40 working years left ahead of me so what is 10 years?
Wouldn’t it be boring if we all had our shit together by 24? If you, like me are late to the game and maybe still don’t know what you wanna do, that’s okay!
I would love to hear from you, did you know what you wanted to from an early age? Do you have a career sorted? Are you still figuiring it all out?
