Hello Free Spirits,
Times aren’t necessarily good as of now. I have been having a difficult time figuring out exactly what I want to pursue as my career. Ever since I got laid off I have been leading tours every weekend and as much as I love it, its difficult to advance into higher positions and move up the career ladder. So I’m looking for other opportunities to fill in that Monday- Friday. But do I really want a monday- friday or should I start my own business? I literally have no idea what I’m doing and its a little scary at times.
I have some friends who have their own place, have good paying jobs and seem to have their shit together and I feel as though I am just travelling and flying around like a bird. I guess thats what it means to be free? During this float phase, I learned that there are many talented people in the same place as me. It’s difficult out there in the job market. Many of the guides that I work with are in the same situation( that transition phase of floating around) and not having established the direction of our careers.
Despite the weird phase I’m currently in, I’m staying positive through it all. Im using this time to work on my creative projects, develop some skills and get into some nice new hobbies(kayaking or meditation any one?) I know one day I will figure it out and it will all be okay, but for now I will accept that its a little crazy.
Thank you for reading this emotional and heartfelt post. It really means a lot and I just wanted to vent and hopefully these words of confusion, comfort or support those who are stuck in the same rut.
Remember love is all around you.
