It’s OK to Not Know what to do next.

You do not have to decide Right Now what you want to do with your whole life.

Are you almost out of high school? Have you been out for a while and still not figured out what you want to do with your life? You’re not sure what’s next, and you know you’re in for some changes- a temporary job, different school, even taking a year or two off from college or career to explore. Whatever you’re thinking about doing, each choice means a choice Not to do something else. So, it’s a good idea to get a big picture of the options you have before making any decisions.

What’s Exciting to You?

What inspires you to get involved?


What are you doing when you lose track of time?


When you’re talking with the most excitement, what are you talking about?


Be With People who support your personal choices. Who provide constructive criticism. NOT negative people who disrespect your choices.

 

Stay Healthy. Eat right. Get enough sleep. Bad habits can make you less alert, cloud your ability to engage fully in your life.

 

Explore Your Options. The best choices may come to you in stages. Trust that it will all make sense eventually. Live for a while with the questions and daydream about the future. It’s OK!
