It’s a real thing. Not just middle-aged people have a life crises, twenty-somethings do too. I wouldn’t exactly call what’s going on here a “crisis” per se, but it kind of feels that way.
I got married in April, I’ll be 24 in October, I graduated from college a year ago and was hired right afterwards into the retail industry… some might say I have my “life together”. I actually would agree with that, I do have my shit together. But for some reason I’ve been questioning a few of my life choices lately. Obviously not marrying the love of my life or graduating from college, those are decisions I’ll never regret. What I’m questioning is my decision to work in the retail industry.
Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy my job 97% of the time. I love the company I work for as well as what they stand for. I love the benefits and the salary I was given as a brand new college graduate. That 3% of dislike has a lot of components to it so I’ll just leave it to y’all’s imagination. Ha!
After encouragement from my husband and my family, I’ve initiated a few things that could lead to a huge career change for me. I’m searching for something that gets me out of bed in the morning. Something that I want to take home with me even though I may or may not (#WorkLifeBalance).
Honestly, you could probably say this is “soul-searching” instead of a “quarter life crisis”. Whatever it’s called, I’m in deep and I can’t wait to see what the next year has in store for me.
Words of encouragement? Advice? Do’s/Don’ts? Job field suggestions? Ha… Not kidding. Please, feel free to share!!
I worked with the talented Sunflower Creek photographer on a quick shoot for these shots! Thanks!
