I admire the confidence in our younger selves to boldly declare a fantastical career path and follow through with it until one day it all sinks in and your vision for the future turns into uncertainty. What causes this shift in the way we imagine our future self? As we grow older, we have the opportunity to encounter new experiences and perspectives that shape how we navigate the world, which ultimately changes our values in life (even if it doesn’t seem clear to us in the moment) and how we see ourselves pursuing them through a career. Right now, I’d imagine many of us are in that uncertain state, whether that be in high school as someone thinking about college majors or in a late-stage career as someone having a mid-life crisis. We’re thinking about where the past has led us, a time where it seemed like we had everything put together, and how the future now looks so scary and out of our control in comparison with all these external expectations to have all the answers. But, it’s not. You’re the dreamer of your own life, and whatever you decide to do in the future will be absolutely fantastic.
