Tucked Away In My Little Bubble

via Daily Prompt: Incubate     

I may have mentioned once or twice that I in 82 days I will be sitting my state exams. Everyone places the emphasis on these exams that they will define my life. They say that my getting in to these colleges will define the prosperity or lack of in my future.

Although for some people it is easy to say that they are just exams, they are all I know. We are not given the option of what to do without college. When I volunteered the idea to my friends and family that I would defer for a year and travel I was met by a wall. It wasn’t an option. It forces me to wonder about all the other things. We are all incubated in this little bubble. A bubble that will pop. How do I prepare myself for when it does?

How do you know that this path; college, career, marriage, kids is the right one? Everyone does it and I know that just because everyone does it doesn’t mean it’s right but what’s the alternative? You can look at the 1960’s and say the alternative to that path was becoming a hippie. The complete rejection of societies values. What is our modern day hippies? How do you decide if you want to stay in your bubble?

  1. Great questions. I found that the day comes when we choose whether what everyone else does is enough for us, and how to do something else and still be seen as okay to those who matter to us. I don’t believe in luck, so I will just say, “Do your best.” If you do your best, no matter the outcome, you will have no regrets and can move forward to destiny.

  2. Actually, not everyone does follow that same path, and there’s no reason you should follow it if you’re compelled to do otherwise. I would advise, though, that you give serious, deep, long-term thought not just to which path you want to walk, but how to walk it, and how you will you recover when you inevitably stumble or even veer off the path altogether, as we all do from time to time.
