“You have brains in your head and feet in your shoes
You can steer yourself any direction you choose.
You’re on your own and you know what you know.
And you are the one who’ll decide where to go.” ~Dr. Seuss
This quote by Dr. Seuss is all about making choices in your life and just being you. So many people will tell you what to do in your life, your teachers, parents, friends and bosses. Most of them mean well, they are giving you advice that has applied to their life, but that doesn’t mean it is the right advice for you and certainly doesn’t mean that you should take it. Sometimes, when other people give you advice it is just down right annoying, and it takes everything you have in you not to tell them off!
Only you can decide what path to take, and the best part is that you are always right! Even if you make mistakes, you are constantly learning and making your own choices which will allow you to become better at making more choices in the future. Life should be filled with mistakes, the more mistakes the more you learn and the more experience you have to draw on in the future.
Sometimes it is hard to even know what to do at all. In these times it is best to take some time to consider it. Change your everyday life a little bit to get some context on your life and how to best move forward. It is always difficult to have a real idea of what you want out of life, especially at a young age, but in this case it is the best to trust your instincts and not to have any fear about failing. There really is no way to fail at life as long as you keep learning and trying, and you will be all the better off for it.
