now what?

I thought that I’d be happy about graduating… let me be quite frank…. I’m terrified. Here I am getting to the end of this road and I have not a clue what the next step is. Growing up, we were always told what to do and where to go. There was always a “Next Step” or a “New Level”. You start off in Kindergarten then you go to first grade. Then second, third, middle school, high school, and eventually college. Well what happens when you come to the end of your college days? Graduation is in less than a month and all I can think of is: “What Now?” From here… we are officially adults. We’re left to make our own decisions. There’s no road map, no direction, no recipe for life. We choose what that next step is. As far as I know… I’m not sure I am ready to take that step alone just yet. Where do I go? Have I become so used to being told what to do and where to go that I’m paralyzed and incapable of choosing?

The best thing about the future is that it only comes one day at a time. Don't worry, you'll figure it out. Congrats and good luck!
I hope you continue to write your blog. It has inspired me on multiple occasions to chase after my dream. Thank you so much!
