L is for Lost

16 Apr

I’m pretty lost. I don’t know what to do with myself. I feel like a failure. I’m almost 24 years old and I still work as a cashier at a silly old department store. Like, seriously? I should at least be editing, if not writing, by now. What am I doing wrong? What should I be doing? How do I do it? Where do I go? I’m so lost.

    Some advice. Feel free to ignore but here are my thoughts. First, you are 23 years old. I didn’t believe it when I was 23…but 23 is still very young. You have time. Take a breath. And keep breathing. Second, if you want to write…write. It doesn’t have to be your day job. I want to be a writer…but I don’t get paid to write…yet. I have a day job and I write on my own time and for my own pleasure. And I do find value in that. Third, there’s nothing wrong with being a cashier. If you want to do something else, apply. Be the best cashier you can be…but apply for other things. Keep your eyes open. Put in applications. Send out your resume. Etc. Best of luck to you whatever you decide.

    I’ve totally been there! But don’t worry–it’ll happen. When you know what it is that you want to do, your THING, it seems like it will never come fast enough, but looking back, I’m glad I didn’t rush it, (um, not that I could actually rush it.) When it’s the right time, it’ll happen. Just keep writing til it does. Best wishes to you on your writing journey!
