As I talk with high school and college students, I find many who are deeply concerned that they don’t know what they’re going to do for the rest of their lives.
If we expect to live into our eighties or beyond, “the rest of your life” is a scary proposition when you’re in your late teens or early twenties.
I’m not sure who started all this–parents, teachers, guidance counselors, industry–but it’s really unnecessary. The anxiety and the hand-wringing serve no one.
Focus on the things in front of you: show up for class, read your books, do your homework, build relationships. Be faithful.
Take some risks.
Be curious. Keep learning.
You don’t have to have it all figured out today.
