Confused direction

What do I mean about “confused direction”? Exactly what it reads…. lack understanding to where you’re going or what path to take. This happens to more adults today then you would think. Sure, High School or college graduates struggle with direction after graduation but as more people get laid off and loose there jobs (it is still happening), feelings of emptiness, confusion and helplessness set in.

Begin by asking yourself some basic questions and then go from there.

1. What do you love to do? Can you make a living at it? If so, is it enough to survive on AND save for those rainy days (there will be many)?

2. Is going back to school an option? If so, will it help further your career and gain you a comfortable living?

3. Network, network, network! Are you able to comfortably go out and meet people, introduce yourself, pitch your ideas, talk business and take risks? If not, learn! Your future depends on it.

4. Research! It is highly recommended that you research any interest you may have in business, jobs, ideas for a better understanding in the market and career you want to pursue. After researching, Do you have a plan B?

5. Get a plan B! Why? Because it may be what saves you from disaster.

6. Get a plan C! Why? Because you should never put all your eggs in one basket.

Life can be tough. You will have those moments of complete failure, but always remember it’s not over till it’s over. As long as your breathing, get up, focus, and move forward. It is possible to reinvent yourself. Age is only a number, not a disease.

Stick to the basics…. one step at a time, one day at a time. Be still to renew your spirit. Be kind to yourself with exercise, healthy food, positive thoughts, be generous to someone (anyone), get enough sleep and be grateful in all things (at least try). When you least expect it, there you’ll find a reason for the chaos. Finally, it will all make sense.

Live, love, honor and laugh out loud! Prioritize you.

About Cassandra Pavolic

As a retired performer for 25 years transitioning careers has been difficult. I truly enjoyed my career as an aerialist performer. I was fortunate enough to see the world, traveled many places and met people from all cultures. I learned a tremendous amount about life and people during my years traveling than I would in a school setting. The one thing I took away from being on the road is that no matter what ethnic background you are, we are all so similar. A smile is a smile in every language (happiness or contentment). Expressions of all emotions have the same meaning around the world. For this reason we are similar, and I somehow find that comforting. I'm now 50! It's hard to believe I'm fifty already! I reflect on my accomplishments as well as my failures up to date. Both are irrelevant to what I value most. I value people and relationships. I value my deity, it is the number one thing that keeps me stable. Being true to myself is a portion of my "food" in regards to my decision making. When I steer away from being my true self I am disappointed. Exercise, taking walks, and being still are another source of "food" in my life. I like to be still, listen and observe all things. I have been this type of person since a young child. Perhaps one of the reasons why I take an interest in Personality Psychology and my recent studies human behavior. I hold an Associates degree in Music/Theater/Dance from Dean College in MA. I quickly realized I wanted to perform, therefore my journey began immediately after graduating from Dean. I have been a Licensed Massage Therapist, as well as a Certified Personal Trainer. I am curious, I am persistent and I am passionate. I'm on a mission to be a better person, to help those who want to help themselves, and to share my thoughts, opinions, experiences to anyone who gives a damn. All in hoping that what I have to offer will change lives as you learn to keep your priorities in order. And so I started prioritize you.
