I’m a firm believer in the mentality that things will always work themselves out. Throughout life I feel like we get a hell of a lot of sh*t chucked at us and it’s definitely never an easy ride, but I think it’s important that we hop on, and ride it out because things will always work out in the end.
Example number 1 for you, cast back to my first year of university, I was struggling far more than I ever expected to despite only being a 40 minute train ride from home and being fortunate enough to see my amazing boyfriend every weekend. I’d spend a lot of time in my room homesick and wondering if I’d made the right decision. I’d beg Jamie not to leave every time Sunday evening rolled around. But I stuck with it, I got through it and would you believe me if I said I’m going to actually miss uni?
I rode it out, and found myself 2 years later the happiest I’ve ever been. I had the most amazing friendship group around me, I’d learnt about who I was, figured out how to survive independently and I’d started to really throw myself out of my comfort zone. I was truly happy, and things worked themselves out.
The next example is something that inspired this post. Just a few weeks ago I finished at university and moved back home for good. Despite being happy I’d finished, I felt extremely lost being back in my family home and the pressures of finding a job were high. My friends were scoring jobs, and most were staying in Norwich to live independently and I found myself stressed and panicked. I stumbled into a couple of weeks of really bad headspace, but I knew in the back of my mind I’d be fine, and things would work themselves out.
And here we are now, I’ve scored my first role in Digital Marketing, when this post goes live I’ll have done my first week of work already. I know this job is going to give me so much, both in terms of learning more about an industry I’m interested in, but I know it’s also going to give me so much more personally and mentally. It’s still not *the perfect* role, being part time and me having to make up a few hours in retail, but I know that it’s right for me now, it’s what I need and it’ll lead me to greater things in the long term. It’s that old saying again, things will always work themselves out.
So next time you’re finding yourself stressed out, anxious, worried or nervous trust that there is a plan for you and although it might not seem like it in that moment of time, things will work out.
