“I don’t know where I’m going from here, but I promise it won’t be boring” – David Bowie.
I grew up on David Bowie, so his music has always had a special place in my heart. With his unique look and voice, he is truly unforgettable. I cried a little when I found out that he passed away. Bowie’s song “Changes” has been one of my personal favorites for as long as I can remember. This quote appeals to me because it’s just something that speaks to my heart. I really don’t know what I’m doing or where I’m going.
I just got my “big girl” job. I’m a full-time children’s librarian now. So far I absolutely love everything about it, despite the fact that I was initially planning on being a teen librarian. However, I know this isn’t my only place. I don’t know what will come next – career wise-, but I’m going to keep moving up. My future has just begun. I’ve put a lot of work and time into getting where I am (a Master’s Degree at the age of 23? I’m gonna be boastful and say, damn, that’s pretty awesome!). I have a lot of life left to live and a lot I want to do. I will not be complacent and do one thing for the rest of my life. I have places to go, things to see, and people to meet. This quote reminds me to keep moving forward and to keep pushing myself because I’ve seen so little of the world.
The ambiguity of the future can be really scary, but it certainly isn’t boring. I’m pretty Type A and like to have things planned out, so letting go and accepting that my future is a giant question mark is terrifying to me. I have a hard time of letting go and not being in control. But Bowie helps remind me that there’s nothing boring about that giant QUESTION MARK that is the future, and that helps me cling to hope.
