A Call for People Who Know What They’re Doing

I’m in a period of transition in my life. That’s the nice way of saying that I have no fucking clue what is going on. All I know is that some of my friends have big dreams of becoming a CEO someday and I’m trying to decide whether a peanut butter and jelly sandwich is still an acceptable lunch option (conclusion – it is).

Which begs the question – no, not about the peanut butter – does anyone know what they’re doing? Or are we all just flailing around like a bunch of baby birds who fell out of the nest?

Are we all just flailing around like a bunch of baby birds who fell out of the nest?

I take that back. There must be people out there that know what they’re doing, right? I mean, what about all those “experts” on the Discovery Channel and those long-winded TED talks by  “thought leaders”. Surely they have all their ducks in a row.

So let’s ask them.

Hear ye, hear ye! People who know what they are doing – can you let us in on the secret? What do you guys do to find purpose, to feel like you’re on the right path? I’m literally anxious to know.

 I’d like to chop down the self-doubts that grow in my mind like weeds until they are nothing but fertilizer for flowers to flourish.

Do I need to take a magic pill to rid myself of my doubts?

Do I have to go see a witch in a creepy cabin in the woods?

Does the name of the pill happen to start with ‘Xan” and end with an “ax”?

Speaking of axes, where can I get one of those? I’d like to chop down the self-doubts that grow in my mind like weeds until they are nothing but fertilizer for flowers to flourish.

So please, people who appear so put together – talk to us. Teach us. Help us poor, lost souls find our way in this confusing world. The universe knows we need it.
