Getting there: A woman in transit/ 02.05.11

I read something on @Sheiatkins twitter today that really made me think: “God puts you in a place you are supposed to be but you can miss out by focusing on trying to get to where you want to be”. Having graduated a year ago and trying to find myself within the cruel world of work, it is easy to get impatient and want to see results overnight. In my mind’s eye I can see clearly where I want to be within the next 10 years, the map however is still a work in progress. Why is it the journey is so tiresome? Why can’t life be easy and predictable? I used to think I like surprises but now I’m not so sure, at the same time I know I have a lot to learn where I’m at now.

A woman in transit. Watching and waiting. Walking.

About Plantain Periodicals

Hello! Welcome to the Plantain Periodicals blogs. The name stems from the kitchen moments I had with my friends at university cooking plantain and planning our lives together. I have used this space as a window into my mind and the way I make sense of all my experiences through writing.This is where I share those conversations and moments that happen inside my head as a young woman growing up in 21st century London. Hopefully you'll be entertained and also learn a thing or two. My main blog ad: www.nissiknows.wordpress.com My literature blog: www.plantainperiodicals.wordpress.com NMx
