AMBITION: The Future


The future - how am I meant to worry about that when I've already got enough to worry about now? How am I meant to build my future when I don't know what the future will bring? How am I meant to know what I will want to do when I’m not even sure what I want to do right now? I suppose all I can do is know how to approach the oncoming and unavoidable future. This is kind of like how I was before Lavi - I had no idea what my ambitions were for what I wanted to take away from the experience or achieve during the trip, because at that time I had no idea what the trip would be like! So, I just took it all in my stride, came back having had an amazing time, and I took away loads of life lessons from it. There’s a difference between having ambitions and being ambitious. Before Lavi, I was ambitious that I was going to have a great time and take part in loads of new experiences, but I didn’t know what my specific ambitions were. This is all we can really do in life when looking to the future. Be ambitious that we’ll do well, but focus on what are ambitions are now.
