How not to lose your cool?

How to not lose your cool? - Collage made by me.
Lately, few times a day I have been repeating the mantra from one of Gabrielle Bernstein's book: "I am willing to witness my fear". All my professional and life experience have shown so far is that being a walking and talking representative of a so-called a bit post-Millennial group is inseparably connected to the 24/7 state of fear: fear of not being good enough, lagging behind the news, trends, skills, social media phenomena, concern about the ever-changing job market and continuous search for what else I need to know to be continously relevant as a job candidate in demand, dread of not having a linear job path, panic concerning not being in a right place at a proper time, comfort and distress that I have freedom to live in so many countries in the world and I am stuck in one for too long and finally aversion to routine, stability and anything mundane.

To make it even more creepy, sometimes I get comforted hearing friends in mid-late thirties complaining about not knowing what they want to do professionally. It gives me a strange boost of hope to see that they are not sure whether it is success or survival that they fancy in their jobs. Some of them, like me, temporarily  put that their career dreams on hold and instead do something completely different giving them a temporary financial and mental ease.

I can only speak for myself, but I know there are so many others like me, sharing the above mention fear and hoping that one day it will finally get so much clearer. Will it? With the speed of the virtual world, and the constant demand for faster, better, wilder, more exposed, younger but already very experienced employees, how to find a middle ground?

I wish I knew the answer to that. However, the only thing I know is that in order not to lose my cool in situations in which I cannot predict the outcome; I try to focus on things that make my life unique, that inspire me, motivate me and make me feel alive. It takes time, but after a while, I forget about the failed job interview, fear that my passion would never turn into a career or the fact that I do not necessarily know where I am at this point of my life. Suddenly, I realize that those who are so damn sure about doing the right thing, are very often in denial. The remedy that always works for me is writing for this blog, creating wild collages and sharing my latest cultural and fashion finds with you!
