Changing Plans

Since I began to study English Language and Literature at Brock University, it has been my goal to become an editor once I have graduated. I cannot say for certain what exactly prompted me to sustain an interest in editorial work, however I remained loyal to such interest for a majority of my university studies.

I was conversing with my mom yesterday about my plans post-graduation (I graduate this Spring), and although I am hoping to do my Masters in English, I am not entirely certain if my marks will be high enough to be accepted into the program. So, I recently came to the realization that I have to prepare for the worst-case scenario, and if I fail to be accepted into the Masters program here at Brock, I will have to begin looking for work.

My mom was asking me where I plan to apply for a job that involves editorial work, and I figured I should probably inform her that I had changed my mind and my plans about my future career interests. I explained to my mom that I was no longer interested in engaging in editorial work post-graduation, and instead explained to her that I am far more passionate about writing and therefore hope to find work that allows for the opportunity to write.

I am unsure of why I was hesitant to tell my mom I had changed my mind about my future career goals, but after I told her I recognized that there is absolutely nothing wrong with a change in mind or plans. Life is full of changes, and if a person chooses to go through life without adjusting their plans in order to benefit their happiness or quality of life, it is probable that such person will likely be miserable and will fail to be satisfied with their life choices.

I suppose what I am attempting to communicate is that a change in plans is not something to fear. It is something to embrace and welcome, and it is an opportunity for positive change to present itself.
