Amazed and Confused... seems to be a way of life for most of us. We feel amazed at the countless opportunities that surround us, yet confused by which path to take, or what to do next.
Hi, our names are Kyra and Sara and we are the co-founders of Amazed & Confused.
Both of us are hyper-planning individuals. We. Plan. EVERYTHING. Really, you should check out our calendars. We grew up together, did every extracurricular together, went to Western University together, roomed together, and started Amazed & Confused together! We love to plan, organize, hustle and have fun!
We always end up in a life chat at some point every time we hang out. We talk about our next steps, what’s going on in life and where we think we’re going with it. Now that we’re out of university (for over 2 years now) our paths are not being planned for us. First, it was elementary school, high school, university - now what? We know we will have a job but what job? Kyra studied psychology and Sara studied business. Do we know exactly what we want? - NOPE. Sometimes we wish we were those people who were like YASSS I’m going to be a Lawyer, Doctor, Accountant, Physiotherapist, Psychologist, etc. We are just not those people and we know there are so many of you out there just like us.
We love working with people and being a part of a team. Our entire lives have been filled with team sports and activities, and never just one. At one point Kyra was a part of a dragon boat team, a swimming teacher, a competitive dancer and cheerleader, all while going to school all day everyday. Sara was the exact same and even now, she has 3 side hustles on the go on top of a full time job! So naturally, we don’t feel fulfilled unless our schedules are filled to the brim.
Of course, all of this can cause some stress from time to time and as we have gotten older we are learning how to take time for self-care.
There are so many things out there to do, but we can’t do it ALL - so what path do we chose?! This lead us to create Amazed & Confused (A&C). A&C is here to create a community of people who feel the same way as we do - amazed at all of the opportunities in front of us, yet confused by which path to take.
A&C wants to bring individuals finding their way together, with a platform to share their stories. This is the first of many blogs about sharing our journey. We also have quarterly tribe meetings and will be hosting some exciting events, paired with other surprises.
