While some of us have known what we've wanted to be since the tender age of four, there's a greater number who had absolutely no clue as to what was to become of us. I'm partially apart of both groups. I've always loved writing but that didn't stop me from acquiring a degree in something totally different. You know what you like and enjoy doing but then you're faced with the hard reality of questioning if you can actually sustain a living doing it. That is when we usually become indecisive about our career choice. We're taught early on to go for what pays the big bucks by those who don't want the responsibility of taking care of us for the rest of our lives. So we then enroll in college with the hopes that the major we choose will pay off big enough for us to land a good paying job immediately upon graduating. But what happens when that plan doesn't work out so perfectly, and you end up working a job that you're unhappy with? With no room to hit the restart button, how do you get to a place where you're absolutely fulfilled and you're pleased versus your nonexistent guardian?
I've been in a place in my life in which I felt this way. I knew exactly what I wanted to do but didn't quite have a plan to make into something lucrative. Not having my desired job made my week appear more extensive and created any environment that I was in, a little dismal. It wasn't until I got tired of myself that I began to draw out of myself to create the life that I wanted for myself. I wanted to write so I wrote and that was that. There was no longer any excuse that would be good enough for me not to. While I worked the job to the best of my abilities that was paying my bills, I pursued my passion.
If you're currently finding yourself unfulfilled and feeling sort of blah about your present situation, remember something that you've done that has made you the absolute happiest. It doesn't matter whether you've made a penny off of it or not. At this point, you're looking for fulfillment. Do a little research on it and see if you can possibly make an income from it, just START somewhere.
You're here, so you might as well enjoy it!
