You only get so much time, so make the most of it
Have you ever struggled to come to terms with finding what you truly love to do? Well I struggle with this more than I care to admit, growing up they tell you to follow your dreams and only do what you love. But that statement starts to slowly disappear as we get older and people start questioning if this thing you love can make you money? Pay your bills? The correct path to take?
God bless the people who are trying to help guide us down the path of success and encouraging us to do the norm of what our path should look like. Graduate high school, go to college, graduate college and then start an entry level job and work your way up. BUT I have done this EXACT path and you know what, I do not think it is going to help you follow what you love to do. I look at people who have been in the workforce for years and say they do this job because it is a job and they do not MIND IT....like what, I do not want to live my life doing something because I HAVE to.
Being 24, and starting my adult life and looking at people around me, the old and the young I question what I am doing on a daily basis. I look at the snowbirds at my pool when I'm headed to work thinking how lucky they are to not be working and escaping the cold. BUT then I think about it, they put in years of work to enjoy that and I am just starting my journey. I sit there and ponder and wonder if up until this moment did they work there whole life, saving money not living every moment to its fullest just so they could retire? If this is the case I do not want to partake in this because life is too short to sit there waiting your whole life for that one moment for whatever it may be.
Moral of the story I am trying to find what my passion in life is and run with it, regardless of what it is. Time is un-refundable so get out there invest all of your time and passion into what it is and make it into something. Reach out to those people who have had success and those who struggled, ask them what they did wrong? What did you they do right?
I refuse to let societal norms run my life, I want to do what makes me happy when I want to because my mission in life is to fulfill it with passion and success will come. So start planning or quit whatever dead end job you do not see a future in before you look back 50 years and think thank god I'm done working, but rather feel like you accomplished something you set your mind too.
