I so love this video narrated by Alan Watts. It took me sometime to get to this conclusion but now that I have arrived I'm happier than I have ever been.
I have long struggled in deciding which path to take in my life. I have travelled, spending 3 months living in Paris. I have gone to college, first taking Design and later studying for a Bachelor of Arts degree. I could never pinpoint a major because I was interested in so much and enjoyed learning but nothing seemed to lead towards a career. So I left University and went out on my own. I spent almost 9 months in a job I despised because it paid well and because I still hadn’t learned my lesson.
Now I’m technically unemployed but it doesn’t feel that way. I’m working towards being fully self-employed. My blog is my job, which means that I post regularly and have to constantly come up with new content. I do this because I love to create and blogging lets me be creative. I’m always trying to get me name out somehow because it can be hard to stand out in a sea of blogs. I also have plans to expand my business outside of my blog through photography and selling the vintage wares you see on this blog.
I have always felt different. I have never felt like I fit in and blogging has shown me that I am not alone. There are others out there who do not strive to work a 9 to 5 job for the rest of their lives. And what is most uplifting is seeing other women out in the world succeed in their creative endeavors.
Thank you for letting me share this with you and thank you for reading. I look forward to sharing more of my creativity with you.
