It’s 12:39pm, I’m sitting in my cubicle eating my 3 for $5 canned soup because I spent wayyy too much money at target yesterday on my lunch break, (Target gets me every time!). Recently, I’ve had this burning fire inside of me to branch out, to be more creative, to be more vulnerable and put myself out there. People who know me, know that I am very reserved and am very private, so naturally doing anything public is challenging for me.
Since I was young I have dreamt of being successful, being some kind of doctor, having a big house, being married and living what I call the “Barbie life”. Reality is, things just didn’t go as planned. After high school I went to community college and tried very hard to stick with it but I soon realized that it JUST wasn’t for me, and guess what?.. it’s okay! I found my path and my way just fine without that little piece of paper saying that I went to some college to study business management or whatever.
Growing up I always compared myself to others (still do, but try not to), I see other people who are doing great things and I wonder why can’t I? Why can’t I do that, why can’t my life be like that? What do they have available to them that I don’t?.. Comparing yourself to others is just horrible for your psyche. Just remember, that you are not like anyone in this world, your life is not like anyone else’s and never will be. You are responsible for yourself, your path and what YOU choose to make of it.
Today I have decided to start my blog, I’ve had this account sitting for two years and I never touched it because of the fear that people would be like “who does she think she is?”. Truthfully I don’t care who you think I am. This is something that I am choosing to do because it will make me happy, it will let me express myself and it will allow me to tell my story my way. So if there is something that you want to do, whatever it is, do it. Don’t wait for luck, don’t compare yourself to others, just do YOU. Create your own opportunities. Tomorrow isn’t promised, so take life and enjoy every single second of it. Until next time friends.
