It wasn't a glamorous one. It didn't pay extremely well. But I liked it. I met a lot of really good people. People who cared and who were fun to talk to. I made life long friends.
I did a good job. I worked hard. at least I thought I did.
I wasn't happy anyway. I wasn't doing what I wanted to do.
So I have a chance now to do what I want.
which is what?
The majority of my closest frieds have dreams, some of them lifelong, some of them recently realized. One decided to become a lawyer, so she did and preceeded in kicking ass and killing it in law school so that she was hired before she knew if she had passed the bar. Another wanted to be an archelologist, so she is. And another, that wanted to see the world so she took a job in Africa for 2 years. and another is fulfilling her lifelong dream of being a rock star. for realz.
recently I saw one of those shared pictures on facebook with an inspiring quote. The one by John Lennon.
When I was 5 years old, my mom told me that happiness was the key to life.
When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I
wrote down “happy”. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment. I told
them they didn’t understand life.
This is how I have always wanted my life to be. Happy. Now I have a chance to do something so that I am doing what I love. I don't HAVE to work to to make it so ends meet.
So now I begin a new chapter. A new part of my life where I find out what it is I really want to be when I grow up!
Here we go!
