I feel like I’m about to begin my rant with a ‘Dear Diary’
Nah… too cheesy.
Let me start off by setting the ambience.
It’s 8:50 pm on a wednesday night, the weather is hot as balls and I’m sitting in my living room with the lights out. I’m finally coming around the idea of starting this blog as a way to vent all my random thoughts and find my ‘true voice’.
This will get real deep real fast so brace yourselves.
I’ve been thinking too much about what do I want from this career path that I have chosen for myself, what’s the next step and where do I want to be in 5 years. This has been my daily struggle for a while now and I can’t seem to shake off the idea that I’m just running around in circles, stuck in a place where I don’t feel appreciated.
Don’t get me wrong. I love what I do. I’m a creative soul and I would choose this path a million times. This is what I want.
The thing is, I’m not working on my full potential. Not because I don’t want to… but because I don’t have space to grow. My works goes by unappreciated.
Whenever I complain about this, my mom always comes at me with the same phrase: “when I was your age (I’m 25) I was working two jobs, supporting my mom and my siblings, I bought my own car and still had time to go out with my friends”.
Ok! I keep bitching about how I’m so bored at my job and my mom basically slaps me in the face with real problems. Lesson learned.
So there you go. A piece of my mind. Thank you for sticking around until the very end. This is my wake up call to start creating happy, meaninful content.
This will be you blog for all things creative. Art. Music. Photography. Travel.
As told by me.
