Don’t forget about yourself

I am sure there are many many of you guys out there who are or have currently felt the way I am feeling right now. I have spent my whole life so far in education, following the path laid out for me, not really ever thinking about deviating from it. Now I have 3 months left, 3 months before I graduate (still we hope), the parents are happy, the nans happy but then that leaves me. What do I actually want to do? I have been thinking about this ALOT, I can go down the what will be most practical to secure me a good future path, OR I can actually go and do something which may not necessarily make me a millionaire but will without doubt make me happy.

This is something that has only recently just hit me. Although turning 21 and feeling like a grandma, I am still so incredibly young and by gosh if i want to spend a year painting on the beach or dancing in America whilst having to work overtime in a bar to afford it – then I gunna. I have just had the sudden realization that although my life is great – it really is – I don’t feel as though I have been truly living (deep). I spend each day at uni listening to my music choreographing dances, and when it comes to writing my assignments i will spend the whole day painting and then cram an assignment into the last two hours. Being rich and successful is no longer my priority right now, I want to go and really enjoy what I do and enjoy my life – So if you see any of my art for sale or If i end up dancing as street performer in Covent Garden – Help a girl out.

Follow your dreams guys because life is too short, like me, HA HA HA

  1. This post really hits home. SO RELATABLE.
    When I started my own blog I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life. And what freaked me out more is that everyone seemed to have some kind of plan, some kind of direction they wanted to follow. I was so lost I couldn’t even see a road. I think the best thing I ever did in that moment is not to settle for something I knew I wouldn’t enjoy. Instead I took my time, researched different options and eventually found a path that combined all of my passions into one whole. I am currently in my first year of uni and a lot of my friends (who settled for something because they didn’t know what they wanted to do) are already dropping out, planning on studying something else or have just decided to find a job until they know what they want to do.

    Honestly girl, you do you. It’s your life – why waste precious time doing something you know doesn’t fulfill you? I’m glad you have decided to follow your own path and I am sure it will lead you somewhere! -Fiona
