“If you want to live a happy life, tie it to a goal, not to people or things.” – Albert Einstein
Lately it’s been hitting me really hard about my life and my goals for it. I can see so much possibility for the future and it feels like it is just within my reach. I was talking last night some good friends about my future and I felt so inspired to up my game.
One goal I have been planning and want to start putting into action is putting more effort into my blog. I feel passionate about this page and I want to start writing other posts besides my “Positively Optimistic” posts that I do everyday. I have ideas that I’m very excited to share with you all.
I feel like this blog has been one of the best decisions I have made in my life. I’m finally doing something that I feel like I’m good at, enjoying doing, and helping others in the process. You know I never really say to anyone that I’m a writer, because I don’t have that professional name. It’s like I need to be J.K. Rowling before I feel like I can give myself that title, but the truth is I am one. Now that I think of it I kind of feel like Superman except for the whole man part..although I don’t have a big chest…okay way off of topic haha. I am a waitress by morning and a writer by night.
I’ve been honest when I say I don’t really like my day time job at all (serving), but it helps me pay for the bills and then it gives me time to do the stuff that I actually want to do. So it’s almost as if I’m working two jobs. I’ll be honest sometimes I have a hard day at work and I don’t feel like coming home and writing, but I do it because I know it is what I want to do in life and will help me meet my future goals. I have decided that I’m going to start to put more effort into the blog even when I don’t feel like it, because I know if I work really hard it’s going to pay off.
When I talked to my one friend yesterday and he said he felt like I had a talent for it too. I really admired his opinion because he is a very talented individual and to hear him say that he thought I was talented too made me feel amazing! It made me feel like it wasn’t just me who thought I had a gift for writing.
It’s like when I’m writing I can express myself in a way I can’t in person. It’s funny unless I know you really well or you can magically bring out a louder version of me I’m actually quite an introvert in person. Yet when I write I could keep going on and on about things. This is a really weird fact, but during the ISTEP testing that we do in school I loved the writing section of the test. I loved it so much that I would write past the lines. I know..I was such a nerd.
I just always loved creating ever since I can remember. My creativity is a part of me as much as my eyes are attached to my body. It’s always been a part of me, and the part that I love most about myself. And the easiest way for me to express it most of the time is through my writing. I also love other forms of using my creativity too. As I want to go more into photography and video production.
Speaking of which leads me back to the main point of this blog post today and that is my goals. I’ve decided I’m going to look back into school and try to finish my degree. It is a new goal I have set for myself and I intend to keep it. I’m not sure where I’m planning to go to school yet, but I’m going to start looking into it seriously. There are other side projects I’m also working on, but I’m going to wait until I tell you all about them. I’m just very excited for the future and all the opportunities that are going to come my way.
I want to tell you all to go after your dreams no matter what. You got all you need to make your dreams come true. All you have to do is just go after them. Nothing is impossible. So many times people give up because they feel like it’s hopeless, but it’s not. Just set yourself little goals at a time and just watch those little things lead up to the big. I know all of you can do it!
Have a great day lovies!
Talk to you all tomorrow,
