If you haven’t noticed or maybe you missed it. I had a lot of personal issues growing up and over the years. I have always felt different and looked at life differently. Being dyslexic is a big reason behind that. I have been searching my whole life for what my purpose is and what I’m called to do. I still don’t know yet, but I think I’m getting closer to my calling. The last few years or my 20’s, have been a bumpy ride. It’s defiantly been a roller coaster. I wouldn’t change anything and I believe everything happens for a reason. Instead of looking at life as a negative, why not say, life should be a vacation?
A dream of mine and one of my many goals in life now is to give back. I want to help kids that are confused and felt different and felt alone over the years. Honestly, I don’t have the answers to your life or the situations you might be going through. I’m trying to figure out the answers to my life and trying to figure out what’s next for me. All I’m trying to do is share what I have learned and try and have a positive impact on people. I’m trying my best, and learning as I’m given another day and taking it one day at a time.
Take A Chance
“You can fail at what you don’t want. So, you might as well take a chance on doing what you love.” – Jim Carrey, It’s so simple and again like many things, it get’s the point across and put’s things into perspective. Life is short and goes by way to fast, and there’s nothing we can do about it. Next thing you know people are getting married from your class, having kids. Now you’re close to being out of school for 10 years now.
Not trying to compare me to others. Deep down, some close friends or family might disagree but I’m a loner. I always have been and I always will be. I need my alone time and quiet time to think and reflect on things.
With everything I’m trying to say, and how special and fragile life is. It’s so easy to make life a lot harder than it must be. Why do we do that, maybe because we’re stupid haha kidding? Maybe a few other reasons tied in there as well. I don’t mean any disrespect and myself included in the mix with everyone.
Every day we are given a fresh start to the day. That is a special gift that I think we all take advantage off most days. It’s about time we start treating life the way we should, fun and exciting and not taking everything so personal and serious. Life should be fun and life is short, yes, I know I said it again. Why spend the time and waste it doing the things we don’t like and working at the jobs we don’t enjoy?
I get it, you have a family to provide for and mouths to feed. I get that and it’s respectable doing what you’re doing. It’s 2018 and the number of opportunities to make money and do what it is you want to do is endless. People are making a living and good money blogging, or on social media. Plus a lot of other jobs that maybe you wouldn’t consider normal jobs. I mean those jobs are fun and I’m sure those people are loving life right now and are very happy. They get to call that work, that should give you hope.
If your job isn’t out there currently, then create it? That should motivate you to keep going and try and turn that dream into a reality? I know it shouldn’t be about the money, but I get it, you need money to survive and so do I.
Take A Gamble
It’s ok to roll the dice and take a chance. There are people younger than me that are married or that have their dream jobs already or have kids. Yes, I want all of that and I might be a little jealous. Honestly, getting jealous of that, what good comes from it?
We are all on different paths and are all meant for different purposes in our life. Everything happens for a reason, it’s just not my time yet. I just need to keep trying my best every day and keep working.
My life hasn’t always been a vacation, this is something I’m still working on today. Maybe I should have titled this, life is a rollercoaster? I have had more than enough ups and downs in my life over the years. With those ups and downs, I never stopped working and trying something new. That work ethic and mindset have brought me to this point for a reason. I can’t slow down now and stop. I’m just starting to live for the first time. My vacation hasn’t even begun yet, my life is brand new and I’m only in the planning phase right now.
Life Is Special
The planning phase is always the hardest part. The fun part is what’s next for me, and I’m right there knocking on the door. Once I publish my book, and people start to hear my unique story. As much as that still scares me to death. I think a lot of good can come from that, and that will only be the beginning. That will be the start of my life and I will be living for the first time in my 27 years.
It’s not about living my life and doing what I want to do anymore. It’s now about sharing my story and doing what I need to do. Giving back to the world, and letting people know how special life is. We should be grateful for life every day we have. It’s about time we start treating life like a vacation, and not a punishment.
