My mom said something to me the other day which really hit me hard..
"Your grasping at anything and everything you can to find out what you really want in life."
And I agree with her 100%. I want a career that involves fashion, photography, makeup, art and travel. Is there such thing as a job out there like that? Or have I already figured it out ages ago? Photography can involves all of the above, and I don't know why it's taken me so long to figure it out. The past few days I've just been feeling lost as to which path I should take next, and this one video really opened my eyes and made me realise what I SHOULD be doing. The entire video is so accurate.
Alan Watts - What if money were no option?
When we finally got down to something, which the individual says he really wants to do, I will say to him, you do that and forget the money, because, if you say that getting the money is the most important thing, you will spend your life completely wasting your time. You’ll be doing things you don’t like doing in order to go on living, that is to go on doing things you don’t like doing, which is stupid. Better to have a short life that is full of what you like doing than a long life spent in a miserable way.
What IF money were no option. I understand that we all have to work to pay the bills, but if I can comfortably live while doing what I love doing then I cant see any excuse as to why I'm not chasing those dreams and pursuing my true love, which is photography. So from today, I'm going to push my photography harder then I ever did in the past and try to get my business up and running so I can do it full time. And then eventually move to New York haha.
