This is a sentiment that has been running through my mind lately and its something I wish someone had told me when I was a lot younger. It doesn’t matter who you are or what you decided to become. In the end your goal should just to be happy.
Right now I find myself searching for happiness and coming up empty. I have a great solid group of friends, the house is finally, almost done. I have the job I’ve worked a year to get but still something is missing. Maybe it’s I feel I haven’t lived up the expectations people have had for me. I was supposed to be this successful artist but what I learned in university was becoming an artist didn’t make me happy. But now I’ve disappointed those who supported me, and I find myself stuck. I often wonder how different my life would have been if I hadn’t started working in retail, and if I had gone into Law/Politics like everyone expected of me. Thinking these things helps no one, and I wouldn’t be the same without the friends I have today. I just wish someone had told me when I was younger to take my decisions slower, not try to please anyone but myself.
