At what point do you take responsibility for you not living the life that you want to live? We all have dreams, but only a small percentage of us seem to actually follow through with those dreams. I’m a firm believer in the idea of work not feeling like work. There’s a quote that I once heard that goes a little something like this:
“If you do what you love, then you’ll never work again for the rest of your life.”
As I write this post, I’m sitting in a small cubicle with no walls. I look to my right, I see a co-worker typing away on her computer. The same goes for my left and to my rear. This is NOT what I pictured myself doing to make ends meat. That’s actually giving this place more credit than it deserves because my salary is barely enough to get me by every two weeks.
Yeah, I may spend unnecessary money for entertainment purposes, but that’s a part of my lifestyle. I like to enjoy life and my current situation isn’t paying me enough so that I can enjoy doing the things that give me a peace of mind.
On top of that, I’m a 27 year old man still living with his momma. However, I don’t feel too bad about that because after all–times have changed since the days my parents were growing up in their 20’s. Jobs are much harder to come by and a lot of my peers are still living at home to save.
So is it completely my fault that I’m not living the dream? My dream! As I just said, the job market is tough and I’d like to think that I do work hard. So what is the problem?
I wish I could leave you all with the answer to all your problems in this post, however I don’t have them. I’m young and I’m still learning and experiencing life just as you are. All I can say is to keep fighting for what you want and stay hungry. Nothing is going to come easy, but we all deserve to live the life that we want to live.
