“No that’s not right. Are you bored?” .. “Are you unhappy? Maybe your tired?” or the ever popular “You have changed. Your not the same person anymore.”
Does anyone get these reactions when you tell someone that it’s time for a change? ..I mean for me personally, hearing these words is like clawing on the chalkboard with your nails. Unbearable…!
Variety is the spice of life. Isn’t it?
I do not mean to condone or demean the people who like their routine. Structure is very important in life. But why not move ahead? Go beyond what you want; what people expect from you? For example, I have many days where I imagine life as a 007 agent or being an apprentice for Sherlock Holmes!
To be clear, this does not in any way mean I am unhappy; that I do not like my chosen career path or that I feel like I made a mistake. This is why this blog was started. To tap into a different creative side. To move on. I have a few ideas apart from this blog with how I can beat the monotony; if it comes up in the near future. Till then, I keep writing and continue my photography….because it is my hobby.
All of you reading may be studying or may have finished and have now entered the service industry. Is that it? Study and work. Why not try something new? Always learning; why not continue doing what you love and something that you crave? Sometimes it isn’t always about the work front as well. Get a makeover or a wardrobe change! You will immediately feel renewed…. (remember a little change can go a long way…… )
You are your own competition. Always remember that. Despite what anyone says you must always strive to be better than you were yesterday. So get up, try something new; learn something or pick up a hobby and go with the flow. You might surprise yourself and others.
And .lastly, follow your own heart and your own choices. At least that way, you will have no one to blame but yourself. Don’t you agree?
