How do you live your life?
Follow X to Y get to Z. That's how I imagined living mine - according to a plan. About a year ago, I felt extremely unsatisfied, constantly upset and unsure about the plan I had set in front of me. I woke up one day, literally and metaphorically, feeling as if I had done this all before. Like I had gone through life not exploring opportunities in doing things that made me truly happy. Only following a safe plan and waking up like I had gotten a second chance to do it all over.
So I said to myself (& to my parent's dismay), "Fuck it - I'm going to try something new. I'm just starting my 20s, I'm still capable of carving out my career. I studied biochemistry, but I'll make something work." So I left my MCAT books, I walked away from my research position (okay, I stuck with that for a few more months), but I finally started my blog, I'm constantly surrounded by amazing people doing amazing things, I picked a new career path, I'm traveling to places on my bucket list, I run from shoot to shoot every weekend. People always ask me what exactly am I doing with my life right now and quite frankly I couldn't even begin to explain it to them, but I'm essentially grinding 24/7 on projects I absolutely love and I couldn't be happier.
I'm not sure how you live your life, but I can guarantee, if you believe that the life you got now is a second chance to do it all over, you will wake up every day being exactly who you were meant to be.
