You know how we grew up writing long-term goals, making future plans, deciding career prospects and all. And then along the line,stuff happen,dreams change, there’s a sort of digresssion and new ideas come up,other opportunities surface. There’s an abruption in the linear progression. The plan isn’t just going as planned. You know what they say, when life gives you lemons,make lemonade. And then you’re stuck. So many things to do,do little time.
I think it’s safe to say that i’m @ this point of my life. I had plans buh suddenly, they don’t seem fascinating anymore. I’ve sorta diverged into something entirely different. [ a couple of years ago,if someone had said something, i’d probably had told them off ]. You know buh life happens. I don’t think we completely have the power to control our lives without any external support. There are other factors that contribute to who and what we’d become. God has the final say and if his plans for us don’t go in sync with our personal desires, we’re OOO[on our own]. Many a times, i’ve struggled between supressing my own desires for God’s perfect will and i tell you it hasn’t been easy; that aside.
Recently,i’ve found myself involved in things that i ordinarily woldn’t do. Career-wise i’m heading towards a totally different direction,not totally ditching my previous plans buh finding meaning in more exciting things.
Media has always been my desire. My dream was[is] to be the next Oprah;successful talkshow host [Radio & TV] & all. Then i got into school,for some reasons, i got involved in French[totally out of place!] got my diploma, and then went further to get my ongoing-degree[which i hope and pray i finish LOL] and International Studies. [SMH for myself]. Along the line, creative writing and poetry came up. I kinda like the idea of a future there. ”Successful author and poet” doesn’t sound so bad. Even if i don’t get to that level, it could just be a side hustle sorta thing. And then Makeup and Photography which i’m about to dive into just completely swept me off my feet. I’vn’t been this excited in a while. And then not forgetting my beloved Psychology! See many hustles. LOL.
I think i’m just basically evolving you know. The goal @ the end of the day is to be successful enough to be a blessing to others. That’s how i see it. There are also times when i feel the need to just sit in front of my laptop without moving an inch and make money @ the same time. All this hustling is not in my DNA. LOL. I’m yet to find my bearing because up to me i’d get involved in everything. I need to be able to decide the main from the side hustles. LOL
It is well.
