I feel very passionately about this subject and could really talk about it for hours. I believe that life is too short to not do what makes you happy and I just wanted to write a little post to remind you all.
Wherever you are with your life it’s never too late to change your path. Don’t just settle for feeling alright and unfulfilled because if you are feeling this way it means that you are capable of so much more. You can only be the best version of yourself when you are doing something you are passionate about. I’m not saying that you should drop everything and travel the world because that might not quite be feasible. But what I do mean is don’t give up on a hobby, an interest or a passion because you never know what may come of it.
If you follow me on Instagram you will see in my bio I have written my favourite quote which I try to live by, it’s: ‘Take the risk or lose the chance’.
However scary a decision may be when it comes to your career or life choices you need to be a little bit selfish because it’s no one else’s life at the end of the day it’s yours.
Find the fireball of passion, enthusiasm and energy inside you and don’t keep it locked up when there are so many opportunities out there.
If we are talking about myself here. I left school after my AS levels because I just wasn’t feeling myself anymore. I wasn’t feeling motivated or excited about the day. I started a course at the Fashion Retail Academy because I knew I wanted to learn more about different areas of the fashion industry. I loved my job in Pandora at the time and was interested in head office roles etc. I can honestly say I have never looked back. I have been opened up to so many opportunities, inspiring people and the most exciting projects. I thrive on the buzz of studying in central London and engaging with people from all different areas and walks of life than my own. I have had to be able to deal with a lot of change at home over the past few years but I truly believe if you don’t change then you won’t grow.
So I guess all I’m trying to say is if you are feeling uninspired or unfulfilled, then change it. This is your life. Opportunities won’t just knock on your door you need to go and get them.
Over and out.
