If there's one thing I want you to get out of this blog entry it's this:
Find something you love and do it! If you find something you love and can get paid doing it then go for it! More power to you.
One of my passions is photography. I love creating art through photos. Being able to see what others don't see and capturing that moment in my camera. The point is I love doing it and if I cold do it all the time I would. The problem is that it's not my main source of income. I have gotten paid a few times but not enough to break the bank. My goal is to one day do it full time and make six figures while doing it. How do I get there? Well for one thing I need to stop spending time on things that don't matter like social media. Don't get me wrong not all social media is bad but it's when I spend lots of my time looking at everyone else's life and comparing it to my life. Or in terms of photography I begin to compare my photos to others. You don't need to cut it out completely but cut back. The time you use to scroll through the feed can be better spent on something more productive and creative.
Anyways find what you love to do and do it. Don't worry about the criticism of others or the haters out in the world. There will always be someone that doesn't like what you do you just have to keep moving. Find your passion and do it!
As a reminder, don’t get so lost in your dream that you lose sight of your loved ones that have been with you since the beginning.
