- Just now
When I was younger, people always asked me what I wanted to do with my life. I answered that the thing I didn't want to do, it didn't exist yet.
I've been building my inner house, developing new skills, enjoying my life. With always this desire to be able to look at it from the outside and see a path. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But, I couldn't. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I stayed true to myself, following my interests, meeting new people, and living for the moment. Just staying the course and balancing my hopes and work.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I was taking an accounting class last year and a guy asked me what I wanted to do with it. I told him I wanted to run a business. He asked what type of business. When I said it doesn't exist yet, he scoffed. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We have all had conversations like that. The fact is that we are all sold an idea of what to achieve in our lives. Usually a type of career, "what do you do?" defines us. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
These days, I can see the house I am building. No, I don't have all the designs done, but that's fine with me. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I learn as I go. Because if you wait until you have a plan, life ends up happening around you. You spend all your time plotting the best book, and after all these years and that work, you don't even mark up a page. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Love to all, especially those unhappy people who buy into this idea that we have to have a plan... and they are still unhappy. Because they believe in the lies we are sold: that when we have X or Y, we will be happy and enjoy our lives. Life is happening all around you. Enjoy it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You can enjoy it now.
You don't have to wait until you're done your school, you've got your career, you have the perfect body. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You can enjoy it even when you don't have a plan. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Enjoy your life, no matter if people understand your dreams or not. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
