When life gives you lemons, make lemonade! Or should we?
About two weeks ago, I published a post about 20 random facts about me. I mentioned that I recently quit my job and promised to talk about it in a different post. I probably will, in full, someday. But today I will share a little bit about that.
As most of you guys already know, I graduated in 2013 with a degree in Media & Society Studies. Initially the idea was to study Law but God had other plans for me. Looking back, this was probably the best impulsive decision I have ever made. I enjoyed my journey, learning so much about the media industry, interning at the Daily News, meeting interesting personalities and so on. After graduating, I worked so hard to get a job in media but God had other plans for me. 10 months later, I got I job as a Marketing Executive for a Legal Organization.
If you know me very well, then you probably know I am all about the hustle and pushing boundaries. So I took the job. Simply because I was tired of spending too much time at home and I needed the “money”. Little did I know that the experience is what I needed more in my life. There was a lot of traveling, which I enjoyed. I became so good in marketing, presentations and my job in general. This wasn’t my passion and eventually it caught up with me. Amongst many other reasons, I had to resign.
I have always followed the rules, I have always been the good child, my Father can attest to that. This time I had to break the rules and follow the dream. The other day I was talking to my blogger friend Tendy about quitting my job. We were talking about how fulfilling and satisfying it is to do something you love. It becomes less of a job, and more of a source of happiness.
I have started a business in fashion with both long-term and short term goals. The long term of it is to establish a fashion boutique, Glitz Dynasty, as a place that offers affordable and elegant fashionable clothing. I get out of the house at 6am and I come back not earlier than 7pm. My days have become so busy and my time so valuable. Even though we are halfway through the year,2016 is the year I have worked the hardest and it has been the happiest year of my life.
Our paths are different, our journeys can never be the same. But we all have a purpose in life. As a 25-year-old woman, i can testify that its not an easy path to define. To define the reason for our existence on this earth is the most difficult thing to do for anyone. But you can bet your bottom dollar, you will be at your happiest. Which is what this blog is all about. Happiness!
We are halfway through the year, let me know what has been your biggest achievement this year and what is that one thing that gives you so much joy?
Love & Light!
