Remember when you were young and the adults asked you what you wanted to be when you grow up? Well, don’t lash out on me, but till the age of 6, I wanted to be a bank robber. Yes you read it right, a bank robber. I wanted the adrenaline and the whole thrill that comes with the rush of robbing a bank.
At the age of 10, I realized that it was a great hustle planning for a robbery; I mean you have to find a trustworthy team and make sure no one screws you over and makes sure you end up behind bars. And with my shitty luck, I knew somehow I would end up in jail if I went down that road. So I grew another passion: WRITING.
I started seeing myself become this big world renowned best seller author or at least end up being such a great journalist that I would win a Pulitzer.
Well, 15 years later, I ended up in the communication industry. I don’t write as much as I used to, I still fantasize about a good old fashion bank robbery, but I haven’t lost hope yet. I can still win some kind of prize one day.
All this to say that life will take you on paths that you had never thought of. It will make you make choices that will drastically, or not, change your way of seeing things and incite you to do things differently.
I don’t regret not becoming a journalist; I still work with journalists on a regular basis in my job. So live your life the best way you possibly can and don’t worry, you will always somehow find yourself on the path that you set out yourself to follow. I mean here I am writing, right?
Till next time, you’re beautiful and awesome and everything is going to work out for you.
