Dream Catcher | Living a life of passion

So, here we are – A couple days into the week (barely) and I’m already counting down till the weekend. I’m not sure about you, but there’s something seriously wrong with that sentence. I’m not trying to bash my workplace – but I honestly feel like corporate culture is sucking the life out of me. Nobody is on the same team, we’re all ‘in it to win it’ right? First one to get an office (with a window) wins! For everyone else, grab your cubicle. That’s so not me. My fear? Looking back at life with regret. I don’t want regret; I want passion. I’m tired of living for the weekend.

We all know, and love the quote ‘choose a job you love, and you’ll never have to work a day in your life’ right? A tad cliché, maybe -- but it’s true. I am not sure if a mid-twenties-life-crisis exists – But lately, it sure feels like it! I keep asking myself, ‘What am I supposed to be doing with my life?’ --- and deep down, I know. I want to start my own business. I want to create my happy place, where I’m longing for more hours in the day, not wishing them away.

I think I’m writing this as a reminder to myself, that I can, and will accomplish what I’m here to do. I want to add some flavor to this recipe of life, all by myself. I don’t want to rely on someone else to provide a paycheck. I don’t want to waste away my youth in a cubicle, I don’t.

The scariest part is jumping off that ledge. Taking that leap of faith, and trusting that everything will workout eventually. There’s always going to be something that’s holding you back: financials, non-supportive family/friends, but you just gotta move (you hear that, Arin?) Just go!

Disclosure: I am beyond grateful for my circumstances. I’m grateful for a company that provides opportunity, and flexibility.  I’m grateful for my paycheck and the life I’m able to live. I’m simply writing this blog as a reminder to myself – that I’m capable of more than a 9-5. I’m capable of my own empire. (And you are, too)

  1. I love this post! It's so true. I work for myself and have never been happier. In fact, I'm always creating new things, joining in on different projects. It's amazing. But I do wish there were more hours in the day! :) Good luck!!
