Lately I have been thinking a lot about many things in my LIFE.
The one that has stayed with me has been my 1 year review at work.
Every time I think about it, I can’t help but think that our futures and visions
are manipulated by our boss or people around us.
Why would you let a person dictate what you are good at or not?
Or why would you let someone De-rail you from your path?
I realized that I have let so many people at some point in my life
do that to me. Starting from my mom, family and even co-workers.
I only blame myself for it, not them. You need to speak your words
and follow your path no matter what obstacles you may find. As I sat
in my store managers office and heard him give me my review feeling like a
death sentence and what I should do, I was fuming!
All I did, was listen and deep inside what I really wanted to say was:
” Who are you to tell me what I should follow or not, or weather I’m ready
for my next step or not”.
I only know if making that move would be a wise choice or not. And If I feel that
I’m not ready, then I need to be honest with myself and know that I can’t
I’m in a transition of thoughts about what’s about to happen in 3 month
after I turn 2 years in my job. No more letting anyone tell me that’s not
the right choice, or you can’t make a living as an Artist!
I have a passion for my Visual Merchandising, but along the way
something happened, I tapped into so many different things that
I love to do, I’m good at plus I’ve self taught myself. These new
discoveries are my new passions! These are the one’s I will be following once
my 2 years are over. I want to teach Art Therapy, I want to open my shop again,
I want to keep selling my photography, I want to keep doing my hand made cards,
I want to give back to others with my knowledge and I won’t let anyone this time
tell me what is right or wrong…
PS: Never give up on your DREAMS. No matter how huge, or how crazy they
may sound, it doesn’t matter just keep at it.
We all have a path that’s unique so follow it. It may come with winding roads
and rough terrain, but keep moving. You will find that smooth road
once you get their. And please, don’t let anyone tell you any different
cause only you know, what your SOUL needs… Laz
