DON'T GIVE UP ON YOUR DAYDREAM








For a little over a year, I’ve wrestled with thoughts of my future endeavors.  My mind is always working like a ping-pong table, back-and-forth with my thoughts inside my head.  Also, being apprehensive about pursuing what I want to do because it’s more of a “creative” job, rather than your typical 9-5 Dunder Mifflin office style type of job.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m extremely passionate with what I want to do career wise, I just have such difficulty with actually trying to chase after what I want, because I get discouraged with negative thoughts that reign in my mind from time to time. Even though I want to pursue an EXTREMELY INCREDIBLE CAREER in PR, I end up having weird second thoughts and think “maybe it’ll just be best if I go to school to become a dentist.” Which, if you know me is extremely WACK because I get nauseous from the sight of blood and truthfully I'm not that great at science, so that would just be torture!

This summer I took a big step and applied for an internship at a reputable PR firm. It’s crazy how well the stars were aligned and I got the internship! I have realized that my biggest downfall is that I tend to romanticize ideas of myself doing something and achieving something without actually putting in the effort to do so; this is what ultimately holds me back from growing. Who would ever think that too much dreaming can be a bad thing?

You will never know until you find the courage within yourself to try, seek and find a way to make things work. Doors will open up for you if things are meant to be. I sound like such a cheese ball, but I just thought it would be a great post to share with you all, as well as be an encouragement if any of you are facing a new season in life whether it may be the start of a semester, a new job, or any other opportunity.
