You can fast foward the video if you want, and only watch the beginning and the end…
A friend from work sent me this. The really weird thing about him showing me the video is that I was having a really hard time with this thing I had to do at work. Oh, you want to know what I do? I’m basically a proofreader. And it’s really easy to doze off and miss a comma here and there.
I don’t know if you’ve heard the word millenial before, but I bet all the money in the world (which I clearly don’t have) that you haven’t.
It’s basically us…you and me, you who is there reading, and me, who is writing it.
Are you already thinking about the office where you’re going to work? Is it going to be a 9-to-5 desk work, where you sit in front of the computer all day? or perhaps you’re envisioning yourself at a courtroom, where you’re the prosecutor and you’re giving your arguments to the jury and the judge?…
- What if you’re envisioning yourself as a backup dancer for this huge new superstar?
- What if you see yourself taking photographs of the wildlife in the Antarctic, or in the Mongolian steppes?
- What if you see yourself inside a laboratory, looking at Petri dishes and getting close to finding what you were looking for?
It can be any of those things, or even others, like being a housewife, a government employee, a funky fashion designer, a pastor, the owner of the cutest B&B in Alkmaar, Netherlands; a mechanic, or a UN interpreter
What I mean with all this is that, it doesn’t really matter what you want to become, as long as you are doing what really makes you happy, and do it sooner than later.
Try to close your eyes, and try to bring a smile to your face by thinking of what you most love to do in the whole world. What do you want to achieve? What makes you happy and also brings food to your table?
Sidenote: I sometimes wish money didn’t exist, because we would be happy, doing what we loved, without caring about how much you need to treat yourself with going to the restaurant.
Anyways, you know what I’m trying to say with this. And, if you ask me? It took me a while to do what made me happy, and I had to skip a couple of muddy puddles and leave some barbed wires behind to actually do things for ME! things that I REALLY wanted to do. And Ugly Ducklings Inc is one of the adventures that is making me joyous RIGHT NOW.
I’m 28, and I just started, but you can begin way before I did. Just stop planning, and DO.
And watch this, too! d:
