Okay so I'm back, and I'm making the mistake of apologising and saying that I'll blog more often. I say that is a mistake because we all know that once we say that we Fail Epically at managing to actually do it!
Well since I'm here I'd better get on with it......Change.
It's happening continually isn't it? all the time, as sure as the world spins, we change, and so do our dreams and ambitions. Maybe it's the seasons. Spring is well and truly here and I'm getting that familiar, gut wrenching feeling that what I'm doing is wrong. I get this feeling every couple of months. I start on a project and then I think, "hmmm, is this really what I want to do?"
People say to me all the time, "what do you want to do?" or "What do you want to be?" and I think I have come to the conclusion that the 100% honest answer to these questions is "Everything". I want to travel the world, I want to see different places, experience different cultures. I want to sleep under the stars and try my hand at just about anything. I don't want to be stuck in a 9-5 job. I think it is that last bit that unsettles my mother so much. I think that is the reason we don't get on too well. She wants to see me as a success when I'm working 9-5 and 'stable' where-as I want to see myself as a success when I'm doing all of the for-mentioned things.
I thrive on variety, I live on it, I need it. I need it to keep going. Otherwise I get bored, and believe me that happens unbelievably quickly. That's why I can never really settle on one career path. Because at the end of the day, those plans and patterns all lead back to the 9-5. And that to me spells boredom. However that's only my opinion. For some that is exactly what they want and need.
For me, I like to peruse my passions and interests. I love Psychology, there is just so much information out there and people and the way they tick is just fascinating. At the same time I love art, in all it's various forms: Music, Photography, Literature, Jewellery, Paintings, even just the way that society runs is an art work within itself. I think this is the reason that I get bored. Or maybe I just haven't found the right 9-5?
Change is happening all the time. It is the job of the individual to be able to adapt to these changes. To keep our interests alive and keep the light in life by following dreams....Even if its camping in the garden.
