This topic has been on my mind for the longest time. I guess it took me a while to finally type my thoughts out about it. As I go through my daily grind I see people out and about going to work, school, or whatever activity they have planned for the day.
Since I am months away from graduating with a bachelor’s degree in my chosen career in communications I felt it was time to explore the concept of the perfect career path. Normally it is difficult to decide on a chosen profession. Most students take their time settling into a major while others like me already knew what we wanted to be in life.
The mantra that I live by is if it’s not fun why do it? It’s always best to try and get a job the falls within your interests because if it does, you will always want to go to work instead of making up excuses to skip work.
For some, they get lucky and stumble into their chosen career. However you end up choosing just make sure it is a choice that you can grow into. I know generally the careers we choose are out of necessity to provide for our family and that is fine just don’t lose track of that dream by making excuses to not pursue it. There are so many options to consider pursuing your dream job. An option is working on your dream job part-time.
As long as you stop making excuses to not follow your dreams, then the dream is achievable. In my case it has taken me many years in gaining many experiences in the field to get to this point in my life, the degree is just the icing on the longest time a cake has ever been baked LOL, or maybe we can look at it as fine wine because finally getting that degree and getting the opportunities that I’ve gotten is truly a career worth waiting for. I heard that God often has a plan for everyone and I guess his plan for me was a seed that needed time to grow so I can reap it when it blooms.
