Which Way Do I Go???

Do you ever have the feeling that you made somewhat of a wrong turn somewhere in life?  Like...did you choose the "easy" way out and now you're rethinking your decision?  Do you know where you're going?  Do you know exactly what you want to do?  Do you know how to get there?  I find myself asking these questions a lot lately.  Although I love what I do for my's my "hobby" that really excites me.  But because it's only a hobby right now and is not making me any money I'm somewhat at a loss of how to move forward with it.  I have this passion for beauty and fashion and everything that goes along with it.  But what road do I take to get what I want?  How do I decide what is best for me?  How do I decide if it's makeup and beauty that I want to pursue...or if it's fashion?  Can I do both???  I would love your feedback :)

  1. Hey! You's a really hard thing to take an uncertain road. When I was in the pre-med program a few years ago, I thought I was making a really "practical" career decision. But, as you know, I was not happy. I found myself unfulfilled and not fitting in with all of the other students. That's when I made the choice to give my music "a legit chance". I feel passionate about singing, it's what I studied, where I feel comfortable and feel at home. I am not a millionaire by any stretch of the imagination, but I do well enough to call myself a professional. It's hard sometimes when my next paycheck is uncertain, but when I'm on stage, get to express myself and hear that applause (and then someone hands me a check after!), I feel like I'm worth about a billion dollars.

    Spend a lot of time searching the web, ask yourself some hard questions. Entrepreneurship is SO SCARY and yet so rewarding. Remember, you only have one life. Why not spend it doing something you love?

    Good luck, cuz! Behind you all the way! Love you!

    1. YES!!! This is exactly where I am right now. I'm not 100% happy with my job. And the idea of not knowing when the next paycheck is coming is what is super scary to me. What if something happens to one of the kids...or something like that. But on the other hand...when folks appreciate my "art" that feeling is absolutely wonderful! I know it will be at least a year or two before I take this huge leap (as I know I need to take some classes and get certified to be a freelance makeup artist) but like you said...we only have one life to live and I can't be stuck doing something that I don't truely love for the rest of my working life lol. Thank you for the pep talk you lots!!!
