It’s funny as a kid you truly believe all your dreams can come true, then there’s somewhere in adulthood that your dreams get shattered into childhood fantasies by reality. I’ve slowly come to realize that we allow this to happen rather then it “happening to us.” It’s a mentality that I have fallen into for a lot of years.
I still found myself at 28 trying to figure out what is it that I really want to do, and it turns out it has been with me the whole time. I love to design, I love being creative, I love transforming something old into something new. I guess I just never thought I could make a job out of it much less a career.
I always did what was expected of me, so like many people I went to college, got a job….multiple jobs at that. Then I still found myself trying to figure it out so I went back to college for a Master’s and after all that I still found myself trying to convince myself what I would like to do for the rest of my life.
Don’t get me wrong I have had the opportunity to work and help some amazing kids and hope to keep impacting youth lives. What never occurred to me is that I don’t have to limit myself to one thing in life. I can do multiple things and pursue adventures that at one point may have scared me. Interior design has become that new adventure and I’ve been blessed with some new opportunities that once are set in stone I can share with all of you. The last thing I want to share with you all is that you don’t ALWAYS have to set expectations, because when you have removed that weight, the pleasant surprise is there is no room for disappoint and any opportunity presented to you becomes a positive and exciting one. Have a great day friends!
