The ever changing woman.
Prepubescent Kara wanted to be married by 20, have kids by 25, and be a singer.
Early teenage Kara wanted to be in a rock band and travel the world.
High school Kara wanted to be a makeup artist and move to NYC.
Every goal or career or interest I have had was mostly revolved around others approval or other people’s influences on me. I mean don’t get me wrong I DID want these things at the time, but the driving force behind them was fame or money or what society told me I should want.
This honestly dissipated after I graduated from high school and I didn’t know what I wanted to do. I’m grateful to have a supportive family that is behind me 100% no matter what I chose in life, so during this transformation time they were no different. Choosing a major like MultiMedia is something I would feel self conscious about because;
1) it seemed like not a “real” major
2) i felt i want talented or good enough to be an art student
3) id always get people asking “what job can you get with that?”
And honestly i don’t know. All i know is currently i want to be happy, create things, and make enough money to live comfortably. Where I live, what my career will be, and how i end up there is nothing i need to stress about. The universe has all the answers and knows what’s best for me and that’s good enough for me :).
Ps. Don’t give up on your dreams or make them more “realistic” just make sure they are YOUR dreams and not influenced by others.
