This Isn't Everything You Want

This Isn't Everything You Want

It’s not easy, and it never will be. But it’s not impossible.

July 21, 2022

I am not the person I thought I would be.

When I was a kid, I thought I was special.

My life would be different from the other kids, and I thought I’d live life to the fullest by the time I was 27.

But I was not.

I was 27 and I did not feel alive. Stuck in a day job that I don't like, just like everyone else.

I was the person I did not want to be.

And I thought to myself, “This is not what I wanted in life.”

So I compromised.

I sacrificed some things to focus on my dream.

It was hard to juggle my 9-5 job and my passion. But it was worth it.

It’s not easy, and it never will be. But it’s not impossible.

I am still not the person I wanted to be, to be honest.

But it's okay.

I am in a better place, at least.

Now, pack your bags and get out.

Seize the day.
