THE JOURNEY TO DISCOVERING MY PERFECT CAREER
It took me a long time to accept the idea that an office job might not be for everyone. I grew up thinking that it was the ultimate goal to get behind a desk at some big corporation and type away about something I wasn't genuinely interested in. After I left my corporate office job to take time for my writing, I really discovered that I had no real desire to be in that world. My passion was in creating worlds through my writing and talking about things I enjoy, as I do now on my blog.
Of course, perfection is subjective and not attainable, so I'm not out here trying to find what would objectively be considered the ultimate job. I'm just trying to find what works for me, and after a few months of getting back into the retail job I used to have, I realized that being able to help people out on a daily basis, while also working on my writing at home seems to be a good fit. And, despite my new (somewhat) minimalistic approach to life, I do enjoy being around clothes and helping customers design a look for themselves. I am such a cluster of varying interests that it's hard to put myself in a bubble, but I'm slowly trying to figure out what give my life value.
While it may not be glamourous, I enjoy the days when I'm woking in retail and writing and that's all that should matter. For anyone else out there trying to find the "perfect" job, I'm here to tell you that it doesn't exist. And thinking that everything will be better once you get into an office job is not the right way to go about planning out your life. You should be doing what makes you happy and what gives you purpose when you wake up bleary eyed in the mornings.
What do you consider to be your dream job?
