On fulfilling our dreams..
When I was in high school, even up until Year 12 I wanted to act, I guess you could say that was my dream. However doors weren't really opening in that area of my life and when I was accepted to university to study journalism I decided to pack my bags and start a new adventure. However a year into my degree I realised that journalism wasn't for me and fell back to square one. I had always tossed around the idea of studying law but too much negative self talk "I am not smart enough", "I won't be able to do all the work" had always stopped me from applying. After realising how unhappy I was doing something I thought I would be good at, I decided to take the risk and do something I wasn't sure I could do but knew that I would enjoy. And even though it was hard and at times I would cry on the phone to my mum wanting to quit I stuck with it because I loved it.
I look back now and see how different my life is too what I had planned when I was 18. And even though its not what I had planned, I am definitely not an actress, I am happy with the way things have worked out. I guess what I am saying is it is so important to have goals and dreams to keep us motivated and really living but it is also important to keep our eyes open to other opportunities that arise as you never know what else is out there for you too. And if you do accept another path don't beat yourself up there is so many dreams out there that finding your perfect match may just take a little while.
