You may say I'm a dreamer.



Sometimes I just want to get away from reality. I want to be able to know, just know in my heart, what I really want to do with my life. 

I want a career that I can be excited about waking up and going to every morning. A career that allows me to have some creative freedom and ability to make people feel something significant. 

How do some people just know what they want to do? Some people just know that they're supposed to be doctors, musicians, business people, lawyers - or so they seem to know. At the moment I feel I'm wandering through life half-blind, feeling my way as to what I should be doing rather than what I would enjoy doing. 

I would love to work at a magazine, I think. Perhaps in the life & style section. Anyone? Mindfood? Home & Living? Vogue? I'd gladly be a travel, interior design, or health & well-being journalist. 

I really don't think sitting at a desk all day is my calling. I want to be busy, rushing around with lists to do, places to be, people to see. Maybe I need to put my feelers out more in regards to journalism and look my fear of failure in the face. I think I've been conned into doing what other people want me to do rather than pursuing what I really want to be doing and it's now put me in a place where I have no direction or hope for the future. That's a bad place to be.

What do you think? Do you think I'd have what it takes to become a journalist, or an assistant editor or even editor of a magazine? I feel I have a good eye for detail and the ability to articulate my thoughts.

  1. a travel writer, perhaps? always on the go? or maybe you could look into publishing and design? I don't think it's unnatural not to know what you want. you just have to try everything until you find something that rings true to yourself. if that makes sense :)

    1. Maybe - I think I'd enjoy that - I'm unsure whether I'm good at it, however! I'll look into publishing. Thanks! :)

  3. Someone said to me that the things you find yourself doing automatically are the things you should be thinking about making a career out of.
    Your travel writing is amazing, you could start there? Contact Megan from Blogger at Large and see if she would publish some guest pieces or if she has any suggestions for you.
    Good luck!

  4. I think my first comment disappeared!!!

    Anyhow, someone once told me that what I did when I was just cruising, what I did automatically when I should be working or what I did for fun, then that was a place I could start when thinking of a career. So I ended up managing a bar :)

    I think your travel writing is great. You could contact Megan from Blogger at Large and see if she accepts guest posts or if she has any suggestions for you.
    The real question is - what do YOU want to do?

    Good luck!
