I’ve had my mind made up all day about getting home and vlogging about recent experiences. I recently fell in love with filmmaking and that is my preferred method of documenting things in a creative way. Some choose blogging, I’m not much of the writer unless there’s the occasional spurt of inspiration.
As soon as I hit home, despite all the excitement I’ve had looking forward to sharing a new piece of work with other creatives out there, I just didn’t have any energy left to do that after a full week of corporate, 8-5, grinding. Ek is poot uit!
I realised a while ago that with every second passing, you are literally moving closer and closer to the end of your life on earth.
This reality made me ask some hard questions and made me sit down, and really think about where and what I want to invest my time in. If a lifespan is a measure of time then essentially what you invest your time in, you invest your life in. Simply put, you give a piece of your lifetime away and many of those with a dream, like me, may feel like the return is just not worth the investment.
This made me extremely frustrated with spending most of my time at a job, for a company, that was founded by someone who decided to invest his or her time (and therefore, his/her life), in building their dream and manifesting what’s inside of them…perhaps what they knew to be their calling or purpose on earth.
This is what I want to do and I know many others who does too.
You, dear reader, may just be one of those who are already spending their life making what is inside of them a reality or also wanting to do just that.
I was over the conventional reasoning and thinking in the ways that has for years been passed on as the gospel truth. You know…stable job & steady income as opposed to uncertainty and no guaranteed basic salary. With that being said, I do have to be, let’s call it “responsible” and consider the rent, car and other bills that are invoiced to me monthly.
I’ve done quite a bit of research and one thing’s for sure. There is no “one size its all” approach to tackling this.
Once I put it through the test, I’d like to share my take and decision in this.
If you’re in the same boat as me, what is your take on it? How did you or are you deciding to deal with this. Are you dealing with it at all?
