Wild-Spirit


this is my tumblr,
My main blog is on: wild-spirit.net!
A few days ago, I was faced with the question “Are you doing what you love?” on a wall at @localedition. It took me a while to answer, mostly on account of my confusion. I watched the post-its pile up as people answered “yes”, while a smaller number said “no”. I seemed to be the only one who fell in between. Am I doing what I love? Yes, I blog, I’ve been doing it for more than half my life now. Although it has taken me a while to accept that my blog and writing is something worth pursuing (I always felt it was a silly hobby), I’m here, and I’m writing for passion, and recently for profit. But there’s something missing, there’s so many things I love that I still haven’t pursued, and this is why I fell in between the yes’s and the no’s. I was at a constant struggle to find a day job that would feed me, literally, but not my passions, and I felt the pressure of what society and others expected of me to do. But it didn’t make me happy, it only made me feel like I was going to waste time not doing what I really want to do. I want to become a makeup artist, I want to travel, I want to become an illustrator and do graphic art. That day, I realized that ultimately when all is said and done, the only person I had to please was myself, and there was absolutely nothing wrong with pursuing the things you love and want to do. So, what am I doing to pursue doing what I love? For starters, Ive finally accepted the fact that it was okay to go after it my own way, even if it means going against what everyone else expects of you. Then I can finally say, with a confident Yes, I’m finally doing what I love. #PursueYes
