The Wellness Edition No.53 // Shape your own path
We can be thankful that we live in times where it is actually possible to choose a life and a way of living that we want to live. Looking back at former generations, they did not have the choices that we have today. Only a few generations ago women were still told whom to marry and when, also what kind of job to do and so on. The possibilities we have now were unthinkable at those times and I am super grateful to live at a time where I can decide for myself how to live my life and what kind of life to choose. But still there are so many people who just follow the route of life they were told to choose by family, teachers and so on. So, even though we have so many more possibilities now, it still takes a lot of courage to choose the path that is actually good for YOU, that serves you and is not the one others think you should follow.
I pretty much always knew that I wanted to work as an independent graphic / jewelry designer, photographer, illustrator and writer but of course when I was younger I also did not dare to follow my dreams and to follow what I understand as being my calling. I always followed my gut when it came to traveling, moving abroad but when it came to my work-life and profession I was just extremely anxious and insecure. I often with that I would have dared in my 20ies to start a blog, my own design studio and so on but anxiety and fear were over consuming and holding me back from doing what I always wanted to do.
So, if you know deep down in your heart which route you want to take, I’d highly suggest you follow it and make your dreams become reality because the only one who can make it happen is you.
I am currently redefining my goals, I will finish the B-School modules that I could not finish yet due to working so much and then within the next few weeks I start implementing everything from B-School. So, this blog and website gets a facelift, I also want to rebrand, I will write new service packages and my main focus will be put into making my design studio successful before 2019 ends. I am more determined than ever before and I can’t wait to take things to the next level.
