This is a topic that I often discuss but each time something different is revealed.
Our desires are natural and the more I have learned to honor my desires, the more joy they have brought to my life. In the past I’ve talked about sexual desire and how it is not a crime to like what you like but today I want to talk about the desire to have the career that makes you happy.
I have fought time and time again, the idea of having to have a career in something that does not make you happy. In many ways, it is the way of existence in this country. Yesterday, I had a conversation with my piano teacher about why I spent the last few years working and learning with certain companies, Apple being one of them. And I plainly said, I worked and learned with Apple so I could have access to creating whenever I want. We were on the subject of grant writing and I have expressed in the past that I don’t want to have to write a grant every time I want to create.
Every dream starts with a desire and along that journey many lessons will be learned. Don’t let what you didn’t know determine the outcome or level of success you can achieve just keep moving forward. Because when it’s all said and done, you will have had the experience.
In order to love who you are, you cannot hate the experiences that shaped you.
