How I moved from Being Confused about What I Wanted to Do with my Life to Knowing What I Want.
Are you confused about what you really want to do with your life? Stick around, read my story and learn something.
When I finished high school, I was a teenager with big dreams and I wanted to explore all my talents, as I read in the bible that some people can have many talents, so I explored!!! In the end, I concluded that those hobbies are different from passion, and hobbies can be monetized while your passion is your gifting, IT MAKES YOU. I am quite versatile which made me put my energy into so many things. I enjoyed the experience and had fun with it, I enjoyed meeting new people who have become good friends.
I started out with writing, always with a book and pen journaling my thoughts, then I joined modelling because I was very skinny and everyone I met told me to give it a shot. Afterwards, modelling exposed me to movie auditions and screening, since acting comes easy for me being a member of the drama club in my high school I only had minor roles, my acting was short-lived as I needed to go further my education.
Did I forget? I joined a rock music band and took a music course, what was I thinking when I took the guitar and wanted to sing songs lol. As if that was not enough I went to a fashion school and learnt how to sew, I realized that I couldn’t withstand the stress of sewing one dress then I turned it into a fashion business while I sourced tailors.
After graduating from the university, I was ready to put my degree to use and It was time to get focused. My dad was already advising me to be focused.
I joined the media house, tried to find a spot but I wasn’t fitting in which led to me start this website and registered for an online magazine.
Today, I have found my spot in the midst of searching for purpose. I am daily enjoying my job, touching lives and seeing people heal. I got here by trying and trying many things.
If you are trying to figure out what you really want to do with your life and time here on earth? I would say keep searching, try your hands on so many interests, you will find your spot. Sometimes it comes with age.
In all of these, don’t be lazy or idle just do something worthwhile with your time.
I would love to read about you, how were you able to transit from your hobbies to your passion? Kindly share in the comment section.
I have a passion for writing and keen eyes for fashion. You can catch me burying my head in a great book or surfing the internet for new ideas. I am a student in the school of life, still learning, growing and becoming more. Follow me on Instagram and Twitter @Ada1stlady
