Create Your Dream Career
Do you remember when you were a kid in school, and people would ask what you want to be when you grow up? Not knowing anything different, we’d say things like “doctor,” “astronaut,” or “teacher.” Sometimes people fit right into those careers, but what about people who don’t fit into a category very easily? Like me, for example. I’m a writer, a designer, a magazine creator, and a homemaker (to name a few). Trying to find one job to encompass all of that is tricky. I tried each of those jobs individually, and as much as I love all of them, it felt like something was missing when I was only doing one at a time. That’s when I decided I needed to find a career where I could do a little bit of all of them. Sometimes you have to create your dream career.
Not Always Ready-Made
Creating your dream career is not easy. It’s a lot of work and takes time, but if you can’t find something ready-made that suits you, sometimes you have to create it yourself. One of the reasons I formed my own company, Creating Home, is for that very reason. I wanted to find a place where I could take my two passions–interior design and homemaking–and create a career out of them. I’ve been able to incorporate other things I like as well–writing, magazine creation, and designing new products. Whatever you’re interested in, you can find a way to make it work if you’re passionate about it.
Begin It Now
I love the quote by William Hutchingson that describes what happens once you decide on something. “Concerning all acts of initiative and creation, there is one elementary truth the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then God moves too…whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now!”
I’d love to hear about your dream career and what you’re doing to make it happen. You can learn more about my story here, and if you’re interested in some of my products and services, you can find them here.
