So, I’m turning 37 this weekend, which would make some people give up on their dreams and just resign themselves to being stuck where they are for the rest of their life.
But it took me longer to figure out what I wanted to do with my life because I didn’t have a normal or good, or even adequate childhood. Without any kind of guidance or support ,I had to find my way alone. I had to try different things on in order to decide what dreams to keep and what to reject.
Plus, when I was in art college, there weren’t all these websites to sell your art directly to the public like there are now, so I was studying to be an artist and wasn’t sure how I would make money from my art.
Even though it has taken me longer to decide my goals and there are 20 year olds with professional art sites, and Etsy stores that have amazing businesses, I can’t compare my life to theirs.
Now that I know what I want, I think my 40’s will be as productive as some people’s 20’s, because once I make up my mind to do something, I can work constantly and function ,fueled by nothing but positive thoughts and 4 hours of sleep.
As they say in every Korean drama “FIGHTING!”
