Step out of the line and LIVE

If you don’t believe in yourself and your dreams then who will?

And if people don’t believe in you and your dreams, is that really a problem?

I grew up to believe that my dreams were too big or too silly and that I was just dreaming. And that dreams were just dreams.

“You want to have a career in Art? Haha yeah right!”

“You want to have a career in entertainment? Haha so you think that life is all fun and games, huh?”

“You want a career where you can use your creativity? What is “creativity”? One thing that I know for sure is that it won’t pay your bills!”

We are made to believe that life is supposed to be hard, sad and totally not fun at all and that we should all have jobs that we hate with people that we hate and come back home hating everyone because you had a very hateful day.— I can honestly see what I’m missing out on…

I’m not saying that everyone hates their jobs but let’s be honest, who here is doing what they REALLY want to do with their lives and are happy? Only a very few.

We are so willing to conform and not step out of the line because if we do then all eyes will be on us and “Oh! Look at this hooligan! He/She is trying to actually do things he/she wants to do in life! Who does he/she think he/she is? GET BACK IN LINE!”

If you’re like me and you have dreams and ambitions then please don’t be afraid to step out of the line and just live!

Life is to be enjoyed not to conform and be/do what everybody else is doing or what they tell you to do!

If there is something that brings you joy then do it! Who cares if it doesn’t pay the bills? Find something that pays the bills and do what makes you happy on the side! Afterwards if you have the opportunity to pay the bills by doing your passions then so be it but don’t be afraid to follow your passions even though they might not pay the bills! The most important thing is that you are happy right? Sure, we (sadly) all need money to survive. But if you’re only living for money then you’re not really living, are you?
