A Creative Girl Stuck in a Corporate World [a reblog]
When we were younger I am more than positive that most of us were asked “what do you want to be when you grow up?” I cannot speak for all of us but I felt like there were not many careers to choose from. It was like if you did not have some crazy athletic talent or you were not born a singer or an actor you either had to be a teacher, doctor, nurse or go enlist in the army. Personally the corporate world was presented as the Holy Grail or mecca for all careers. I always dreamed of being a corporate woman handling big business with the world at my hands. Now that I have made it into the corporate world I am constantly asking myself why am I here? I feel like my passion and purpose is buried underneath all of this fake shit that exists in this business. My passion isn’t making someone else rich and to be told what to do and how to do it. Now there are some people who belong here and that is perfectly fine but it is not your only way to success. What I would like to tell others, especially women, is that you can be whatever you want to be and you do not have to fit into this specified box that society wants to place you in.
Everyone is meant to be someone special but it is just all about finding your passion. Growing up I felt like other career avenues were not presented to me. It was not until a couple of years ago that I discovered that you can create your own career path even if it is not conventional. I do not know about you but I feel like America does not breed entrepreneurs. I feel that they do not teach us how to not only own a business but how to run a business. If you did not have a parent or someone close to teach you, you had to find out things on your own. I would like to let women know that it is okay to be yourself and express who you are and turn your passion into your career. Also keep in mind that just because something worked for someone else it doesn’t mean that it will work for you. I just hate to see women who feel like they are stuck and they have no way out. This message is for all women but if you are a single woman this is the perfect time to find out what you would like to spend the rest of your life doing. The single life isn’t always about sobbing over being single or partying your life away but it is a great time to focus on you, all aspects of what makes you who you are. We are living in a moment in time where we can be celebrated for being an individual and taking the unconventional way out. Find out what it is that you love to do and just fucking do it. You may fuck up and it is okay but life is full of chances and choices. If you have some type of fire inside of you do not put it out. Add fuel to your fire and let it spread. Fuck what society wants you to be, do what makes you happy. After you read this, take some time to write your thoughts down and figure out how to turn it into reality. I believe in you and so should you.
