“Although no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.” ― Carl Bard
After graduation, I was already working some place, it felt good to be able to start working full-Time somewhere. It was exciting that I had some place to go, and I did excellent work there. I was working there for about two and just shy of 2 months I believe. The business was struggling, but I was able to keep myself a vital part of their business. I wasn’t just an editor but I was able to bring in their social media, I also created and worked on some web site designs. And because I owned my own camera I’d go on shoots for them.
At the end of the two years, not even all my skills, they were no longer able to keep me on as an employee. I took it very, very hard, I never really been let go from a job before in that same nature before. It was there where I knew that I had to make a choice, leave my fate in someone else’s hand or make something of my own and be in charge of my own destiny. Some people are perfectly fine letting someone control their lives, they wake up, they go to work, they have one task they must do or a few different tasks, they come home, they vent about how their day went. They sleep and the cycle starts all over for them.
I don’t want to ever live my life that way ever again, so, I took this ending as my new beginning that I would really start focusing on building something for myself so I wouldn’t have to rely on another person again, if I fail, I fail because of me and not the decisions of others were not in the best interest of it’s employees. I began taking stock of my talents, I’m an avid writer, I enjoy painting, very Tech and Social Media savvy, I have an amazing eye in terms of Photography and I enjoy the art of weaving a powerful story and using music for emotional set up.
All my skills could be transferable into different avenues but I really wanted to do something completely unique to my personality. Remember how I said in a previous blog, I take a simple task or assignment and I find ways to do something completely different to make it my own? Well, such is my life, not very much interested in going the same route anymore, hasn’t worked for me in the past and I need to do something completely different and very much my own.
Thus is why way back in February of last year I began writing a novel, I worked on it off and on when ever I had free time or could get myself into the mode of sitting down to write, my writing style is hand written first then I’ll go back and type all my notes out. Can be a bit more time consuming but you end up automatically creating the second draft as you type it. So that is where I am at right now. Have you ever been in a similar position? had to change your path or try something unique and different? I’d love to hear your experiences with that, so feel free to leave a comment down below!
