When Do We Really Start Living For Ourselves?!

I was watching Life Of Kylie the other night (which is about the normal side to Kylie Jenner's life if you haven't seen it) and watching Kylie and Jordyn talking about their lifes really got me thinking ... what do I really want in life?

Growing up I was surrounded by people who have always known what they want to do with their lives and what career paths they wanted to take. I've had a few ideas of things I would probably like to do but after a couple of months, if that, I'd lose interest and be stuck again with no clue what I want to do. I'm always changing my mind and now I'm 18, have left college and am looking for jobs, none of which are jumping out to me as something I'd be interested in. After applying for god knows how many hundred jobs and not being able to get those, I've been thinking about what the next step is for me.

I don't want to get into a job that I won't be passionate about and wont be very fulfilling, then get caught up and realize I'm 30 and haven't truly been happy or achieved my dreams. 

We will work most days until we're early/mid 60's and then wont have the energy we do now to properly enjoy our time. So why are we wasting our time working unfulfilling jobs? ... whats really going to matter on our death beds - how much we earned? or how happy we were? Personally happiness means more to me than money ever will and the thought of working in a job I really dislike and am not passionate about genuinely scares me.

Jordyn: "When do we really start living for ourselves?"

After I heard Jordyn saying this, it really got me thinking ... why am I getting lead into a career by my parents that I no longer feel passionate about? I guess I've just got to have a long think about my future and what I really want to get out of my life, what I want to achieve and what I want to experience.

To me life is about experiences, travelling and spending as much time as possible with Friends and Family.

So what do I really want to do?

Since I've started Blogging, my passion for it has grown and grown everyday, I get exited to write posts, to take pictures and to design my blog. Blogging is something I'd eventually like to do full time and thats why I'm grafting hard now to hopefully make that happen one day!

Blogging could also help to open more doors for me ... I'm not quite sure what they could be right now but I'd love to work with brands and potentially get into modelling, which I know I would enjoy and love to do ... but then again am I 'right' for modelling.

This post was something I wanted to talk about and get off of  my chest by talking to all of you about it and it was a bit of a spur of the moment post so I'm sorry if it's a bit jumbled.

If you're in a similar position as me then please let me know and maybe we can have a chat in the comments below!

What are your goals?

Until next time,
