Choosing a Career & Living Your Dreams

You've gotta make the most of your life, don't let yourself get stuck in a dead end job you don't even like. Work hard to create the life you want, its not impossible to do. If someone else has done it, then what's stopping you to do it as well. It doesn't matter what sort of person you are, you can make things happen, you just need to work out what it is you need to do and take the steps to get there. It might not always be easy but then if it was everyone would be doing it. Everyone who has an amazing dream job has worked bloody hard to get there and also they have never given up, however many step backs you might get, NEVER GIVE UP, the point your about to give up could be the point where your life could change?! You've gotta be that person to take a step forward, come out of your comfort zone, try something new and work your arse off....what have you got to lose?! It's better to have tried something then to regret not trying and always wondering what if?!

For years now i've never really known what i wanted to do with my life, i left school not knowing what to do at college so just got a part time job in Next. I then decided to go for a beauty course a year on but it was never in me enough to wanna do treatments on people and i never had a desire to work in a salon. My friend was doing a Cabin Crew course and i like travel and holidays so i thought i'd try that...again tho i was never passionate enough to work on a plane, i just wanted to go on the actual holiday! I did try and do an evening makeup course along side cabin crew but stupidly quit that a few months in. After all that i decided to go back to do level 3 massage as i liked the idea of relaxation, mediation...all that stuff! Again tho, i felt like i couldn't imagine myself massaging people back to back all day as a job, it was again...i would prefer to get the massage myself. For years i felt so lost and stressed cos i was only getting older and still not knowing what i really wanted to do with my life...
Whilst i was at college tho, it was the first time i found youtube, i remember i used to love watching Foxy Locks Extensions and Zoella (back when she first started) It all looked so much fun that i decided to pluck up the courage and start a channel myself...i didn't have a lot of confidence tho and the thought of someone i knew watching me or finding my videos scared me so much that i did keep deleting videos when i would re watch them back and at one point i thought omg this is too embarrassing so stopped uploading for about 7 months?

Of course tho i missed it WAY TOO MUCH so i had to come back...i had literally found MY PASSION! :-)
Now this was something i could see myself doing for the rest of my life cos i absolutely loved it, everything about it. I am a creative kinda person and now i understand why i could never find a career i wanted to do, because no 'normal' kinda jobs excited me enough. I literally thought about so many different career paths but just none stood out enough....until i met youtube that is.

All tho back then i never knew you could do it as a career, i just knew i loved doing it. NOW tho i see people can do it full time which is so amazing. I just hope one day i can get to that place too, i love how creative youtube lets you be so i believe it's what I'm destined to do cos it suits me so well. I don't even care how long it takes, as long as i get there one day...but the sooner the better cos my current job right now is SO BLOODY BORING! :/ lol

What is your dream job? I'd love to know in the comments :-)
