So today I was having a convo with some friends about our jobs, life, love, relationships…I would call them the usual things people find themselves talking about at one stage or another. At first it started off as a complaining competition; all of us moaning about what could be better….Then, as conversation moved we started thinking and talking about the way we could change things. We had some weird, wonderful and pretty dumb ideas about how we could make our millions so that we could spend our days doing something we love.
A natural pause came in our conversation and one of my friends brought up how someone she knew left a mundane job for a life on stage. The job on stage was the ideal job for that person. Yet when they got it there were still some things they did not like I.e. constant judgment in auditions, the rejection of not getting parts, being away from family while on tour. On the flip side there were things the person loved I.e bringing a story to life, meeting loads of new people and extended holidays….It struck me how even in the dream job, there will be things I do not like.
The conversation left me feeling driven and empowered because I had started doutring the writing and singing I thought I wanted to do because sometimes I get really tired!…
Truth be told whatever we do we will get tired and frustrated…might as well spend the time doing something we love…
Just a thought!
