Have you ever let dreams fall to the wayside? Maybe life has hit unexpectedly, and you find yourself not where you thought you’d be. Maybe you always had that dream and are waiting for the right circumstances to make that dream a reality. Regardless of whether you let your dreams die or are waiting for them happen, I want to let you know that I am familiar with that feeling all too well. In fact, I am at a place where I am starting to let my dreams fly again and think purposefully along the lines of what it will take to make those dreams more and more my reality.
Back in high school, I went to a job shadow for graphic design and I let some elements of that interview scare me into not pursuing design as a career. I pursued Accountancy instead, thinking that my introverted self would like to sit at a desk and record transactions. How wrong was I? I went back to school to give graphic design that chance. And it has been the most amazing, frustrating, and rewarding decision of my life. Before graduating, I was given opportunities that I found recently are leading me to be the design entrepreneur I have once dreamed of. It both excites me and scares me. Yet that fire is starting to be rekindled. And things are falling into place that are becoming stepping stones towards that dream.
