Congratulations! Remembering that day (Graduation) makes me smile… It was full of excitement! The air was easy to breathe and the genie was fulfilling my every wish. I laughed, dance and celebrated with family and friends and opened all the gifts…amazed at how thoughtful people were with their gift selection (especially the ones in the envelope).
Feeling grateful and motivated was the order of the day, in fact that feeling lasted a few days…weeks even. Then reality set in …expectations were different; and I felt it.
Move out of my parents home, buy a car and live the singles life (urban style)! I wanted it to happen, quick…Realizing the obvious, I knew the entry-level job that I was in wasn’t going to meet the bill. The work-study job was over and the designer things I purchased with my gift cards began to feel like a dumb thing to do. I immediately did the math…basic expenses plus recreation left me in deficit mode… additional income is what I wanted, needed – Now!
The fact that I graduated really meant my support system had changed drastically. I had decisions to make and soon…After-all, I dreamed about this time for many years and I wasn’t about to give up my “urban lifestyle” dream…So the search was on!
Find a better job, work overtime were the first options I thought of and exactly what I did; however having my own business was always my dream and finally years later, I’m a business owner. I share this story to encourage you to follow your dream Now! It’s your time, embrace it! Do You!
