This week I want to take about growth and managing expectations, specifically in regards to self growth - body image-self love- what others think of you.
What others think of you.
Today I am on my way to apply to go back to school in Sound Engineering. It has taken me 10 years to get to this point.
For years I worked jobs that were cool, jobs that paid more, jobs that when I said what I did people went “oh! You were there!” With excitement. But not a single one of these jobs made me happy and at no point could I imagine creating a career out of it. I was miserable for so long trying to make more money and have “grown up” jobs that changed the way people looked at me. It wasn’t worth it.
This year I had an epiphany...that my life was not worth living unless I could do what made me happiest. Music. Sound. That being said, just because you know what you want to do or a part of who you are doesn’t mean that it’s going to be easy and without struggle. I am prepared for that struggle. Whether it’s your job, your friends, how you feel about yourself-body-mind-soul...every decision you make, MAKE IT FOR YOURSELF. It is not worth wasting years trying to appease other people. At the end of the day YOU are the one living your life. Be proud to be You. 🖤 #photooftheday #instagay #instagood #witchesofinstagram #witch #goth #inked #piercing #lgbt #queer #musician #tattoo #girlswithtattoos #girlswithink #montreal #canada #whynter #modified #alternative #selfie #tattoolove #tattoosofinstagram #love #girlswithpiercings #inkedgirls #rocknroll #selflove #jeffreestarcosmetics
