Don't Wait For It To Happen, Go Make It Happen
Happiness is always a choice. We can’t just wait for something good to happen to us, we have to make it happen. I believe that with passion and hard work we can do anything in life. They say practice what you preach and my past week has made it even clearer to me that if you are passionate about what you want and are willing to work hard for it, you will, in time, get to where you want to be.
For the past week I have been interning at The Sunday Times Style Magazine. Since working at Style my world has woken up. I have seen a glimpse of what my future can and will look like and there is no giving up now. I am filled with so much excitement about what is to come next for me. The people that I work with inspire me daily and I have looked up to them as journalists for a long time now. It is amazing having the opportunity to work with people that inspire you and that you can learn from.
To get to this stage in my life I have had my fair share of disappointments and obstacles thrown in my way. We can either dwell on our setbacks or we can use them as motivation to progress and grow. I have overcome everything so far and there is no doubt that I will overcome any other hurdles that are put in my way. I know where I want to get to in the next few years, and nothing is going to stand in my way. I am so happy with the stage that I am currently at in my life as I have worked so hard to get here. This stage of my life is what years of focus and determination has been building up to. The things that we are passionate about are what we are destined to do in life.
Since finishing my degree at University I have continued to follow my passions of writing and being creative, which have brought so much joy and fulfilment into my life. I have felt empowered over the last few months as I am doing something that makes me happy. I am so close to reaching my goal of becoming a journalist, which I have dreamt of for most of my life and I need to give it one more push to get there.
An immense amount of happiness comes from doing something that we love. When we love something, we give it our best effort always. We feel motivated on a regular basis. There is no reason why we shouldn’t be doing something that we love. We only get one shot at this life. We must not spend it doing something that does not make us happy. Nobody should settle for anything in life that does not meet their expectations or desires. If you want something, go after it and it will be yours.
