Yet an incredible week has come to an end after many late hours of hard work on client- and side projects. There are times when I doubt what I do and feel the urge to get a “regular” job to get a more consistent (and sometimes higher) income. There is nothing wrong in realising that working for yourself isn’t your thing, but if you know deep down that you truly want to work for yourself, you should do everything you can to keep going and push on, because better days are coming. Days like yesterday and this morning, where I can truly appreciate how privileged and fortunate I am for so much in my life, and most of all for the fact that I can wake up every day and do work that I love doing. I’m sure I would have a lot of fun working for someone else, especially for a few specific companies, but I would always wonder how happy I would be if I could go back to working for myself. You have to have self-responsibility over your life and over how your choices affects the people around you. Fortunately I have the opportunity to build up the life I truly want from a very young age by listening to my own heart, instead of rushing to buying a house, car, summer home and so on. How you choose to live your life is completely up to you, your personality and the dreams you have. As long as you listen to your own heart, you are doing the right thing. When I started out I was so incredibly excited and knew I could do this, but I was also scared as hell. I made tons of mistakes, I still do, and at the beginning I was so embarrassed when I made mistakes, when people criticised me for it. But it’s so obvious, of course I’m going to make mistakes because I’ve never done this before. But whether if I fail or not is not the important part, the important part is that I did it. I did it, faced my fears head on and followed my heart and did what I truly wanted to do regardless of how hard it would be. That’s how I want to live my life every single day until I take my last breath, standing strong against all odds, with the people I love standing next to me. This is the only chance I’ve got, and I’m not going to waste it on living someone else’s life.
