I love those motivation banners, that is what you call them, right?
Here we go, i’m not a teenager anymore. I’ll get it.
What is success, this is what I am asking you.
Years ago, I think that it was around the time the fashion looked like today – so yes, possibly the mid-90′s: there I was, the young Teenage me.
Back then I have pictured myself as a mid 30 woman to be settled. With a proper husband, kids, the whole deal. Yes, I really thought that this would be perfect, and I would be happy.
I knew I wanted to work within the Entertainment world, and it took me some time to realize, nope the stage is not for you!
Mostly because back in the day I underestimated how much work I would need to put into my voice as a singer. Plus I found out that I was a quite alright dancer to late. But this is all a different story I might tell you later on.
So, I was telling you about the time back when I thought that being ‘settled’ was the a normal thing when you are 30+
I have been reading a lot of blogs; there are usually 2 types of women in her 30ties.
The happy mommies.
The Single Ladies with the excellent Job – who has enough money to buy 3 pair of shoes per month and is enjoying her super single life.
I do not fit into either of them.
Now : do I have to worry?
To be fair, I pay double rent : I guess the higher you climb career wise – the lesser you pay for pretty much anything.
No, my new company never asked how I managed to move for 3 month into a new city within 10 days.
I believe nowhere in our modern world is it possible to just leave your flat so fast…so yes, I’m paying for my flat and moved back into the lovely flat-sharing situation : it is back to college time.
What part I wanted to look into was not at all my living conditions : I’m sure those will come up soon enough…but the success story.
Am I not successful? I assume I’m not interesting enough that my company would have considered a place to stay.
I’m reading a lot about different companies, and to be fair, I don’t know if I want to be self employed. I like working in a team and have a common goal with my colleagues, yet after 7 years I feel that most companies are not usually take their employees for granted. Is this something that you yourself has been through? I would love hear how the tumblr community feels about this issue.
I am also putting everything together and might consider starting my own business.
At least I am happy with what I have achieved and not feel so dumb, like a secretary.
Success : I never thought I would be not as successful as I pictures myself 20 years ago. And by that: I would not be able to have kids and give them the life my mum used to give me when I was a child.
I don’t have the position at the top, where I see myself. I might have been to pushy in the way that I only wanted to work in certain field: I have stopped caring about it.
Back in the day I would have thought these past years were a waste, but I know, I’ve learned an awesome much about people and style and how to lead.
There is a lot to go for. And I am excited to make my way. At least I am able to meet exceptionally interesting people.
