People think because a person has a degree that automatically they get to work a glamorous job and make stacks of money.
Sure the opportunities are out there, but what if that’s not what a person wants?
What if my goal is to work with a great team somewhere and be happy.
Of course, there are bills to pay but are we really living to work?
That’s not how I pictured my life going.
Maybe my goals are too picturesque or cliche. Not set in reality. But I don’t think it’s hard to find a nice group of people and make your job something more than that. Something you enjoy
Maybe my goals are too simple for the NYC grind and area.
Maybe my home will be somewhere out west or south or even another country.
I’m a firm believer that life is what you make it.
But what if the people around me truly are to blame for my negative outlook.
I’ve been patient for a while hoping that if I’m nice and do everything I need to do to keep the peace that maybe people would change.
Maybe they would appreciate the things that I do for them without them asking.
But these people never do.
These people are only happy when you’re doing everything they ask and nothing more. When you say what they want you to say and act like another one of the sheep like they do.
I never was a sheep and I never will be
I’m like a lotus flower wrapped in diamonds
Sculpted by the pressure and atmosphere around me
The dirt is more my friend and family than people related to me by blood at times
I know things could be so much worse
I know my life is great on the surface
I could not be living at all
I try my best to embrace each day that comes
The thought of not waking up seems like a sweet release compared to living this life that I live
Where money has become more important to people than company
Maybe it’s time to stop being comfortable. To leave and find my tribe.
I may have lost my leaves. But trust me when I say
I will grow
And I will flourish again in the spring
I always do.
It’s in my nature
