Today’s blog is about following your dreams. Perhaps this does not seem to fit the category of being practical, but I would argue that it does.
Folks sometimes spend a great deal of time and money being trained for a job that they quickly decide they detest. This is very sad; as the old saying goes, “Find a job you love and you will never work a day in your life.”
I know a young man who went to school to become a computer developer, only to discover when he got into the job market that he really hated development. He took a leap of faith one day and started his own user-experience company, which he loves. He works very long hours but has a creative job that gives him financial and emotional rewards.
Likewise, I felt the call to become a college instructor 10 years ago, and never looked back in spite of long hours, sometimes-disruptive students, no benefits, and low pay. I love it. Earlier this year, I felt the need to write a book which I eventually called “Suddenly Single: A Practical Guide to Maintaining Your Household When Your Spouse is NLA” (No Longer Available). It was a labor of love which may be paying off. I just got an email from a highly-respected literary agent who believes in the book (and me) and wants to represent me.
Would I have guessed that my future held this? Nope, not even last year. But, by following my dreams, it looks like my dream to be a published author through Suddenly Single is one step closer!
