Now that 2016 is here it’s always a good time to rethink and start over. What you want to accomplish, goals, etc but it had me feeling like there is a lot of pressure to meet these goals, as well as the thought of being defined by something. Why do we have to be defined by something?
I’ve especially been thinking a lot about this since starting this blog. My whole life I have never been one of those people who is good at – fill in the blank – but have always been more of a creative type. This is what led me to styling and fashion, when I finally found something I was naturally good at.
I never had that natural ability feeling about anything until I started styling and helping people get dressed and feel comfortable as well as putting together a fun look for a photo shoot.
But at the same time, I’ve come to realize that not everyone will be good at one thing, that we don’t need one thing to define us; that life is a journey and you will do many things. I kept looking for that one thing and although I know now I have a talent for style, like knowing if a note is on key almost, that everything we will do or are doing will lead us towards more things. And it’s what we do with what we learn and our experiences that will get us to where we can be whatever we want.
All in all, don’t worry if you think you aren’t good at anything because it probably isn’t true. Everyone has many talents and it’s how we decide to use these talents.
What is something you are good at but isn’t a defined job in society per say?
