It’s 4am, I just woke up from a short „nap“ I wanted to take at 10pm (oops) and I feel like talking.
I often ask myself „what do you want to achieve?“ - what are your goals, what do you even work for, why are you doing what your doing & most importantly: are you happy?
Some people have a clear vision of their future. How their life needs to look, how many children & what they want to achieve with their job. I have to say, I don’t. (Maybe yes regarding the „children thing“ haha but not regarding the job). I don’t know what will have happened in 10 years. I mean, at the moment my life is changing every week. Next week there will be a majooor technical change (not really a change, rather an addition) to my blog which has 3 letters and is super cool - can you guesssss?
So back to the topic: what’s my ultimate ambition? - My ultimate ambition is being happy.
I thought about this question for a pretty long time but "being happy" sums it up I guess.
I always try to listen to my heart and do what makes me happy. For now, I feel happiness if I inspire others, if I read through my Instagram comments and realize that some of you started eating healthy because of my posts, if I go on my blog and see how many joined my workouts, if I'm able to tell you some things you didn't know before, even about make up - basically: I feel happiness if I have a positive impact on you girls out there. And in order to achieve that I put a lot of work in. My day doesn't consist out of 8-9 hours of work. Sometimes I work till 2 o'clock in the night because I want to finish everything before I go to bed. You may ask yourself - what the hell is she working on till 2am? Good question, a big part of my day is packed with things that will probably become official at the beginning or mid of 2017. Kind of strange, right? But realizing how awesome the projects and the people are I am working with is just awesome.
Nikeata Thompson for example found some nice words yesterday. She told us girls that she knows it’s hard to be self-employed and independent at our young age. And she encouraged us to be strong - because sometimes it’s difficult to be strong 24/7 and to have enough self-confidence to live up to your role as a „Social Media Person“. SO kind of her. She's so nice!!
I can also - totally - understand the people that don’t see the sense behind my Instagram & Blog Posts at the first glance (trust me, most adults, especially interviewers, don't). Of course we bloggers are no nurses or doctors, who are saving lifes on a daily basis - but neither are bankers and their job is also regarded as a „proper job“ in society. But we are having a tiny positive impact on our followers on a daily basis. Maybe we’re motivating them to work for their dreams, maybe we motivate them to go the gym or maybe we „only“ bring a smile to their face if they watch our snaps and feel entertained. Every little, positive impact counts.
So what do you want to achieve? Are you happy with your life? And do you have certain goals? Tell me in the comments or write me an email if it’s too personal for you! I’d love to hear your story xx
