Working for myselfThursday, July 28, 2016
How are you all doing? I feel like this space hasnt been updated with my personal posts in awhile and I'm really terribly sorry that other social media platforms seem to have replaced this space for that kind of posts. Well, if any of you are still here reading this, thank you.
Many of you probably don't know this, because I haven't had the chance to sit down properly to tell you guys this piece of news yet - but i am currently pursuing blogging full time now. As a full-time social media creative (I guess, thats the most appropriate title to give myself? I really don't like the term "blogger" or "influencer" because they have some negative connotations to it for some weird reason)
It took me many months to have the courage to pursue my passion. Drop all opportunities that were presented to me in the corporate world, to chase this dream and passion of mine.
I just wanted to let you guys know that I am very happy everyday, doing what I love. Even though it may look simple and glamorous on the outside, it really isn't. Every photo, every content, every campaign goes through hours of tears and sweat, and sleepless nights before they get put up there..
And ever since I graduated from University, the amount of hours I've spent working everyday is way more than how long I would have to work in a conventional, desk bound, corporate job.
Working for yourself means constantly setting higher and higher expectations, always pushing yourself to be better and achieve even more. The more hardworking you are, the more you get done, the greater the satisfaction you feel. But when is it ever enough?
I guess working for myself can be more stressful than working for someone else. After all, you are your own biggest critic, and humans are never satisfied. Our eyes are set on the next goal once everytime we achieve one, so I gotta constantly tell myself to slow down, enjoy the moment because I'm doing what I love and not many have the luxury to do that.
But I am happy, and I'm contented. Thank you all for reading this random post of mine with no order nor structure, but wherever you are or whatever you're doing. I hope you, my dear reader, will find the same amount of joy and happiness too xx
I'll be heading to London in just a few weeks time, can't wait!
