Does it dry up
In the past four months I’ve come to a conclusion. There are two types of people in the world. People who dream and people who don’t. For some reason after you turn 21 people act like you’re not allowed to dream for something better anymore. “Buckle down, pay bills, sit in traffic and hate your life.” I’ve heard horror stories from old friends and coworkers about their job “post grad” life. Everything from nervous break downs in cubicles and crying in parking lots on lunch breaks. This shouldn’t be normal.
Society says: Find a job, keep the job, deal with it no matter what. I say:Find a good job that’s the right fit and keep it. 70 hour weeks? Employees dying from being overworked? People asking you to lie? Throwing others under the bus? Is it worth that paycheck?
Your soul is not for sale.
Your integrity and dignity are not for sale.
Your life has meaning and purpose.
Happiness is not a state of being for people under the age of 21.
The economy is not too bad for you to quit a horrible situation.
Keep dreaming and making goals! Keep smiling and holding on to what you believe in! Don’t let the world steal your dreams and your joy. I think of that liberating scene in the Devil wears Prada where Andy gets out of the limo, throws her sidekick into the fountain of the Place de la Concorde and walks off. You know who you are and who you aren’t. Don’t let them anyone try to distort your vision.
