When life gets blurry, adjust your focus. – Anon
Sometimes we plan things in our lives but they don’t necessarily go the way we hoped they would. And trying to change direction may feel like the most difficult thing ever but sometimes it may be for the best. And you may learn something else along the way.
For example, many people that I know (and myself included) went to school for one thing but ended up getting jobs in other fields. I got a Bachelor’s degree in interior design; however, right out of school, I didn’t get a job in the industry like I had planned. It completely sucked! And applying to jobs was terrible too especially when you didn’t hear back.
It took a lot of trial and error but I figured out that I wanted to go back to school and take some Graphic Design courses (I had remembered enjoying using Photoshop and Illustrator for our design presentations). I am so glad I did because I ultimately got a job working for a stationery design company (which has opened up so many more possibilities) and loved it! I really enjoyed it, even more than interior design.
Sometimes making adjustments is what’s needed and that’s okay.
