I don’t always have these days. I’m usually capable of pulling myself out of any slump that I find myself getting into and I can encourage myself to keep moving forward. However, today is just one of those days where I don’t feel like I’ll be able to pull myself out of the slump.
I’m sorry if you’re tired of hearing me talk about YouTube or Instagram, but this is the curse of social media. Almost everyday I see the people that I follow living their dreams and building themselves a life they love. I constantly scroll through pictures of them traveling the world, hanging out with company reps, or just enjoying being able to spend time with their family/friends (since they can make their own schedules).
There’s this one specific YouTube personality that I enjoy watching and following on social media. Her name is Rachel (Rach) and her YouTube channel is LoveBLENDnBeauty. I love watching her because she’s extremely knowledgable when it comes to makeup and beauty products and she’s been working her butt off, and now she’s at her dream job, doing what she loves. She’s basically the only YouTube personality that hasn’t become a “sell out.” I love her because she’s always honest when it comes to reviewing products and the products that she uses. She sometimes even states that if we see her using a lot of one brand, then it’s just because she likes it not because she’s being sponsored.
With all of that being said, I just started to feel like I’ll never find that one thing that I’ll be good at and be able to make a living off of. Does that make sense? I see all of these people making a living doing what they’re good at, but I feel like I won’t be like them. I don’t want to feel lost. Since I feel like I’m never going to find that one thing that I’m good at, I feel like I won’t be happy with anything that I’m doing. Have any of you felt this way? What advice do you have??
