I’m in a rut. I’m in a rut and I need a change. Every day I fantasize about what I would be doing had I made some different decisions when I was younger, like one of those books where you have to choose between options in order to continue. I think about where’d I’d be, how much debt I’d be in and where I’d be living. I need a change to stop the fantasy.
My job is fine. I’ve never NOT liked my job and it’s done well for several years now. My problem is that I want more. See, when you’ve had just a tiny taste of the sweet life, you start to notice exactly what’s missing from your own. Nothing has happened to me lately. None of my friends have won large sums of money. I haven’t been on a lavish, grand vacation. Nothing to make me know what a kept life would feel like. No, I’ve simply started reading Harry Potter.
J.K Rowling doesn’t necessarily have a rags to riches story. Like say, Chris Gardner, the main character in the film the Pursuit of Happiness. Yes, she was a single mother and worried about bills, but she did go to college. She also was able to travel and had plenty of friends and family to back her. Then, one day while riding on the train, she came up with a multi-million dollar concept. An idea that the masses could identify with that flipped her world upside down.
I want to do this.
I want to do something that will make a huge impact, and yes, a lot of money. Not because I want to be rich necessarily, (but who’s going to lie and say that wouldn’t be fantastic) more because I want to stop the routine and make a huge wave. To have people all over the world want to know my story. I want more than an average life. I’ve decided I want the fantasy. Contradicting as that may be.
