Reverb Day 13 – One foot after another

Prompt: Action. When it comes to aspirations, it’s not about ideas. It’s about making ideas happen. What’s your next step?
I’m not sure what my next step is. Honestly, for a really long time I was just going in whatever path my life was going because it was easier than the disappointment that I was facing. When I was funemployed, I went on a lot of interviews. There were one or two that I totally bombed, a few that were positions that I wasn’t qualified for and more than enough that I rocked so hard that it hurt.

Those were the jobs that I did not get. And so I let my idea of being a media buyer go. Much like I let my idea of working in radio go. When I was in college, I thought my future was to be on the radio. Guess who is not in a target demographic? A 20 year old girl. So, I let that dream go. I had to. I’ve done things that I regret when it comes to my career and where my life is going because I HAD TO.

What does this have to do with making ideas happen? In 2011, I need to have better ideas. Ideas of things that I CAN do.

My next step is just taking the next step. My next big thing is trying to figure out what’s the next big thing is. Because honestly, I have no idea. I don’t know what I want to do or where I want to go. I just know that I need to figure out what’s next so I can do it.
