I discovered last night/early this morning, the beauty of actually enjoying what you’re studying in school. Before this moment, I always thought it was a myth, there was no way anyone could actually ENJOY their nightly readings, or writing papers on what seemed to be such unrelated topics. Yet, as soon as I switched my major this semester, it seems I have been enjoying practically every single assignment and reading. Weird, I know… Last night I was researching for my persuasive speech, the big wham bam of the semester for my public speaking class, and I found this video:
Now, as some of you may or may not know- I have an odd fascination with social media, and it’s role today in the workplace, especially how it is effecting us, Generation Y. So I decided to write my speech on just that- why everyone should be connected to social media outlets and the importance of branding yourself so that you are easily available to employers. I was up all night researching, and actually didn’t WANT to go to bed because of all the crazy statistics and journals I was finding… I’M SORRY, WHAT?! Who am I? I’m telling you- if the me a year ago could see me now, she wouldn’t know me now.
All in all, this just goes to show there was no way I would ever have been happy, nor good, at being a speech pathologist. My heart just wasn’t in it, and I couldn’t be happier…
You have nothing to lose by charging ahead and reaching for a dream, Aries. There is something you want that you feel is beyond your reach. You may have been making excuses in your mind for some time now. You may feel you aren’t smart enough, talented enough, or charismatic enough. You could be intimidated by all there is to know or perhaps the skills that are required. The time is right, and you are up to the challenge.
