“We’re not meant to be normal”
I’ve heard that so many times in the last week, in regards to writers and the overly creative hearts.
We really aren’t meant to be normal, not even a little bit. We can pretend we enjoy the nitty gritty of the real world and work right along with the best of them, building our name, climbing the ladder of success.
But are we truly happy doing it?
We can justify the money, the acknowledgment and the sense of achievement we get from moving on up in the real world…. but are we really truly happy and fulfilled?
I feel, in most cases, we are not.
Not unless that ladder and those achievements revolve around our need to be creative. Because that is our real world.
Some of us are not meant to feel fulfilled working the 9-5 gimmick.
I honestly end up feeling so stifled and hushed once I reach the point in my muggle job where things are running in an autopilot mode and I no longer feel challenged.
In some cases, I like it. The more I run on auto at work, the faster I get things done and (in reality) the sooner I am released to focus on my writing.
But In most cases, that isn’t how things play out.
I usually end up with more on my plate simply because I’ve proven myself to be a reliable asset and dedicated worker .
If only they knew I really just wanted to leave , sip on some tea and get lost in a few far away worlds.
I know this started off as smart and turned into a ramble rant lol but heck, that’s how my mind has been running lately.
Might as well just go with it
