Over the years, my answers to the questions, “Where would you like to work?” and “What’s your dream job?” have been quite varied. As many of you know, I’m interested in a great deal of different things, and that attribute has carried over into my view of jobs and careers.
I don’t ever have one thing in mind; I have a whole bunch of things in mind when it comes to jobs. Because of this, and thanks to my ability to skip back and forth between being passionate about something and needing a break from it for a while, I have recently come to realize and accept something about myself.
My Dream Job
I love to write. I love being creative, help others with their writing, planning small events, and digitally editing photos. I love getting messy in the kitchen, holding photoshoots, running a daily blog, and so much more.
But all of my biggest hobbies are just that; hobbies. Yes, they are real careers and high-paying jobs for many people, but at this time in my life, I can’t see any of them permanently filling my future.
I’m currently seventeen years old, and haven’t had my first job yet. In a way, I’m embarrassed, like I should be earning money and being able to provide for myself a bit, but I know deep down in my heart that this is the Lord’s plan for me right now, and I desire to be content in this time of waiting.
Wherever the Lord leads me is where I desire to be … which includes whatever jobs He will have for me. But I will say that the job that I dream of is to be a published writer. It just seems a bit farfetched for me right now because I’ve only finished maybe a dozen books in the nine years I’ve been writing, and they’re only first drafts, but one day, I’d love to have at least one book published! That would make me so happy and excited. Maybe the Lord will work that out one day 🙂
So, now you know a bit more about me and how I view my future! How about you?
