In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “In Due Time.”
There’s a right / perfect time for everything but in my case, I can’t wait for the right time or at least in this case, when I’m ready.
I recently (sort of recently) graduated, and I wrote about this dilemma a few posts ago, after graduation you’re expected to go find your way and earn your keep which is the way it should be. But I find it so hard to let go of the life I have which consists of waking up whatever time I want, going to wherever, whenever and just being carefree. It’s not ideal, it’s not responsible and it’s also not the smartest thing to be doing at the age of 20 something something but I love it and I’m finding it really hard to let go of this life in exchange for working 9-5 (plus overtime and travel time) and also having little time for everything else. What I’m trying to say is that, I’m waiting for myself to be ready but I don’t think that’s ever gonna come. That’s why I decided that next year (because it’s too late to start this year with it being mid December and all) I’m gonna do it, I’m gonna go get myself a job.
I can’t wait for that time to come because my clock’s ticking. Even though all I want to do is take pictures and write, I can’t or I can’t right now because I have to work in order to get there. And that folks is real life.
Since I’m an annoyingly optimistic person this is just one of those things that I have to conquer.
