When I was a child, I couldn’t wait to grow older and do the things that adults do. Today that I am an adult, a part of wants to go back to childhood and enjoy a worry free life. Isn’t it ironic? When we were young we’d always copy the things that our parents, aunts, uncles, cousin, relatives and friends that are older than us. We always look up to these people and try to imitate every single thing they do thinking it was cool. But as time passes by, when our responsibilities become bigger, bills pile up, we need to start working to cover up for all expenses like rent or mortgage for the home we live in, daily meals, gas for car owners, etc. we always wish to go back to our lives when we were still a child living a care free life. The only problems we had are very basic and will really not cost anything in the future.
Growing up means having more responsibilities and by this we mean obligations that we need to do and fulfill in order for us to secure a good and bright future ahead of us. If you’ve reached the level that you are already working and paying for your own expenses without the help of your parents and other guardian then yes you are very much welcome to the real world. This however is a pain streaking process because you have to weigh your options whether to work on something related your interest, apply for a job based on your qualifications and capabilities or go look for something that pays you good.
We’ve all heard of individuals who grew up in a family of doctors that his or her parents expect him or her to follow the same career path. However instead of doing that, he or she decides to follow his or her passion by becoming an engineer who works for various kinds of construction firms. The very first thing he or she does is purchase Cherry Picker, other small tools, devices and equipment that is needed to do all the tasks in most of the contruction projects that he or she gets.
You see, people always find themselves in different crossroads when it comes to the various decisions they need to make. From the career path to choose and consider the environment they grew up into, the opinions of their parents and guardians, their skills, capabilities and other talents that will make up and help in the decision making process. Some people use their brain by choosing a job that will provide for their needs and cover up for all their expenses, as this is a big step in assuring a bright future ahead of them. Otherwise, other people choose to follow their heart and get a job connected to their interest or passion. This may sometimes mean that they will get a lower paying job. Nevertheless, the happiness and self fulfillment that this person will feel is more than enough to cover up what’s lacking.
