It’s hard to believe that it’s almost been a year since I’ve finished school. I like to think that I’ve accomplished a lot for myself since then. I’ve moved to Kitchener-Waterloo, I have a job that I love doing what I’m passionate about and I have my own place. I’m also getting my business going in any way that I can so I’m pretty happy about it.
Even though I’ve accomplished a lot, it comes with a lot of stress and questions. Is this it – where do I go from here? How can I get my business to be more than just a hobby on the side? Is Kitchener where I want to live for the rest of my life?
I am the kind of person who stresses out over the littlest things and over things that haven’t even happened yet. I like certainty so things like this stress me out. It’s been a hard few months for me. It’s not easy to go from living at home to living by yourself and having to support yourself in every aspect. It is a huge change and something that takes some getting used to.
The career path that I have chosen isn’t the one that is going to earn me the most money, but it is the one that will make me the happiest. This is something that I strongly believe in following. When I graduated high school, I was on the path to become an accountant, which would have been a safe choice. But you can’t do something that you don’t love. You have to enjoy what you do or you’re going to be miserable and to me, that’s just not worth it.
I know that I am just starting off in my career and I love it already. I am getting more business these days from friends and family, especially with it being wedding season. I can’t wait to see what the future will bring for me and my baking adventures 🙂
