Late Night Thoughts

Since graduating from Temple University, I've been asking myself "what now"? What do I do now that I've gotten my bachelor's degree? Do I apply for a full-time job that I don't want or do I throw myself completely into my music? Do I apply for a part-time job at a retail store or should I find a media job, which will help me with my dreams? These are the thoughts that keep me up at night while others are sound asleep. These thoughts remind me that I don't have a plan and I'm just letting my heart lead me like an shepherd does its sheep. I'm owned by my dream of becoming an award winning recording artist. But....is that really a bad thing? No, it's not...but it sure is scary. What if I fail? That's what I ask myself. As soon as that thought crosses my mind, I remember that I can't fail...this is what I was born to do. One way or another, I will find my way to Hollywood, to the Grammys, to the VMAs...to success. My success may look different than yours. It may look like failure to you at first. No, I probably won't find a job that I'm passionate about a few months after graduation because I've already found my dream job. It doesn't consist of an application process, an interview, or any of the things that one would expect. My dream job takes me all over the world to sing for people of all shapes, sizes, and creeds. It allows me to record and share my music with billions of people. It is one in a million. I know. But, I am that one... So, even though I'm up late stressing about the future. I'm sure it will work out for my good.
