Shooting for the Moon
I feel like the happiest, most successful people are the ones who follow their passions whole heartedly. They creatively find ways to make money doing what they love. I want to be one of these people!
I have already gone through some of the “how to make $ doing what you love” phases.
Phase 1) I’m never going to find a way to make money doing what I really love.
Phase 2) What do I really love to do??? (Besides just running)
Phase 3) I love to run, help others, and be creative in the forms of writing/ blogging, drawing, and most recently making videos. Oh, and I REALLY, REALLY love exploring. Is there a way to make a job out of that?
Phase 4) In response to phase 3- No
Phase 5/ Current Phase) In response to phase 3- Maybe…how?
So here I am now with literally tons of ideas on things to write about and places to explore while taking photographs and making videos. I know what I really want to do this summer. I want to go around exploring trails while sharing them with others through blogs, pictures, and videos. I want to be able to tell people the best places to camp (maybe aim this towards women who camp alone and want to feel safe), where the best coffee shop is, give people some history and the feel of different places, and where to find a shower. I would also love to interview some inspiring people along the way whether it’s a Colorado thru hiker or town local.
Is making myself a job like this at all possible? I know many people would tell me no. Heck, I’ve repeatedly told myself no. However, if I don’t go for what I really want, I will end up with a job I really don’t want. As the saying goes “Shoot for the moon. If you miss, at least you will end up among the stars.”
Here is to shooting for the moon.
