Sometimes I wonder whether I’m giving in or giving into another season. This constant struggle is called wanting to work full time. It almost seems incomprehensible when I’m sitting at a cafe working on my computer and watching the sun outside. Lately, I have really been noticing people who work hard and get next to nothing. It’s probably because I can feel their struggle. That’s why, after having the best customer service phone call of MY LIFE today, I gave her an excellent recommendations. I hope she gets promoted because she deserves it.
So in the brink of wanting to give in, I was suddenly struck with inspiration and desire. Desire to keep going, to keep believing in my vision. That which used to stop me, I have decided to push, pray until it happens. Push, physically with all my mind and soul. This phrase is posted outside a gospel church on my street “push, pray until something happens”.
I know how it feels to be doing what you love and not getting what you deserve for it. In the end, you push forward until something happens.
You keep persevering when the world tells you you can’t.
Because you really CAN. If you believe that you can.
Lately, I have tried everything that I can, anything that people told me I couldn’t or shouldn’t. I do it anyways. Only to win, only to score, only to get the part. I’m a dead woman walking. Kill me and I’m still alive.
That’s why I’m here to tell you that you can, you really can do what you love, you really can be WHO you want to be. If you don’t want to be a robot, you can be human. You can believe that relationships are at the CORE of your work, not on the side of it. You can believe that life is more than routine, pleasing others, and feeling depressed.
You are meant to be alive.
Peace, Rebekka – your fellow dream doer.
PS. – so you really can DO it, you just got to NOT GIVE UP.

Keep it up. We all feel that same emotion. But live on the frugal and be smart. Think for tomarrow. It comes faster than you think;)
thanks a bunch! I appreciate your encouragement!
