I admit, I usually am not a reader by any means. I can barely get past the text book chapters assigned to me and usually I don’t even get that far. I have in the past disliked to read mainly for the fact that I was assigned to read certain books in high school and English college classes. With that and lack of time finishing up my senior year, pushing head first into my business, Nannying, and going home to visit family as much as possible by the end of the day I really just want to sit and sew some more…or sleep!
The past few months have been quite a change in my life and big changes are going to continue through the next year in regards to family, school, and maybe a real job after graduation??
As for that real job, I would love to be able to push my business into a whole new direction and possibly a brick and mortar shop. With that all said that is a lot of work for a 21 year old. And a longarm is in the vision/works within the next year.
The bottom line of this post and in regards to the book is to do what you love and don’t stop pushing for it until you get there. Yes, cliche but out right true. I have wanted to be a doctor my whole life, follow in my dad’s footsteps, but he has constantly reminded me that I need to do something that just comes to me naturally. And yes, I do love studying all about the brain and it comes pretty naturally, but recently I have realized that I love something even more…Design.
Now where that will take me in the future I don’t know yet, but keep your eye out, because you just might be seeing me!
So a little inspiration from dad and The Help by Kathryn Stockett has really opened my eyes! The book was recommended to me by the kids mother, I work for. She does a lot of reading and seems to like the same type of books I do. I actually could not put this book down!
It is about the “help” that work for the wealthy white families in Jackson Mississippi and how one of the white ladies, Miss Skeeter, decided to pursue her writing dreams after college, behind her parents back.
Check it out! It was a wonderful, yet easy read and I truly could not put it down!
