I want you all to check out this girl's blog. She posted about this very topic; following your dreams! https://madssmaee.wordpress.com/2015/12/10/15-things-i-learned-in-2015-pursue-your-passion/
I went through something similar to Madi! In high school, I was "known" as someone good at math and science. I mean, I did tutor people in math. I knew that this would be my future. Let's be real, Calculus was my favorite class!! I could be an engineer, right? It makes a ton of money, right? So, that's what I settled on. (Settled is never a good word when it has to do with your future!!)
I was so caught up in doing what everyone else was doing. I knew I had to just keep pushing myself and really be financially stable. I don't know.. I just went with it.
THEN, ONE DAY IT CLICKED. I didn't want to be this person I always was. Every time I told somebody my major was "Chemical Engineering".. They were blown away and amazed! But, a little of my heart would die! This isn't even my personality. I don't have a mind that builds and connects pieces. I hate puzzles. I just knew engineering would be the wrong field. (Even though, I admire and applaud anyone doing engineering! We need you. So, thank you!)
Darn it. I was back at square one.
This will be continued tomorrow...... Sorry, that this has nothing to do with Christmas. I did go to the Temple lights tonight though and it was so beautiful! I love that everyone is in a good mood and so generous. Wonderful time to be alive! YAY!
