…that I gave myself to not go for a nursing/medical field degree, I think it might be something I am actually going to pursue.
Art is my thing. And it will always be. But that is something that I can always do on the side and work on without the use of “classes” and need a degree on…yet. At least when I know I am helping people as a nurse (plus earning the money), I can always pursue my artsy stuff on the side. Always. If I considered to do business with my art on the side, I can gladly do that afterwards. Because anyways there is just too many forms of art that I want to explore, and I don’t think taking classes can do that for me. And I can’t just keep standing and sitting here waiting, just thinking, of what I really want without really moving.
You might think from what it sounds like, that I ended up considering nursing just for the money. To be honest, it kinda was at first. But then, it hit me. Being a nurse wasn’t exactly what me and my parents seem to see it as. They saw it as being a doctor, who always deals with blood, surgeries, and things like that. Lol, but no. I learned from co-researching with my boyfriend about it that…it’s just as broad as I have always known the art field to be.
I think of art and I see many different things. Other people think of art and all they really mention is drawings and paintings. But art is much more than that. There is also things like designing, digital artwork, animation, crafts such as scrapbooking, DIY-work, collages, etc. It’s the same for nursing.
Some people might look at this and think, “Well, duh.” Well I’m sorry and I admit it, but I was raised in a box, and it’s just now that I really feel like I am growing up and actually learning things. Things outside of my comfort zone, my “box,” my home…the outside world.
Anyways, since I was little, I always told myself that I felt as though my purpose on this planet was to make a difference. One person at a time. Helping people. Healing people. Being there for those in need and offering advice and support when I can. And if not making an impact or beneficial influence with art (which with art of course I still can), then this is a great career that’s a start. I already feel partially fulfilled just thinking about it.
I just wish I could be there already. Helping people. & all.
"They say it can take you years after high school to find out what you really want to do with yourself. & I think I’ve found it.” Finally.
Maybe this was the reason I was on an art hiatus for so long? Everything happens for a reason, right?
Maybe I needed all that time to figure this out.
Because now I feel inspired to go back.
