Clean house. Clean mind. That’s what everyone says. They say that life is easier and your mind can be free when your surroundings is clutter free. With “been there, done that” attitude, I must say it’s bullshit. I’ve become more exhausted with what I have, more stressed than I ever was, fatter and lazier than before.
We try to promote change and become someone better but we just end up being the worst parts of a new you. Although good things have come slowly, I am still as unhappy as ever and in a worse situation that I was before I decided to make a change.
You may want to make a change, but frequent that not, we change for the worse.
I had dreams when I was younger - dreams that slowly became reality and dreams I still aim to fulfil… but recently, I’ve realized that dreams change with time. I once loved the idea of Willy Wonka and his chocolate factory - that one day, I too will walk in his shoes. It is Ronald Dahl who inspired me to achieve all that I have. And despite all my dreams of becoming a confectioner or a chocolatier, my career goals changed - not because I was side tracked but, surprisingly by my awful experience with the food industry.
As wasteful as it may sound - I turned down an opportunity to work at Kraft Foods today. The world’s second largest food company. Although I feel some sort of emptiness and despair, it has made me realize that chasing a dream may take you to unexpected destinations - some you love, some you hate but it’s rarely ever predictable.
Chasing a dream will always get you somewhere and it is the most unexpected outcomes that will make you the happiest. Who would have thought I picked shit over food?
