I have had an exciting week this week as I sent off my final assignment to the British College of Journalism. I now appear to know how to be a freelance journalist. My diploma is in the post.
Now I have to decide how to use this qualification and get my work published. When will I have the time? Do I actually have the time to even think about it?
Writing is something I have always wanted to do. This blog has been and will continue to be an amazing platform where I can write about my life and things that are important to my family.
The thing is, I am impatient. I want to be that established career women now, and forget all the in between’s and the journey to success. But here’s the thing, those in between’s are what moulds people into being successful and those journeys are the key.
I am counting on the journey to teach me what I need to and want to know to enable me to turn a passion into a career.
So my thinking is this: I will have a few weeks to now enjoy Christmas after finishing my course. From January I will set aside time of a weekend to pitch ideas and stories to magazines and newspapers.
I hope that passion and determination is enough to keep me going. I never thought I would have the guts to chase this dream but I am here, chasing…and waiting with baited breath for the next step. I am stumbling around a little….but my eyes are wide open.
I just hope that Busy Working Mummy doesn’t become Too Busy To Enjoy Life Working Mummy and that I settle on a balance that suits me and my family.
So for now, I am enjoying working and having a nice balance of work and life. I know I have a lot of hard work to put in to get to where I truly want to get to. With the support of my husband, I hope I can get there.
I won’t give up. I might stop and reevaluate a few things along the way, but I will keep on going.
Have you ever chased your dreams? How have you kept yourself motivated through the ups and the downs?
