It seems as if I’m in a constant Catch-22 situation. The desire, the want, the non-stop lust of creating memories in my 20’s have been enthralling me on a daily basis. But therein lies the dilemma - To plan my next euro-trip, to plan my trip to Coachella, to rage endlessly at EDC all requires money. And that’s where I’m stuck in the endless 9-5 grind (might as well be called the 24/7 grind).
But I recently stumbled upon a quote by Oprah, in which it states, “Do what you HAVE to do in order to do things you WANT to do.” That hit me hard like a ton of rocks plummeting inside my stomach. Here’s a woman, who overcame so many obstacles in which the odds stacked against her like no other, decided to stick her middle finger to all the challenges that she faced and became a billionaire with all that she has been through.
Basically, what I’m trying to sum up is that I have to nut up or shut up at this point. The grind may cause a strain of my mental health from time to time, but it will all be worth it in the end, where I can reap the fruits of my labor.
