When I was a little kid, I always held my pencil the “wrong” way. I would very much like to know who invented the “correct” way to hold a pencil, but that doesn’t matter. What matters is that I didn’t follow the rules. What matters is that, to this day, I still hold my pencil that way — and, to me, there is nothing wrong about it.
Why am I telling you this? Because I have a feeling that you’re a lot like me. I have a feeling that you don’t like the idea of following a rule just because society says that “everyone does this.” I have a feeling that something inside of you screams to be set free. Something inside of you KNOWS that you’re not reaching your full potential. And why are you not reaching it? Because you’re allowing yourself to be put in a box, labeled, and set aside. I’m here to tell you that YOU DON’T HAVE TO LIVE LIKE THIS.
That creative spirit inside of you was MADE TO SOAR. You were meant for so much more than you could ever imagine. Forget about being qualified and educated — forget about fitting in. FORGET ABOUT IT. Only dead fish go with the flow. (I didn’t make that up I stole it from someone but it’s cute, isn’t it??) I believe that you CAN chase your dreams — you just need a push in the right direction.
And that’s what I’m here for. My name is Abbie Emmons and I help creative, multi-talented people chase their dreams by making a living doing something they love. This blog focuses on inspiration, productivity, and the tools you will need to be a free spirit in a world that wants to put you in a box. You don’t need a niche, you don’t need a college education, you don’t even need to fully understand what you’re doing. I lack all three of those things and look where I am! LIVING MY DREAM. I’m so excited to teach you how to do the same.
