My Journey to Contentment Using The Law of Attraction

     As I had stated in my second post of this year, "Not All Who Wander Are Lost?", being in a typical 9-5 lifestyle isn't living but merely existing.  The only positive benefits, I see, that I get out of it is a steady paycheck, health insurance, and 401K.  This equals stability, right?  It might make my life a little bit more stable currently, but is it fulfilling?  You know, that feeling of living without regrets.....that you have experienced and done everything you wanted to do in a lifetime.  I am predicting that if I stay on this "stable" path for the next 33 years (retirement age) with all the physically taxing jobs that go into my current position, I might not be well enough to enjoy the golden years but will be seeing doctors and filling my cabinet with a whole plethora of medications.  That's if I am not in a home.  So the way I see it is the best time to do what I want to do is NOW. 
      A couple of days ago I celebrated my 34th birthday.  That means that I have been in the workforce for almost 20 years having many jobs in many fields and not one I would consider fulfilling.  I'm the type of person that if I don't like something I change it.  In other words, in this case of not liking a job, I quit and change my focus and interest to something else.  The reasons for quitting would stem from very little pay, not being able to get/afford health insurance, to being in  very toxic environment. 
      This time I've decided to use my current job, which does give me stability of decent pay and health insurance (not so much of a toxic-free environment) and use it as a stepping stone to something better.  Not so much in the grocery field (which I am in) but to something that is designed for my introverted, sensitive, creative personality.  My grocery job is giving me the financial support to pursue my passions. 
      So I've decided that 34 will be my year to sew, cultivate, and watch my passions grow.  It will be used as something to look forward to at the end of a hellish day/week; a sanctuary.......a place to lose myself.  You drop a stone in the water and watch a ripple effect take action.  That is basically what the law of attraction is like.  The ripples are attracted to the stone that caused them to take action when it was dropped in the water.  When you open up and share what you are truly passionate about and wait, opportunities and like minded people start presenting themselves to you.  So down below I am going to list the passions I want to pursue and steps I am going to do to make it happen. 
  1. Writing:  I have been writing since I was really little (poems and short stories, even a play or two).  Some of my poems have even been published in  The National Library of Poetry.  But the good chunk of my creative writing took place between the ages of 9 and 19.  So my skills are a bit rusty.  What to do about it? Journal, play with words, images, feelings to come up with poetry.  Use my blog as a platform.  Take a creative writing course at my local community college to help dust off the cobwebs. 
  2. Entrepreneurship: This is somewhat tied into the first passion, writing.  I have always admired people who have used their life experiences, trials, tribulations, and achievements to help others.  So, I am inspired to do the same by 1. use my blog as a platform 2.  start a YouTube channel (especially when there are a lot of teens and 20 somethings and not enough of people my age to talk about what life is like, life hacks, self-betterment, etc.).  3.  Write an e-book.
  3. Explore more on veganism:  I have been a vegan for 6 months now.  I've always been a lover of fruits and veggies all my life.  My digestion had not been great and am lactose intolerant to begin with.  So, I decided to omit all animal products from my diet and live solely on plant-based whole foods.  The health benefits are amazing: clear skin, long strong hair, strong nails, not to mention a regular digestive track.  The health benefits are great but I want to delve more into the ethical benefits of veganism.  Such as, go to anti-animal cruelty rallies, meet-ups, spread awareness what animals have to go through in order to end up on our plates, or out backs, or our faces.  YouTube and my blog are two platforms I can use. 
  4. Travel: I will be renewing my passport pretty soon.  Seeing that a passport is good for ten years I want to fill up as many pages in it as possible.  I do know the first place I will be traveling to is Belleville, Ontario.  This is where my paternal grandparents and my uncle lived.  I'm basically going there to check up on their final resting spots (haven't been since my grandmother's funeral 10 years ago), do some reminiscing, and check out some new places.  Maybe even take the train into Toronto for the day.  Other places I want to see is Dublin, Ireland, Oslo, Norway, Salzburg, Austria, and Cavendish, Prince Edward Island to see Anne Shirley's beloved Green Gables (I'm a huge fan of Lucy Maude Montgomery's Anne of Green Gables series). 
As Rene Descartes, French mathematician and philosopher, would say, "I think therefore I am".  Change your mindset.  Start doing what you want to do and the rest will follow.  Start doing things as if you already know you have it.  Make your future your present.  Without a dream there is not reality.  Remember that.
