You will have your down days, and you will have your amazing days. That’s how life works. We’re social beings made with emotions. How we navigate around the world is how much power we want to give these emotions.
Emotions are exhausting to keep up with. They’re the instinctive feelings we get, and we can’t control it. Ever had the “what-am-I-doing-with-my-life, I-can’t-possibly-be-given-the-responsibility-to-take-care-of-myself, mom-why-is-this-happening” feeling? No? Me either… hahaha…
Point is, I realised I have this ‘instinctive’ feeling to do stuff. No, I’m not an entrepreneur, but I do have this drive to do things. That’s why we did the FinTech Conference. Working with a group of people who, at the end of the day, just wanted to produce something for the community, was extremely rewarding! Which is why you’ll never see me not doing something. Here are some photos of the event:
Emotions are good and it’s up to us how we want to use them. Sure thing, it’s hard to sometimes understand why we feel the way we do, and what we can do about it. But that’s the fun part. University, for me, cheesy as it is, is helping me figure out what I want to do and where I want to be, and most importantly; who I want to surround myself with. I always talk about being surrounded by like-minded people. This simply means I like being around the people who understand and motivate me. The people at these conferences and events understand what it means to be open-minded and in itself, this motivates me to do more events, meet new people, etc.
As one of the guest speakers spoke to me, she said to not let anything intimidate me; be it a job description or another person. How we control where we want to be, us how we want to control our emotions: be your own boss!
In any case, time moves by, and you can choose to make do or make the best out of it. Either way, keep moving forward.
