We live in a society that has rules and regulations, but you do not have to buy into it to be you, by passing anyone’s thoughts except your own is healthy, when doing crafts or any form of work restoring old cars, collecting coins etc etc.
It’s amazing how everyone has a degree today? nothing beats hands on experience, the real world outside University can be a whole new ball game. Do not be intimidated by a graduate, if you know your subject it’s cool.
Most of the 20th century icons had no such degree and did ok? and some are household names, stay focused with an open mind and above all passion, if you love the subject it’s a dream that can become reality.
Look At Me sums up our world today, fine but will it last? being famous is ok ?but how long does it last 6 months? or are you another xfactor winner who has a short fame time scale? the ones that really last are the talented ones, they stay the course.
Be brave and go for it inspiration is a great thing, I have many friends who have achieved a lot most came from council houses, now that is somewhat frowned upon? it’s not from where you came it’s where your that counts.
Some are millionaires, the nicest hardworking people who know what it takes to make it not given because of a certain type of background. Eton Mess is an ice cream, but it could describe the current political climate for mess? lol lol.
Gather round people who share your passion, or even do the same be it stamp collecting, bikes, cars or Biscuit Tin Collectors learn together. The most weird collector I knew was one who collected vintage Gas Cookers, what ever floats your boat.
Some of the nicest people are you and I ordinary joe’s, never be ashamed of your background, it’s part of you and your story it makes the rewards more interesting believe me.
The trouble is when your rich you can have anything you want? does this make it boring? I would guess so because striving for things and getting them is so much more interesting you appreciate things more if they are in short supply. The Beatles said Money “can’t Buy You Love”
Take little notice of the net you will always get the followers because it’s money or their job,social connections are fine, but do not let that be an ambition to fit in your a special individual remain so.
I wanted to write things for ages, now I have written a book, and I went from one thing to another you can too. Look how many famous people have various careers, Sandie Shaw the singer became a councillor, and Mental health advocate to the showbiz world.
Kim Novak the actress became a painter and a mighty fine one, perhaps her bipolar was a help in being creative? Ginger Rogers dancer and actress another good painter, art comes in many forms on stage, in films and on canvas. Laurel And hardy were a good example of fame and fortune, I don’t think they had any degrees? but when you as funny as them you don’t need one! Stan was in the phone book in the 60’s, and often answered phone calls to his fans, what a way to go it makes life nicer for all actors and fans alike.
You can do it even when you don’t B&Q it.
