I Don't Care What Nobody Says,

I'm gonna follow my dreams. So they're big-- SO WHAT! I'm only on this Earth once, why would I waste my time doing things I don't believe in? (yolo, you know)
I've been silent for a while. I quit my new job that I was so excited about. They did some things that I don't think is right and I didn't want to devote my time to something that goes against my morals. It was really hard for me to quit, I've never quit anything in my life, but I knew that I had to do it, the longer I stayed, the worse it would get. I was digging a hole and I had to get out before it was too deep to reach the edges.
I watched Talahina Sky: The Story of Kings Of Leon yesterday and it really opened my mind. The band started as two brothers wanting to make some music and ended with 3 brothers and a cousin, some of whom never even played musically before, and bam! They made more than music, they made magic and became international sensations almost over night.
I live in a small town and its hard to imagine leaving everything I know to follow my dreams, but sometimes you have to leave your comfort zone in order to move forward with your life. After I quit my job I decided I would just work in my small town, selling coffee or mixing paint at local shops. I could walk to work and would still make enough money to buy some things and make some things. This way of thinking has been resonating with me a lot these past two weeks. Talahina Sky really challenged this way of thinking within me. Why would I go to school for years learning specialised knowledge like textile properties and complex German pattern drafting, if I was going to work at a paint store? It doesn't add up. If four friends can become international rockstars out of a small town in Tennessee with no musical background, then I can sure has heck make it with what I have under my belt. I'm bigger than my small town.

I'm following my dreams, any advice?
