I know, I know, you’re reading the title thinking Melina, could you get any cheesier? If I were being honest here, I could prolly get loads cheesier, ask my friend Amanda, but that’s not the point of this post, and I can get super off track if I don’t get right to the point.
I have just gotten back from a production meeting for this new film my aunt is going to help film this week. While some would have found it beyond boring, I found it to be quite magical. I was in awe of all the people at this meeting. These were going to be the people helping the filming process in someway or another. The crazy part was that all the people didn’t even show up to the meeting!
Now I know what you’re thinking Melina, haven’t you ever seen the ending credits to a movie? I totally have, but it’s one thing to see those names on a screen and quite another thing to see so many passionate people before my very eyes. I saw these people and I thought, these people made it. They are making magic before our very eyes. They have a working job doing something they love. You can see how much they love it by the energy they give off, it’s infectious.
A few months ago, I wrote a post called Leaving Normal Behind, and it talks about the idea of me wanting to do whatever I want with my life without feeling the need/want to explain myself to anyone else.
I was feeling motivated when I wrote this post, but you know how things goes, as time passes, and mental health takes a toll one me, it’s been a little tough to stay at that level of motivation.
But, when I was at that meeting, surrounded by other people working hard to live their dreams, I felt reengergized. I realized, anything in life is possible. If you work hard and don’t stop trying, you will succeed at life.
I don’t know why I wanted to share this with you guys, but I guess because since this blog has become such a huge part of my life, I want to share my ups and downs. I like to be are honest and up front as I possibly can.
At that moment, when I was surrounded by people who are doing what they genuinely love, I realized that’s what I want out of life. I want to live somewhere, where I am genuinely happy, surrounded by people who genuniely care about me, doing a job that I love. While I have a few ideas of what that can be, that meeting gave me the motivation to keep moving forward. Something just clicked, and because of it, I’m ready to keep working hard in order to reach my dreams.
What are you all working towards? Let me know in the comments below! I look forward to reading what you all have to say. Have a wonderful day/night. Sending you all love, strength and positivity!
