Jack of all Trades

Hey guys, I hope you all had a lovely weekend. I most certainly did!

For those of you who have noticed, my blog design has been changing every now and then for a couple of weeks now. I recently found myself with a bit more free time in my hands so I've been focusing more on the blog and thinking on ways to improve it. 

The reason for this post is I recall a friend of mine mentioning how one can decide to be a jack of all trades and end up being a master of none (as the popular saying goes). Now although I get the point behind the saying, I however do not necessarily agree with it. I am mostly referring to myself here so this may or may not be your view on the subject. 

I've chosen a particular career path which, to be honest I kinda found myself in but later on realized how much I actually love and enjoy it. I consider this to be what I've mastered or at least continue to learn and train myself in so that I can be the best at it. However, in my early days from university I worked in a completely different field (marketing) and I was really good at it too. Aside from that I have several other interests which I have always wanted to pursue, such as interior design, and which I probably will in the future even if it's only on a personal level. 

This made me realize something about myself, I have many diverse interests and being someone who loves a challenge, I usually like to try out these particular interests. Now I admit not all of them 'take', I mean lets be honest here, some I may abandon after a while but the ones I stick with? boy do they make me feel fulfilled! 

So this is my take, I strongly believe that you should do whatever it is that makes you happy, dabble in everything to your heart's content! Master what you love the most but do not at any point be restricted by it because trust me, if its something that you feel you love, it all comes together into making you the unique person that you are. 

Back to my ever-changing blog design (which inspired this post), I am trying to make it as much me as possible so please bare with in my trial runs and focus more on the content. I'm currently researching web designing because I would love to be able to do my own designing for this blog and have it reflect me (yes I know I can use a professional, specify what I want and still get results but for now I choose to do it myself so just let it go!).

Phew! It feels like I've been rambling on non-stop.

On a different subject, I came across these gorgeous babies over the weekend and I'm trying to figure out which one I like the most for my bedroom.

PS: My friend just started her own blog. It's quite a read! You can check her out here. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
