Creative Living, is it Possible?

I came to a realisation recently. I am simply not made for a 9 to 5 office job. I find myself going stir crazy caught up in the daily humdrum of office life.

At first I thought it was the work hours that was putting me off. Maybe it is. I think the real thing that makes me go bonkers is the lack of creativity. Sure, I can come up with new business strategies or present information in exciting ways, but it just isn’t what I’m after.

I want to be surrounded by colour and inspiration. I want to work with ideas and get lost in projects that are full of arts and crafts.

But the problem is, I also want to earn enough money for my family to live comfortably.

I have looked at different career paths but can’t find one for me. I think I’d prefer a lot of odd jobs here and there. I don’t really want to go back to permanent work.

Can I have my cake and eat it?

  1. I think if you keep searching, you may eventually find what you are after. Perhaps you should consider something like being a preschool teacher. Young kids love colours, they are spontaneous, unpredictable and still very creative.
