Some of you may not know that I have a day job as a personal assistant. It involves a wide range of tasks that vary from day to day. One day I will post jobs for free to ensure that the boss will have all the staff he needs for big events, other days I might shuttle potential clients around. It is never too demanding, and there are no worries to bring home at the end of the day. Overall my role as a personal assistant is a rather stress free position, and it allows me to daydream about what I will do with my free time after work. From what I hear from my mates, this is not at all uncommon, but in my case some might say it is a poor use of time, considering what I wish will happen.
And this brings me to the gist of this blog, you see in some of those spare moments at work where my mind wanders I have taken to hoping that I will come across someone looking to employ a driftwood designer. Sure, it is kind of far fetched, but it could happen I suppose. I could do a search for jobs, and find that a new café is being set up, and they want it to have a beach theme. And sure enough, that calls for driftwood galore. Or maybe, just maybe, a new hotel is being launched and the owners want all of the lobby furniture to be made of driftwood.
I guess the whole point of a daydream is to aspire for something to happen that is rather unlikely. And the reality of it is, as long as I continue to hope and dream anything remains possible. The trick is to stay focused on making a go of it, and to make time to participate in the things you love to do most no matter if there is a big financial pay off, or just an enjoyable afternoon filled with driftwood.
