We’ve all had them. Those days when work feels like it’s closing in and if you don’t get some breathing space you’re going to rip your hair out and run naked through the streets screaming. Those days we can understand, the feelings come and go and before you know it life seems normal again. Then there are the days when you know it’s more than a case of the ‘Monday Blues.’ You feel stifled, you want to fly, but feel like your job is holding down your wings. You could just start looking for another job, but that would only pacify your restless feelings. Then you start thinking of what it would be like to just quit. Just walk in one morning, resignation letter in hand and the whole world at your feet. Maybe you have a plan for after you quit, maybe you don’t, but you do know that where you are isn’t where you should or want to be. Maybe you want to travel the world or become a teacher in a foreign country. Maybe you want to start a non-profit or finally pursue that acting career. Then reality and bills give us a swift kick in the butt and we push our dreams to the back burner, but what if we didn’t have to?

What if today was the day that you could drop everything to do anything that you wanted….what would you do?

    I’d be a fitness model. And win competition after competition after competition.

  • My life would consist of acting/performing and blogging.

  • Mazuba

    I would do a Pan African television show on music ,art ,fashion ,food etc and actually travel to all 54 countries experiencing their culture. I would also be a top PR in the African fashion industry and be a freelance journalist on the side.

  • I think now more than ever that it is more than acceptable to venture out and do your own thing. We live in a world where people like Snooki and Kim Kardashian are just famous for being as such. There are fashion bloggers and entertainment bloggers that don’t have a real 9-5 simply just their blog and their brand. Now I am not saying that any of these people aren’t business people but I am saying that you perfect your craft, whatever it may be, you can make it profitable. It just takes hard work and dedication. There is no reason you can’t have a full time job and a part time passion. Once you channel your passion correctly, it will start to make money and you can quit that 9-5 and be financially stable! It’s the American Dream! :)
