David dabbles with art, he loves to write, and he is finding my way back towards his childhood dreams. #author http://goo.gl/uOzT60 #blogger http://goo.gl/dYHFTD
At a very early age, I enjoyed writing fiction. I wrote mysteries, action, and drama; I was never into writing romance, at the time. My hobby also involved drawing comic book art; I loved completing pencil illustrations based on some of my favorite comic book characters. I decided that creating comic books was my dream job until I shared my desire with my mother who told me that it was not a real job. That response left me feeling devastated. I never liked confrontation therefore, I never challenged my parents viewpoint of my place in life; this was my turning point and moment of regret.
I left home at the age of eighteen by joining the military. I was not happy with my duties and after nearly nine years of service, I left the military without knowing what I wanted to do in life. This situation plagued me for decades as I moved on from one employment to the next. I convinced myself to have a career in some form of corporate life and no matter how hard I worked for success, everything I touched became stagnant; every morning I woke up feeling demotivated and frustrated. I keep returning to that moment in time, wondering, if I challenged my mother’s comment and pursued my interest then would I have a life of fulfillment. Who knows?
