...“Realness” of a job is not determined by the amount of money you make or how fast you make it. It is not determined by how regular and predictable your job is. It is not determined by your guarantee of job security until retirement or death.
It is determined by what feels right to you. Don’t let your soul be eaten alive because you want to fit into society’s ideals.
So, to anyone who has ever been told to get a “real job”, I have great news for you…. it does not exist!
Keep doing what you are doing. If you feel it is time to shift gears please do so, but not because the society has told you so. But because you know deep down… that it is time for a change.
The fact that the future is unpredictable, might just be an opportunity to be more. To do more. To stretch your talents further. To explore who you are at your core. And if you can make a living while doing it — that is a win!
