They tell us all that we must hustle
In any way we can.
Make more money, work and have a hustle on the side.
Put yourself out into the world,
Don’t waste the time that you are given
And most of all remember that
A person with no loud ambition
May as well be dead.
I swing between wanting to be a raging success and then ten minutes later I want nothing more than to never leave my house and just spend the rest of my life crocheting blankets and watching boxsets.
But society always seems to scream at us that we need to be hustling (whatever the fuck that might mean). I think that it involves putting yourself out there to make money and be that raging success that I sometimes want to be.
But does anyone actually know how one is supposed to put herself out there? Do I go to London and knock on doors? DO I become extremely vocal on Twitter? Or do I just keep plodding onwards and hope for that lucky break?
It seems even harder if you are a bit of a quiet and anxious person (hi there, that might be me) and I’m just becoming a little bit curious as to how I’m supposed to be this ambitious girl boss?
I don’t even think I really want to be a girl boss because my nervous disposition means that I need to take regular breaks. I’m thinking that once again, I don’t fit into one of those perfect boxes that we are forced to squeeze into.
At least Bridgerton has just been released on Netflix so I can just be unambitious on my sofa for the next few days.

You’re not alone. There’s a myth that we need to get ‘out there’ and push ahead. But that can be unhealthy. It’s much healthier, I think, to go at your own pace. You are making your mark in your way. That’s what matters.
Most definitely. We live in a world where we have to have everything now and there sometimes feels like there is no time to slow down and just enjoy life.

Conforming to societies Demands
To hustle and bustle make money is the number
One cause of the death of the soul
I agree, every time I think about climbing the ‘ladder’ I feel like a little piece of me is dying; a little piece of my freedom has just vanished.

The trick is to discover where you are the happiest then fight to stay there.
Chill. Do your own thing. And success for you will come. Don’t worry that it’s not the success as another imagines it for you. They are not you
