Leap

 

ImageI was recently working at a place that paid well, but it wasn’t what I loved, nor what I wanted to do. The money was steady, work was consistent, and the benefits were there. What I really want to do with my life is inconsistent, freelance, and no benefits. You can see the dilemma. In the past month few weeks I passed up three amazing opportunities doing what I wanted to do because of my commitment to the place that gave me a regular paycheck. I realized it was time to make a move. I had nothing lined up, but I knew that I needed to leave my job to pursue the career I was working towards.  I put in my two weeks notice and I started to worry about the future. I spoke with some friends and colleagues of my fear of the unknown as the days counted down. I wondered if I could take back my two weeks notice and stay, feeling that I wasn’t ready yet. My heart told me to be brave and I stuck it out.

 

On my last day of work I confirmed my first two freelance jobs.  I had an amazing opportunity to work with some of my colleagues who also work freelance and stay very busy. This was all the reassurance that I needed. I knew that I made the right choice. My future is uncertain and I know I need to be careful with what little money I saved, but I am optimistic. I took the leap of faith and hopefully this time next year I will report that it has been working well for me.

  1. Undeniably believe that which you stated.
    Your favorite justification appeared to be on the net the easiest thing to be aware of.
    I say to you, I definitely get irked while people think about worries that they plainly do not know
    about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out
    the whole thing without having side-effects , people can take a signal.
    Will likely be back to get more. Thanks
