Moving Into the Unknown: Following My Truth
Hi everyone! It has been quite some time since I wrote my last blog post. I have had a lot going on and my focus was needed elsewhere. My life has changed dramatically over the past year. I started to feel extreme discontent in my profession and workplace, knowing it was time to make a change. I took a leap and decided to go back to school to pursue something that I knew would allow me to lead a life that I desired.
I wanted freedom and to be the owner of my time. I wanted to be involved in things that I had control over and could be all in. I wanted to directly impact people and work with them to create something. So I took a chance and dove into web development. School brought all sorts of joy back to the surface for me because I was doing something solely for myself. I was the sole driver of my progress! It was such an incredible feeling. I also met some amazing people that I am still working with and they continue to help me grow.
I quit my job at the beginning of April and have not looked back. Did I have everything planned out? No. I just took the risk because I knew I had to at some point. Waiting was just prolonging unhappiness and not following my truth. Since quitting, I have not looked back or regretted my decision. It was absolutely correct for me! I feel more like myself than I have for the last five years.
Sure, it was scary (and still is at times) that I am wading in the unknown. I am fully immersed in unknown territory. This entire experience is full of learning but joy as well. I own my time and my direction. It is so fulfilling. So, I am here to say to take the leap. Do something that scares you and do not stay in a situation that you do not enjoy. Life is incredibly fleeting.
P.S. I am freelance web developer and if you would like to work with me, please check out my Services page. 🙂 I would love to help take your business to the next level.
