In June of this year, I quit my job. So trendy, right?
I quit my job to pursue my passion in writing [sinking in my chair of guilt]. I get mixed responses in sharing this fact. Some people say, wow good for you! Other people are polite but give me a look that screams, what does that even mean? Isn’t work, simply that? What are you seeking? That is so your generation.
But it is so much more than that.
I have a burning inside of me. Something calling me. I have taken off on this new trajectory and still am not totally sure where I’m headed. But I do know for sure that I’m on the right path. I am trying to find patience amidst the unknown, lack of schedule and foggy road ahead.
And in the process, I am traveling.
Just because. Just for adventure’s sake. And taking advantage of this unique time in my life where I don’t have a full-time job, or kids, or other elements that make ‘up and going’ more of a challenge. I am trying to relinquish my guilt and live life, in this moment.
Whatever your current situation is right now, own it with confidence. It’s yours.
