Every now and then I like to take a break from the prettiness and just talk about life. Because I know lots of things happen while planning a wedding. Not to mention, I’m always the one asking the questions I decided this year I want to let you guys in on what’s going on with me as well. On Saturday, March 21st it marked a year that I have been out of Corporate America. This has been one of the most challenging, scariest, craziest things I’ve ever done! However, looking back I wouldn’t change a thing at all. Image Source
I remember when we got the news that our jobs were being transferred to another state. I had been bored with what I was doing and this blog had been my only escape from my my unhappiness at work. But it was comfortable, I showed up and they paid me and we did this fiasco for years but even still I knew I wanted more for myself. However, I wasn’t where I wanted to be financially…I needed more time. All these different crazy questions went through my head…Should I just get another job and do this over again? Even with all those questions there was always a voice that kept saying, “Take a chance on yourself.”
It was never perfect, and by all means I shouldn’t have made it this far, but I did! I’ve been able to follow my heart and embark upon a career in the travel & wedding industries and I couldn’t be happier. Financially, I’ve made wayyyyy less than I’ve ever had. But I’ve learned that when you chase purpose and not money it’s NEVER going to be perfect. And you will certainly look crazy and people might even tell you that but JUST KEEP GOING! The last few weeks things have been lining up and people have been placed in my life and it has showed me that I’m going in the right direction and that the money will come. Blogging for a living is not a get rich quick type of thing, neither is working in the travel industry. Both take time and patience and you may have to dip and dab into doing other things while trying to pursue your passion…but you have to be ok with that. I’ve learned that living a life that allows me to be free and creative while being of service to others is what I want..and I’m going to continue to do what’s necessary to build the kind of life I want and need. What kind of life do you want? What action have you taken to bring that life into fruition?
