This is a hard decision. This is a questionable decision. This is an exciting decision. You never know if you're going to be successful, but that's part of taking the leap. None of my best moments in life were easy moments. None of them.

It's been running across my mind for a while now but I decided I'm going to do it. I'm quitting my job to pursue my dream. I want to dedicate myself to my blog, to my coaching, to my freelancing, & most of all I need to dedicate some time to myself.

I feel like my life is passing by so quickly & I'm not living it. Days go by. Weeks go by. Months go by. And years ago by. The time goes by without too much to show for it. Am I really living or just going through the motions? My life feels robotic.

Wake up to the sound of my screeching alarm. Put on work clothes. Drive to work. Work, work, work, work, work. Drive home. Take off work clothes. Blog a bit. Make dinner. Relax for a few moments. Go to bed. Set my alarm. Do it all over again.

I live for weekends. I live for each 10-minute break so I can escape outside to work on my blog & business. I walk laps around the parking lot in an effort to inhale some fresh air, if only for a few moments. 

So, I wrote my resignation letter & handed it in today. My mom won't like it one bit. But she's not the one living my life. The naysayers are not the ones I'm trying to please. I'm trying this to please myself, to satisfy myself. I feel a need to explore the world, experience life, & learn more about everything including myself.


I want to write about it all. I want to take photos of it. I want to post about it. I want to share my knowledge. I want to coach people who are looking to do the same. A year from now I want memories, experiences, photos, poems, laughter, friendship, & authentic living.

This won't be easy & I don't have all the logistics figured out, but this is what I'm doing. I'm taking a leap of faith into the unknown & I'm going to work my ass off for it. Thank you for reading & thank you for following along. Things are going to get interesting! I hope you stay tuned.
