Have you ever had to close a door on a chapter in your life and you weren’t 100% sure you were ready? You knew it was time and you knew you had to, but there was that nagging feeling in the back of your mind.
Yesterday, I closed a door on one of the longest chapters of my life. For the past 16 years, I have worked at least two jobs pretty much the entire time. There were a few gaps in there where I have tried other things, like selling Younique makeup and working booths for The Rustic Pony.
For the past year, even with a full time job, I was still working a part-time job. That part time job meant putting in 25 – 30 hours a week. I could get into how hard it is in this society to live on a single income, raise a child, and put yourself through school, but I am not. I know that I haven’t made the best financial decisions along the way either.
But what I am going to tell you is how scary it is to end something you are so familiar with. Even when you know you don’t need that thing anymore, even when doing that thing drives you absolutely crazy at times, even when you know that thing is taking time away from the things that really bring you joy in your life. It is still scary. It is scary leaving something guaranteed. It is scary walking into the unknown. But it is also very brave.
The past eight months, I have had some many amazing doors open for me. It took God/The Universe opening several doors for me to see the bigger picture. It took getting uncomfortable and not being afraid to take a chance. Now, I already had some rock solid people in my life, that have changed the directory of my life all together. But the past eight months, I have had some of the most amazing people join my circle. People who believe in me, congratulate me, remind me how much of a rockstar I am, and push me daily on getting out of my comfort zone. Those are the people that are going to make this transition so much easier.
I knew 2023 was going to be amazing and let me tell you, it is far better than anything I have imagined so far. Keep having faith, keep chasing your dreams, you never know where your path might lead.
So here is to the unknown, here is to the future, here is to the next big step. I can’t wait to see what is in store for me.
Share some love, we could all use a little more love
