Since making the decision to leave my traditional job and create what I want to do with the rest of my life, it has been a journey. Where do I want to go, what do I want to do when I get there, and how can I make it happen while continuing to maintain my current life and job are just a few of the things I think about pretty much every day.
Then there is the business component. I’m a creative, I’m all about the heart and soul of a company not the nuts and bolts and I stress a lot about that area. That’s a lot to weigh and consider, not to mention the pressure I put on myself to ensure I am making the ‘right’ choices. So I’ve had to turn to alternative ways to make these decisions that have always crippled me. Instead of my usual pro and con list, I am now looking inward for the answers.
I recently felt myself buzzing with excitement when I began following a specific category of accounts while working to grow my social media presence. I took note of the sensation coursing through my body, recognized it and then it hit me! I thought to myself, I must be going in the right direction. I felt like I hit the jackpot and all I had to do was listen to what my body was telling me. That would have never occurred to me a few years ago.
I always hear people say ‘you have all the answers, they are inside you’ but I’ve never really known what that meant… until now. Now it is painfully obvious! How could I not listen to the intuition and feelings bubbling up inside me? Perhaps they weren’t as strong because I wasn’t following my true path, or maybe I was suppressing them because I wasn’t ready. I guess it doesn’t really matter what happened in the past because I am at the dawn of a new day. I am filled with excitement, energy and passion to bring my unique talents to the table to create something that will make people take notice. I don’t want to change the world, but I do want to share the stories of the people that are…. so stay tuned. This woman is about to make her mark.
