I’ve been caught up in watching the Olympics lately with good reason — there are so many great moments. So many stories of athletes who have trained hard, dreamed big and put all their energy towards reaching their goals.
I’m not an Olympic athlete in any measure, however I can identify with them because I too have been working hard to create change and growth in my life. Last Friday, I left my full time job to take the next step towards living my dream. It was a scary step to take, but with the support of my adorable husband Jim, my family and friends and Pam from retrorenovation.com, I feel confident that I can achieve my goals. Instead of working for one boss, one company full time like I was up until Friday, I’ll now be continuing to work part time for Pam as a contributing blogger and graphic designer, part time for other clients as a graphic designer, part time for myself working to secure more jobs and on this blog and working to build up my Esty shop.
I know it will be hard work. It won’t pay what my comfortable old full time job would have right away, but there is unlimited potential for success, growth and happiness. I’m excited to hold the reins of my success. I can take myself as far as I can dream.
When I wake up Monday morning, my routine will be different, my commute much shorter, my coworker will be furry (and begging for a walk) and I will be smiling because, though I’m not at the medal podium, I’ve set goals, made plans and am ready to do the work to get me there, someday.
