Sometimes in life, you don’t know the answer but you do know that staying where you are isn’t fixing the problem. 

By now, if you’ve kept up with my other blog posts you know I am a dreamer. I set big goals, have high expectations, and reach for the stars in everything I do. I have a go-getter attitude and nothing is ever going to make me any different. Some may say it is how I am wired. 

I recently left my full time job, but that’s not the point of this post. The point is why I did that: to get back to who I am and what I want in life. I think what you want from your life can be ever changing, but I don’t think you should stop assessing and chasing after it. I made a leap because I knew life was incredibly too short to be miserable and dictated every single day. There’s a dream in my heart and it is fueled by passion, I could no longer let it sit there and dwindle. 

Chasing your dream can come with a lot of reward, but there has to be sacrifice too. That is something I am up for. The reward of building your own dream is far greater than the reward of building someone else’s dream. I guess what I am telling you is that it is okay to take the leap, it is okay to change your path, it is okay to go against the grain. After all, this is the one life you get to live and you have the power to write your own narrative. 

In the words of AJR, “These things take time. Mom and dad they have a good life. But what the hell am I gonna do with mine?”
