Take the Risks, Dream Big & Dive In

One year ago, I thought I had discovered my path. I had started a business with my friends, a product and a brand that was intended to draw people closer to their passions and pull them away from doing anything in their life they didn't love. 

One new 9 to 5 job and a new boyfriend later, I found myself moving on from the business, acknowledging that the business felt out of alignment with what I truly desired and my vision for where things were going. Walking away from this passion project of mine felt like I was giving up the past 2 years of my life and something that creative part of my soul had built, but it was right at the time and while I have moments of regret, I'm happy knowing that it shaped my current adventures and everything in my life around me today. 

But I've felt stuck. Missing that part of myself that was learning something new, inspired to try something different. Waking up an hour early every day to watch sections of this series and take notes truly helped pull a layer off me, that layer really being "I can't" or "I don't know how." 

This class helped me discover that I've been hiding this whole time. Hiding behind the things I "think" I cannot do. Which is just totally and entirely untrue. 

So, my next step is: 

  • Write more. I'd love to write a children's book, merging my love for kids, creativity and inspiring people. I have an idea, and I started a rough draft, but of course that other side of me keeps qualifying or negating what I have done. So, I'm going to try and meet with a published author. Someone who can provide insight on the creative process. 
  • I committ and pledge to be corageous in all that I do. I'll dare to take risks and stop hiding behind the things I think I'm unqualified to do. I'm going to take a DEEP BREATH and dive in.
  • Remember that things don't come easy, that challenge is a sign that you're tapping into something big. 
  • Take risks and discover the unexpected. AKA be PRESENT. Constantly attaching myself to technology and monotony creates a layer of passiveness and and lack of curiousity. I'm going to keep my eyes open, and pay attention to all the little clues my mind is collecting whether I'm concious of it or not. 
  • Lastly, be audacious and remember that we're all amazing, bright, vibrant individuals fully capable of creating miracles. Believing that is half the battle.
