I’ve never been much of a gambler, but I suppose everything has its time & place. My days left at my current job now have a definitive ending date, and I’m not quite sure where I’ll be landing afterwards – and I’m surprisingly okay with that (for now at least.)
For the past two years, I’ve felt like I was kind of spinning my wheels. I have had a hard time committing to living creatively out of fear of failure, and have come to be a habitual toe-dipper in the risk-taking pool, never fully diving in.
With that being said, I really do believe all things happen for a reason. My time seemingly standing still has allowed me a great opportunity to grow. I have gotten to explore photography more than I ever anticipated, and I have learned a lot of little life lessons – about patience, self-reflection, the importance of family & friends, the power of positivity, and realizations about being a part of something bigger than myself.
So in the end what is this post about? It is about embracing the future. I’m not trying to delve into the freelance-full time life, I am just looking for a career that will better allow me to grow in the things that interest me (graphic design, photography, non-profit work, music, etc.) and allow me a bit more creative freedom. I am excited about this new journey, to becoming a happier and more whole person, surrounded and motivated by like-minded individuals. And perhaps most thrilling is the unpredictability of it all… where I’ll eventually end up, what new changes and challenges may lie ahead, and ultimately the outcome of whether it was all worth it.
