Darling, Know What You Don't Want?
I can't believe how quickly this year has flown by! I have to say, it's been a good one!
This has been a really special year for me and one of huge growth! Earlier this week I was thinking back at what life was like this time last year and the truth is, I was very unhappy.
I was working at a 9-5 that was sucking the life out of me (can you relate?!), I wasn't earning much, I didn't love the clients I was working with, and I felt like I wasn't living a life of purpose.
I knew something had to change.
And then it hit me, sometimes you have to try something out to know what you don't want. I never would have figured that out if I hadn't taken the position at my 9-5 because knowing what I didn't want lead me to thinking about the life I did want.
I knew I was craving a laptop lifestyle. I wanted the freedom to travel with my husband during the week, to create my own work schedule, to pick my own clients, and to create a brand that truly represented me.
After sharing how I felt with my husband last Christmas, we both decided it was time for me to quit my job. We made a timeline together and I realized that I'd have to make huge leaps to make my dreams happen.
It's funny how when you're willing to take a leap, a door opens. But I'll share more about this story in a training I'm creating especially with you in mind, Beth. You'll receive more information about that in the new year!
I'm glad I had the courage to take the leap last year. It's been an incredible year of coaching, building my business, and working with Success Coach, Emily Williams as Head of Creative over at I Heart My Life.
This year, I was able to lead a life of purpose and do work that I genuinely love.
Today, I just want to remind you to take control of you happiness. Make a plan and start doing more of what you love so you too can lead a life of purpose.
"Amazing things happen when you're having fun doing something you love."
