I did it! I finally quit my job after months of anticipation. Months of insomnia, of going back and forth making a dozens lists of pros and cons for staying…
No matter how I tried to silence that little voice in me, my time has come. It’s time to finally move on. To follow my life purpose: to be of service. To help people balance and reach their goals. Advertising was never meant to be long term, it was a stepping stone into something that was bigger than myself. An invisible force that’s been guiding me since my early memories. I thought I would be ready when the time comes and truth be told I was a lot more resistant than I anticipated.
Why was I fighting over this? Isn’t this part of the big master plan all along? Why is it so hard to leave? Because there was so much more to lose than before. Like a dear friend told me, I was in golden handcuffs: I had a good salary, benefits, amazing coworkers. But at the end of the day, something was missing. I always knew this was temporary but damn I’ve also put in so much hardwork to get to where I’m at. But I could no longer deny my calling, I’ve been ignoring it for a while and of course the universe will always find a way to relay it’s message to me. One way or another.
For me, the wake up call was insomnia. My heart would be racing in the middle of the night trying to get my attention and this little voice would pop up. There was no denying, I am at a crossroads. After months of fighting that voice I finally let go and surrendered. Guess what happened? Synchronicity. I started meeting and attracting so many people like me. My heart would race but out of excitement because THIS IS IT. People who want a heart-centered business, people who want to change the world, people that want to be of service to others. I’m slowly building my tribe. And you know what else is amazing? I can finally sleep again.
I know I have a long road ahead, I know there will be ups and downs like any other career. But I’m ready. I’m taking everything I’ve learned in the past couple of years with me, every step of the way. I thought I would be more terrified but I feel at peace, I can feel this energy bursting out of me. The uncertainty no longer scares me because I can see so many opportunities as well. I’m feeling grateful, blessed and excited.
To document this new journey, starting now I’m going to journal everyday. Follow me if you want to be a part of it!
So proud of how brave you are. You’re an inspiration. I can’t wait to follow your journey!
