Did you know I have a safety net? My safety net is a job. A job that others would consider a great job. You know, with great pay, great benefits and my mom would argue a pension too.
But when I am at work I feel claustrophobic, anxious and sad. When I think about work I feel the same. Luckily I only have to work 25 hours a week but those hours feel like they never end.
The plan is to eventually leave that safety net and leap but it’s so scary. I have been planning to do this for years and I don’t know if I will ever have the guts to do it.
The good news is business is going well. I have loads of projects lined up and I have made more this year than I did all of last year that’s good right?
I wonder what it will take for me to leap. Maybe I need a push. Sometimes it feels like people around me don’t understand why I would want to do something so crazy. Is it really crazy?
I’m sure you have noticed my business is growing into many different things. Wedding invitation designer, photographer, graphic designer, photo editor, web designer and even some event design it has been such an interesting ride and I love the variety and growth. There is so much I still want to learn and do.
I’m going to keep working hard and being too busy for a while and hopefully someday I will be free falling and who knows maybe I’ll fly.
It all feels like I did in the picture below in Chicago’s Willis Tower so scary but yet I felt so alive and happy that I pushed through the fear and stood on the glass floor.
Have any of you taken the leap? Or is something holding you back too?
I’ll post more on our trip to Chicago later.
