I've been there and I get it!
Exhausted, mentally and physically, from another long day at work. I remember I was sitting in my car, getting ready to go to my nail appointment when I had this overwhelming feeling to cry. Before I knew it, tears were running down my face and no, it wasn't that time of month either. I didn’t know why I felt this way, I couldn’t explain where it came from, but all I knew was that this moment was long overdue.
It dawned on me that I was utterly unhappy and disappointed at myself – for settling. I was working a 9-to-5 that I didn't really care for and I was missing out on great opportunities to live the life I wanted because I had decided to choose the safe route. I realized then and there that I had to change or be miserable for the rest of my life. The next day, I turned in my two week’s notice – without a backup plan, without a savings account and without looking back.
Today, I wake up with a happy heart knowing I am doing what I love and am finally working towards my dreams, not someone else’s. From the day I quit to today, nothing in this journey has been easy and for that, I am thankful. Everything I've learned so far, the good and the bad, are necessary so that I can help you on your journey.
