It’s a pleasure and will always be to see your views and comments on my blog. It will surely bring joy to my heart and a smile on my face.
When I was a kid, I just dreamt of being a career-driven woman who can provide for the needs, perhaps wants, of my family or loved one.
I must say when it comes to my career, I was already a stable young lady at the age of 22. I was happy; I can provide to my family. It was a dream come true. But, Little did I know that all of those were lies. I thought I ‘m satisfied enough to pursue my career. Enough to get paid and work hard every day. Until one day, I woke up empty. It felt like I don’t know myself and the path that I was going. I no longer know my goals and how to reach them. I’m afraid to admit that I’m lost. The once happy thought was gone. All of a sudden, I lose my appetite in striving and in dreaming.
It was then I started from scratch. I looked back at who I was and what I want to be. One afternoon, I saw a copy of our publication in high school, and I remember what I used to do, I want to write. I want to show my thoughts and opinion in the right way. I want to make articles that are easy to read and can relate to every reader.
I want to show my heart, tell my thoughts, and express myself as if I’m the one who’ll be reading it in a different shoe.
Funny though. I don’t even know where to start with the mere fact that I was still employed. I’m afraid to leap of faith. I’m between choosing to stay or moving out of my comfort zone. I doubted myself because I’m not used to taking a risk. So I continued my day as usual. But as the day passed by, even if how I tried, I can’t stop thinking of “what ifs” in my head.
Finally, I decided to quit my job, which I thought I am not able to do so. I stopped all the “I thoughts” and started to do all the “I will”; I’ve never been as eager and as confident as this, I began to do the things I ever wanted! Well, I’m still in the process of reaching my dream, but I believe sooner or later, I’ll be there.
I’ve seen a book that truly inspires me. It entitled How to turn your Passion into Profit. I have read a few of its pages and haven’t finished it yet. But with the title itself, I know that you already have the idea.
Leap of faith is crucial; taking the risk is a bit difficult, but what matters most is at the end of the day, you won’t regret the things you did and decided to do.
Til my next thoughts,
