As many of you that have been following my journey both on the blog and social media know, I quit my “day job” back in April to pursue self-employment. It has been crazy, exciting, overwhelming, incredible and downright scary, but everyday I wake-up knowing I get to do what I truly love.
When I started college (and blogging) self-employment started peeking more + more into my line of vision for a few different reasons.
The top three being:
- I wanted to be able to travel often.
- I wanted to be able to set my own hours to live a life I truly love (now I can catch that 9am yoga class or work at 10pm when my creative juices suddenly start flowing!)
- I wanted to be genuinely excited over the work I put out into the world.
Now that I’ve been on my own for about 5 months, all of those benefits + more have become my reality and I’m so grateful for every opportunity I’ve been awarded and I continue to be blown away by the amazing people I encounter in my day-to-day.
I’m not saying it’s easy, it’s by far one of the hardest things I’ve ever done, but it’s also the most rewarding and now that I’m here, I can’t imagine doing anything else.
I wanted to drop-in today and share this with you all in order to encourage you to live your dream life, whatever that may be.
It’s possible. You’re capable. You wouldn’t have been given a dream if you didn’t have the power to make it your reality.
Don’t forget to live your daydream.
