A lot of people dream about quitting their job. Most of us in the forty hour a week crunch that is. I know for me, I thought at least once a day, “I should quit this job and pursue my passion.”
But like most people, it remained a thought in my head that I wouldn’t dare actually act upon. Would I?
Not because I dont like my job, or that there aren’t moments in the day that make me smile and feel like I’m being a good working bee.
But what I did today, was let that little voice in my head, that had been whispering to me for years now, finally voice it’s opinion.
Today, I stepped out on faith. Today, I resigned from my job that I had been at for two full years now. Today, I decided that I was no longer going to live by a schedule someone else set for me.
When you are a creative soul, the worst type of job you can hold is a desk job. Your thoughts overwhelm you daily because your constantly creating in your mind. So I have literally tortured myself daily having to sit and work everyday and not have time to attend to my creativity.
But it’s a scary thing to quit your job. Most people don’t want to quit their jobs out of fear of the financial burden it may bring to them. Some people don’t have a back up plan or dont have a passion that they could pursue to replace there income.
I know for me I just couldn’t imagine leaving such a good job with such good benefits. But does it benefit my soul to live like a caged bird wanting to fly everyday?
So today, on October 3rd, 2019, exactly 29 years after the day I was born, I stepped out on faith and quit my full time job to pursue my passion full time.
This is stepping out on faith. This is me knowing that, no matter how hard life gets, I will never spend another day giving more time or energy into anything but what drives my passion.
And I know some of you might think I’m crazy or think what will she do now? But just know I will be ok.
The same God that provided for me yesterday, will provide for me today a and forever more.
What I know for sure is, ill be spending a lot more time on my blog. So get ready my readers, you are about to get the full time creative Val.
