Three years ago, I was laid off from my first “dream” job. I was working at a magazine in Atlanta.
Three weeks ago, I put my two-week notice in at my second “dream” job. I was working through a mental health agency as a school therapist.
I am one person with two passions – writing and helping others. However, neither “dream” job left me feeling fulfilled. So, where do I go from here?… Truth is, I don’t know.
What I do know is – wherever I go and whatever I do, I want to be happy. I am in search of a way to fulfill both of my passions, and I won’t settle!
I came across a quote today that read:
“Life is too short to wake up with regrets.
Love the people who treat you right.
Forget about the ones who don’t.
Believe everything happens for a reason.
If you get a second chance, grab it with both hands.
If it changes your life, let it.
Nobody said life would be easy.
They just promised it would be worth it.”
Change can be scary, but it’s good for growth. Every day I wake up is another chance to fulfill my passions.
At this point, I don’t know what lies ahead. I do believe that there’s a reason for me being in this position at this point in my life though. My goal is to stay positive, focused, and motivated.
This… is just another part of my journey; another chapter in my book. Stay tuned.
