There’s been some news I’ve been meaning to share for a while now… it’s three little words I’ve been a bit afraid to fully accept, but now it’s time!
So… here it is… I’m going freelance! I am finally #takingtheleap and joining the growing movement of millennial freelancers once the new year comes around. 2014 is going to be life-changing, or at least I am determined to make it so. I’ve been waiting for what feels like forever to say those three little words, and it feels so, so right. I haven’t felt so sure of something since I was in my late teens, going to a show to interview a band for the very first time at Clutch Cargo in Pontiac, without a care in the world what anyone thought (past life, I’ll explain later… and the band was Good Charlotte).
While it’s super exciting, it’s oh so scary at the same time. If you can believe it… I’m about to turn 30 in just a couple of months and it’s starting to really make me think about what I need to be doing with my life. I don’t regret anything I’ve done or experienced along my journey thus far, but for sure have learned a thing or two along the way. I’ve met so many who have inspired me over the past couple of years to go down this unstable route. But I’m ready to be uncomfortable. To truly hustle. For myself, and a lifestyle I can feel good about. I know it’s the only way I can grow.
Freelancing was never a concept I was familiar with growing up, but have made so many friends who have taken this path in life – and you know what? It completely changed them and their perspectives – for the better. I’m ready to face any challenge that may present itself because I know it will only help me progress and figure out what my true passion is. I am ready, and can say it without an ounce of hesitation.
Since I graduated from college, I’ve followed to whole “9-5″ routine. Granted, I’ve worked with some pretty amazing companies and individuals – like, life-changing – but at the end of the day, I feel strangely unfulfilled… even after all these years – culminating to nearly 8 now, which is totally crazy to even think about. It’s hard for me to pinpoint my “unhappiness” and I know astrologically I’m forever bound to finding my ultimate calling – but I really feel that this is the first step.
Those who are close to me have learned about my new venture over the past several weeks, and the support has been truly overwhelming! I am so lucky to have all these amazing humans in my life, and I sincerely appreciate each and every one of you… (you know who you are!)
More details to come soon as they are solidified… but for now, I’m just excited to have all this off my chest, out in the open, and in The Universe. Phew! Anyway, cheers to new adventures and #takingtheleap!
