Got a Tip?
ive months ago, I left a very high paying job with excellent benefits and flexibility to pursue my dream job. The day of my resignation, I did not know what my dream career was but I knew what it was not. I spent the summer mulling over the things I love to do as oppose to the things I can do. My ideal career forged in my mind as a writer, in college and university I wrote part-time to supplement my income. Throughout the past 20 years, I maintained a writing interest and a journal. Over the years I wrote proposals, letters to the editors, I wrote to myself, I wrote gratitude journals. In the past couple of years, writing and journaling kept my sanity as I went through changes at work.
So there I sat on the first day of school, scared to death that I made the hugest mistake ever. The biggest was the financial strain on the family but I am an optimist know my choice was right. My career change had nothing to do with money or prestige; I wanted something of substance to attach myself. I want a career I love and loves me. Therefore, in a span of a couple hours I created a website blog, Link and began sharing my stories with others. The joy and love I derive from it is enormous.
Therefore, without knowing what, when or how I began my ideal career as a writer. A work in progress and continuing to evolve each day I smile looking back at the past few years of inner conflict, which brought me here. It is worth every sleepless night. My favorite quote to end is: "You can do anything you want all you have to do is set your mind to it” Tionores 1987.
