Life has a funny way of shaking things up. I’ll share a story with you all today. As you may know, I graduated from Oakland University in 2015. The only thing I knew at that point for a career choice was I wanted to be a writer for a living. Well, reality hit and it is very challenging to obtain that level of a lifestyle. So, as a typical college graduate, I got a corporate job.
At first, this job was highly exciting. I had set goals and I excelled at every one I had set. About 6 months into the job, I started disliking it. I don’t like sitting at a desk all day. I don’t like starring at a computer all day. I don’t like cars. I found myself becoming depressed. I was very greatful for the opportunity to have a job. However, I was not being fulfilled in my career.
I prayed and prayed and I was hired as a paraprofessional at a school. I enjoyed the children. I enjoyed hearing what they wanted to do in their life and helping them to stay motivated. However, I did not like teaching the kids. I guess I am not all the way mature in that aspect because, I have 0 patience and I hate repeating myself.
I decided enough was enough and it is time to find what I want out of life.
I quit my job and I relocated to Illinois to stay with my dad. I have decided to focus my attention on my writing and becoming a certified relationship coach (I have a obsession for how and why relationships do or don’t work).
You see, if we are not careful. We will find ourselves in a position where we are just existing and not living. Yes, we all have bills to pay and you need to make money to live. However, I’m a firm believer that we should be doing what we love. God grants us all with gifts and we should be doing them daily. When you do what you love, the money will come.
I’m not suggesting you quit your job and relocate because, that is a huge step! I have been planning to relocate for years and this was the right thing for me to do at this time in my life.
However, if you’re feeling unfulfilled in your current position, don’t panaic. You’re not alone. It’s time to shake up your comfort zone and discover what you really want to do in life.
You only get one life to live and you have to make it count!
Let me know what you think!
