I while ago I posted a Q&A about myself, and there was a question asked about me and my dream job. After realizing. I mean really realizing that life is short, my ultimate goal is to follow just that. My dream. I am so capable, and talented if I do say so myself. Its just about me getting out of my own way sometimes.
I recently was approached with a job offer out of the clear blue after being away from work for almost a year. Needless to say. I declined. Some people may think I am nuts, and almost crazy. But I want to be 100% happy in what I do, and get excited over work. I don’t want to just settle for money. I also am not one to act fast on certain opportunities no matter how great them seem even in regards to GIGS . What’s for me, is for me. And I don’t have a problem believing in that.
A major part of my decision came from my BFF. Mr. Styles. When you have a partner in life telling you “Babe, I want you to be happy. I want you to do what you love. I want you to come home happy after work.” That makes things so much easier when I know that I have the support from my better half. He could have easily said to me—You need to take that job. Or hinted that I should in a joking way. But never did he do it. He looked me in my eyes, told me to smile, and do what makes me happy.
A friend said to me. “I feel like turning down this job is like telling the universe that you are ready to stand up for what you are meant to do and will not stop for something that isn't related to the path you are meant to be on.” Darn right.
Either way. I’m on my way, down this journey….Here I go.
Have you been in this situation? Are you in it now? I cant be alone.
Lets chat it out.
