Life on this side feels SO different - good different, but so different! I smile every morning that I wake up knowing I am finally in the place I have dreamed of for over 15 years. After a quick smile, I go through a small panic thinking about all of the things still left on my to-do list and the overwhelming sense that it is ALL on my shoulders. But I promise this place is good, really good in fact.
Today, as I was driving my kids to school, I actually relished in the thought of all that I have accomplished so far. My business isn’t even launched yet and there is still so much work to be done, but I am here and still need to pinch myself.
The point to this is that while I still don’t know exactly what my future will hold, or if the world will love my vision and my products as much as I do, regardless of what happens post-launch day, I know that I took a step in the right direction. In fact, I can no longer even imagine my 9 to 5 life, sitting in meetings all day, day-dreaming about what life would be like if I ever decided to take the leap.
Now, thankfully and gratefully, I no longer have to imagine. I know what it feels and looks like and I can tell you if your passion is to take up a new hobby, quit a great job to do something that is more in line with your heart or whatever it is, do yourself the best thing you can ever do for you, and do what I did —think. Think, ‘If don’t do it now, then when? At what point in my life will I take a chance on me? Asking these questions will quickly put things into perspective. We really do only have one life, so why is everyone always waiting to make it the best one possible? I’m certainly not and I hope you are not either!
