Guys. It's almost 2013.
I sure had a lot of "holy shit" moments in 2012. You know the ones, right? Those moments when you're thinking "holy shit, am I really doing this?" Out of all of those moments, I definitely have two favorites. One was going to blogshop in Seattle. If you get the opportunity to go, DO IT. And yes, that's me in the first pic! Gah I couldn't have worn nicer shoes? Ohh me.
The other was a major moment for me. Like, I didn't even believe I was doing it as I was doing it. I'm talking, of course, about quitting my job. Last New Year's Eve I remember feeling terrified, frustrated, lost - I hated my job and I didn't know what to do or how to fix it. I wanted to leave, I wanted a big change, I wanted to find my purpose and start effing living it already, no more waiting! But I was too scared to make a move. I had a feeling I should quit my job and try blogging full time, but what does "a feeling" really mean? If I only had a sign... a clue as to what to do.
It took me another 10 months to learn - that feeling, that inner pull to do something greater, more awesome, more useful, more fulfilling, more everything - THAT'S IT. That is the sign. That feeling is telling you what to do... and you know it. It's just scary. While I haven't necessarily found my ultimate super awesome true purpose yet, I know I'm on the right path.
2012 was about leaving behind what wasn't working and starting what I know was right for me. So I've started... I think 2013 is going to be about really going for what I want, listening to my "feelings" on the regular, owning my decisions, and being an effing boss and not apologizing for it. We deserve everything we want... so let's go for it, k? Me and you.
Here's to even more "holy shit, am I really doing this?" moments in 2013. Woot!
What were some of your favorite moments from 2012? Do you ever have a feeling about something, but are too scared to make a move? I'd love to hear about it, cuz believe me - I feel ya.
