NEXT CHAPTER

Scared but excited. That's where I'm at right now. Today's my last day working at the Denver Art Museum. After months of driving myself nuts trying to decide if I should stay or go... I decided to go.

When I'm having a hard time making a decision, my favorite exercise ever is to picture myself at 90 and ask myself what my 90-year-old self would want me to do... clearly, in regard to my part time museum job, 90-year-old Erin was like Do whatever the eff you want, girrrrl! You are limitless! I've always been a believer in all of those trite sayings about following your dreams! your bliss! your passion! cuz life's too short. But, guys, I had a really hard time putting it into action. Oh yeah, that. Action? Change? Actually doing something about my unhappiness? Ohhh no. Scary.

Through the fear there was always a part of me - probably/hopefully a wiser part - that knew I should leave and take that leap towards the career I really want. That part of myself encouraged me to listen to empowering jams *Kanye shrug*, subscribe to every motivational newsletter and blog I could find, and that part of me wrote my resignation letter even after I thought I'd made a final decision to stick it out. That part of myself stays calm and unchanging... and that's how I know leaving was the right decision. It sits well with my soul.

So, on to the next chapter... pretty sure it's about blogging : )
