Go With Your Gut

I am in the process of some big changes in my life. And I can’t help but reflect to see how I got here. How did I not do this earlier? How am I ok with taking this big of a risk?

Here is where things stand in my life.

I am going to quit my job, give up my apartment and spend as much time as possible traveling.

I don’t know what you read, watch and expose yourself to, but I have been reading about people that do this for a long time. I have been reading about it for so long that i now accept that this is the beginning of every great success that I envy. I re-read that sentence that I wrote (that sentence which still is full of fear and uncertainty for me) and I can almost brush it off and think “Yeah, and?”

I feel like there are tons of success stories out there where this is the preface. Some person who had a great job and gave it all up to follow their dreams. And then they follow their dreams and the long, winding road leads them somewhere they couldn’t predict but it sure it amazing.

Does anyone else wonder if there are people that quit their job and follow their dreams and don’t find something amazing? They realize it was better in the safety zone all along? Does that ever happen?

It’s one of my fears. It’s one of my fears that I go out there to chase my dreams and it’s actually a dead end road. It goes down a path and it leads me back to where I was – at a desk job supporting other people’s dreams and earning a tiny paycheck so I  can keep running the rat race.

I hope it doesn’t end that way but it’s a fear I have. And I believe it’s important to say those fears out loud. It makes them seem ridiculous and small.
