Are You a Victim or an Adventurer...
Sometimes you just have to advertise yourself. Take to the streets. Make it happen. When you feel like nobody is paying attention, you are probably right! But don't get discouraged, just keep on doing it. People will begin to take notice. Stay true to you. Stay true to your purpose. Stay true to your element.
I am doing this post as a kind of reflection on the past year, and this whole journey (past 4.5 years) in general. I've got lots to be thankful for and I have learned so much. It has been scary, invigorating, risky, insane, impossible, exhilarating, all at once! Stepping out of the 9-5 framework is not easy, it will show you quickly what you're made of. You will come face to face with your fears and with your weaknesses.
You will want to quit. You will want to run back to the comfort of the 9-5 world. Don't. Well, if you really want to go ahead, but if you can stand it, don't. This is how cool, unique things are born. This is how something is built from nothing.
Not for the faint of heart but for the adventurer, the sojourner, for those who long for authenticity. For those who long to live true and leave their mark. There is always a way. And chances are, you are endowed with resources and support that will exceed your expectations.
I have found this famous Goethe quote to be so true: "Whatever you can do or dream you can begin it, boldness has genius, power and magic in it."
Live your truth, and so enrich the world with your own unique light!
