It's taken me a long time to learn this incredibly hard lesson. And yes, I say hard.
For many people, we do what is expected of us...each and every day. We get up, go to work, put on a happy face, come home, eat dinner, go to bed. Then we get up and do it all over again the next day.
Do you know how incredibly draining this is? Especially when you're unhappy and what you're doing is based on what you think you should be doing.
Take a look at the below picture. Yep - that's about how I feel... Every. Single. Day.
So I decided to make a change. A huge change.
I am quitting my day job. Yep - you read that right. I gave my notice with the government today and as of March 20th, I will no longer be a civil servant.
It's been a huge decision to make....and it's not one I've made lightly.
But it's one that has needed to be made for many years. I have been unhappy for awhile. And I kind of just went along with it. Day after day. I got up, went to work, put on a happy face, came home, ate dinner, then did it all over again the next day.
I am exhausted. And drained of my energy. And completely unhappy.
When I started health coaching and working with my essential oils, I found my passion...and in the process, I found my true, authentic self. I found who I truly am meant to be.
It was a struggle at first because I was going against the grain...I was changing up what was "supposed" to happen. I thought I was crazy for wanting to leave the government...and so did everyone else.
But this decision, it has been life-changing. I have a sense of freedom and happiness that I haven't felt in a long time! I know that what I'm doing is right for me, for my family, for my sanity!!
I'm looking forward to a new adventure. To my new outlook on life and what I'm supposed to be doing! My passion is nutrition, health, fitness, and sharing that with the world!
And you know what? It may be against the grain and not what I'm "supposed" to be doing, but it is absolutely perfect for me and what I'm meant to do in this world.
And whatever it is that you're meant to do, find it and do it with unapologetic joy and happiness! Because you are meant to do what is perfect for you! And remember this! You are perfect no matter what it is you do!
Be the "authentic" you in a world full of people just going through the motions, day after day.
With love and wellness,
