Last July I was wrote about being laid off of my job. Never before had I been more nervous about the direction my life was heade… but man did I feel FREE! I started to fantasize about all of the things I had put off because of my commitment to work-my business plans, my nonprofit idea, my writing…
Next thing I knew, I stopped fantasizing and actually started working on them! I was glued to my notebook as I plotted out the next steps for my future. I made plans for my blog. I met with potential partners for my nonprofit. I only applied to jobs that I would be truly happy doing. Heck, I would go on interviews and find myself praying I wouldn’t get the job. It was nuts!
This was the moment I felt most satisfied with my life because the possibilities were endless. I was looking at a blank slate of potential and for the first time in a long time, I felt as if I had choices. I felt FREE.
