I love the idea that the fuel, the emotions I choose can either energize me or deplete me in the way I approach my life. I’ve always wanted to be a photographer but because of my thoughts around scarcity in clients I kept to my corporate job and climbed the latter there instead. Often times I’m so exhausted and depleted from work not realizing the story I was always telling myself was this: I am not suppose to be here (at an 8 to 5 job), my life and purpose is out there. This thought caused me so much pain. Since I started joining SCS earlier this month and changing my thoughts around my job I’ve come to enjoy it so much more and my overall energy level has picked up significantly.
I remember you saying, “don’t leave your (insert anything here) unless you’re happy.” I’m moving towards being more happy with my job and am wondering now, how do you know when it’s time to go after the photography dream? Why if I start to like my job so much I decide not to go? I guess I’m afraid of making the wrong choice or not going after the right thing? How do you know what’s the right decision for you?
