Man, when I used to work in the corporate world, as soon as my alarm would go off on Monday morning I would PRAY that Friday’s would come fast! I never really hated my job. I worked really hard, stayed late, was good at my job, liked my colleagues and made good money. But there was something missing and I still longed for the weekend each and every work day.
Until last year. I always felt like I was meant to do something else, and although I was always working in the beauty industry I never thought I’d ever be doing it full time. I was always trying to prove myself, maybe to my parents, who knows? I thought that in order to be successful I had to have a “staple” career: doctor, lawyer, nurse, teacher, etc. I bet a lot of you can relate. It LITERALLY slapped me in the face and I had a “HALLELUJAH” moment! I couldn’t believe my dream career was right in front of me this whole time! I stopped listening to others and started listening to myself. I’ve never been happier!!!!
So you’re thinking “okay Vi, why you telling me all this”? 🤔. Well, because I want to share my story to hopefully inspire and encourage YOU to do what YOU want to do. It doesn’t mean quit your job and start working for yourself,
unless of course that’s what YOU want to do and if you are able to. Maybe you love what you do but you hate your company but don’t want to leave because your comfortable. Or maybe you want to switch departments because you love your company but hate your job? Maybe you’ve been thinking about taking a course in hopes of getting a promotion? Maybe it’s learning a new skill? Whatever it is, make a change and do it now! You have another 20, 30 or even 40+ years of work left until you retire? Why don’t you spend those years doing something you really enjoy? I know it may not be easy, but if you’ve been wanting to make a move stop waiting and just DO IT NOW! We’re not guaranteed tomorrow and THAT my friends, is the scariest part!
