You’ve probably been hearing this word more often then usual. The word purpose.
The old mentality of find a job and as long as it pays the bills has been shifting for me and a lot of others I am seeing. Maybe for many of you this was never your mentality, but for A LOT of us we’ve been through the ringer in the corporate world or maybe that’s worked well for you and that’s fine too. Maybe your soul slowly died more everyday you went into a job you despised. Hands raised, yup me too.
There’s gotta be a better way, right?
We’ve all struggled on some level to figure out what the heck it is we are meant to do here.
Let’s face it, WE ALL HAVE A PURPOSE.
We are all unique and every single one of us has a different gift for a reason.
I’ve worked in the restaurant industry on and off the last 10 years of my life, in between doing other jobs and even tried office work for a few years. I usually like all of the jobs at first but before I know it burn out was kicking my butt every time.
I decided to step away from working for a little and gave myself a second to figure out what I wanted next.
Bills are important but your happiness should always be a priority.
The money comes, the next day comes (usually) but what if you waste your whole life being a dulled down version of who you never wanted to be…. That is the real tragedy.
Balance is possible. We are allowed to get paid doing what we love and also build a life we love.
Who said you had to do it this way or that way, no you can do why you want how you want!
I can say dropping those shitttt jobs was a tough decision but the best decision I could have made. Even though it’s been uncomfortable in different ways I am becoming happier. I’m still figuring out how to make money in the online world but it’s exciting to expand in different ways and just giving myself permission to dream again has been everything.
Earning money and being happy with what you are doing is possible. Earning the most money you ever have while doing what you were made to do, now that’s the life! Now that’s purpose.
