The time is now- originially written on 5/23/2017

Okay, so  I am making mistakes and learning along the way with my blog/wordpress/website. That being said I have 2 posts ( one more after this, which I might just make my “about me”  site.  Thanks for your patience with me friends!

 

Here’s the thing.

 

I want to do things, when I want to do them. I don’t want to have any regrets. I would rather put my all into trying something, than to be too afraid to try something.  The time to start is now.  I am sitting at my desk of my day job, practically shaking because I am SO full of desire to do SO MUCH MORE than I am doing.  I want to travel, I want to cook, I want to bake, I want to garden, I want to live each day as fully as I possibly can with Brian, even if that is a Harry Potter Marathon Day filled with loaded nachos and guac.  And lately, with things that I have been reading, and watching, and learning, I feel like it’s completely possible.  I finally feel ready to be my own boss.  I never thought I wanted to be a boss, especially the boss of me. I was perfectly happy filling that “assistant” roll. I’ll be honest, I loooooove helping people. I love pumping people up, getting them excited for their day. I’m great at anticipating needs, I don’t want to stop that.

I dont think it’s a bad thing to want more. I am sitting here, content with so many things in my life. That’s how I know it’s the right time to do this, to start this.

I dont want to miss out on things. on vacations, or concerts, opportunities, or adventures. I want to have relationships with my family, with my brother,  with my boyfriends cousins, heck, with people I haven’t even met yet! I want to have the time to learn from everyone I meet!

Just because I have this pre existing condition does not mean I should be living from paycheck to paycheck, or constantly feeling like I have to stay in a safe space to survive, and feel like I am missing out on things. I want more than to just exist.

I dont want to work on someone elses time. I want to work on my time.  I’m tired of worrying about how many vacation days I have left, or how many of my sick days have I used up. I want to see an opportunity, and I want to take it, right then and there! The only thing that I want to think about, is how excited I am to tell Brian about my next adventure!

 

I want to live life.  That is what this all boils down to.

So this is where I am going to put my blogging journey about working towards that goal. The goal of leaving my 8-5 life behind, and taking the necessary steps to do it! I need to make sure I have enough income to not only support myself with insurance and bills, but to be debt free, and enough money for all of these adventures!

 

And yes, this post is everywhere all over the place, but you know what, it’s a start. That’s what I need to do, I need to start.  I’ll need some time to get organized, but really, I have nothing but time on my side. I am going to be taking 6 weeks off of work to have my hip replaced, and that will be the perfect time to create lists, and blog posts, and all sorts of goodness to keep this journey moving!  I want to be able to look back at this post and get pumped up all over again.

Can’t wait to talk to you soon friends!
