Here I am. Halfway through this year. A year of tremendous change in my life. I focused on my inner drishti, my Truth and connected to my center, my source. I sought beauty, within and without and found strength of my body and my convictions. Carried by enthusiasm, I took a leap of faith, off of steady ground into unmapped terrain. And here I am.
During the shift, I felt uncertainty, fear and panic. My heart’s initial cry of “OH YESSSS” turned swiftly into “OH CUSSSS”. While there is no mistaking the call of life that drove me to my leap, I struggled with the reality. I knew it was time to leave the steady, secure, passionless life in the cubical. The signs were there, the universe seemed with me. The events that led up to my departure, the feeling of being utterly unvalued for the work, completely affirmed by a cold and inaccurate evaluation of who I am and what I offer. I reached the point that staying was like giving up on who I am and becoming nothing more than an employee number who brings home the bacon. But what if that is what I am supposed to be?
