Time to put your money where your mouth is..
I feel like the last two years of my life has been leading up to this point.
Yesterday I handed in my resignation. I am officially working my notice period. It’s such a surreal feeling and honestly I’m a bag of emotions. After the 30 days I’ll be hanging up that red hat and my label as a air hostess after 5 years in the air!
I’ll be making the leap into the Unknown. Committing full to my dreams. Teaching yoga full time.
The past few weeks have been pretty hard. Flying has been testing my patience. I haven’t been sleeping great, and I can feel this underlying tension in my body.
The fear is slowly creeping in. Especially when people automatically ask me if I have a partner who’s “supporting me.” Well no, I have not and even though I do have an amazing community around me I am essentially doing this on my own.
I am wholly responsible for this and I suppose that’s why I get those tremors. Taking full responsibility for my life and everything in it. Yes that means I have no one to blame but myself! Also no sense of security for I have no idea what’s next or if I’m even going to be able to sustain myself out here. Maybe that’s why all of a sudden my little friend loneliness is creeping back in. My mind and body craving some sense of security while I do a 180 spin on my life.
So Why Bother With All The Discomfort?
Remember life starts outside of your comfort zones. How will you ever know what your capable of if you never even try – spending 60 years in your bubble of comfort only to get to 70 questioning whether you really lived your time here or watched it pass by.
Life is way to short not to take risks. Who cares if it doesn’t work out? I have a huge family at home, with 5 nieces and nephews who’ll love their auntie sar whether she makes a success of it or not. I believe whole heartedly this is the path I’m meant to be on. And I’d hate to die or get to 50; an aged air hostess asking questions that start with what if.
Im not saying we all have to give up our jobs and turn our lives upside down.
All I’m asking is are you following your heart?
There is nothing more scary
But also nothing that makes you feel more alive than following your truth.
Don’t be afraid to dream big! Why the f**k not? If you’d see some of the ideas and dreams I have about myself you’d laugh or think I was plain crazy.
In a world full of infinite possibilities, with us creating our own realities- Why not let the biggest dreams fuel your plans?
Maybe I’ll give it all I got for the next 6 months or a year, spend all my savings chasing my dreams and end up back in Wolverhampton with a family that loves me. And how beautiful is that!
It’s never about the destination but the journey itself and the things you learn along the way.
LIFE IS TO BE EXPERIENCED!
So here’s to the next chapter
