Too often we catch ourselves on autopilot mode, caught in the same routine, the same 9-5 grind. Unhappy, unfulfilled, and uninspired we go through life counting time instead of making time count. While it is perfectly normal to crave routine, there is so much more to be discovered outside of our comfort zones.
We tend to create clutter and remain stagnant when we are doing the same old thingsJulie Coraccio
I read this story of Liz Berman on Readers Digest.
“I started off making cakes for my kids and quickly realized that baking provided me with a creative outlet that had been missing from my work in human resources. I started posting pictures of my work on Facebook and soon developed a large following. Friends and friends of friends started asking me to make cakes for them, so I figured I should give this a shot as a business! After several years baking at night while working in my office during the day, I decided to take the leap and go full-time with it. That was five years ago and I never looked back! Since then, the business has grown dramatically! It was clearly the best decision for me because it taps into a creative and entrepreneurial side of me that had previously been unfulfilled. The added bonus is I’m able to be home for my kids every day when they come home from school!”
Life can feel overwhelming. Often we weave these complicated webs consisting of commitment, money, work, friends, family and more that seem to hold us in one place. But life is flexible and if there’s one thing I’ve learned, the people who love you will always bend with you to help you change yours if you really need to.
It is never too late to change your life and go after your dreams. You are never stuck. It is never impossible or out of reach. All you have to do is make a start.
