The Path Less Traveled


Today I had an appointment with someone who used to be a middle school teacher and now runs her own salon.

She left her old career and traded it in for a new one.

She found her niche. She’s so good that people travel distances to see her just for eyebrow threading.

Is it hard to leave one career that’s not fulfilling you and find something that you not only are good at but also love? Not nearly as hard as you think.

You just have to decide that you’re going to do it and just do it.

Put the negative thinking aside and throw all the excuses away. Not only will you be happy you took that leap but you’ll be more successful.
Why? Because happiness in your career will draw money and success to you. You’ll be more successful than you ever imagined.

Imagine waking up each day to do exactly what you want to do. That life is yours if you want it bad enough.

All you have to do is take that first step.





Change Happens

Yes, because life should be a bowl of chocolate covered cherries. I have no problem with that ;)

Today I drove past an old diner that my friends and I used to frequent when we were in high school. It was half bulldozed and mostly in rubble. It was jarring to see it like that. They had closed it months ago and built a new one down the street, but they finally demolished it today. It was an old high school hangout.

What surprised me was that seeing the old place this way made me sad. I hadn’t been there in forever but to me it was a symbol of my childhood. It made me realize that as I start a new chapter in my life, it is key to leave the old things in life behind. Things change, people change and life moves forward. Nothing stays the same.

I know that many of us have a hard time dealing with change in our lives. You have to let it happen and give in to it. If you struggle against it, then your life will be a constant uphill battle.

Just my thoughts for tonight :)
