Taking a Leap of Faith
This topic has been weighing heavy on my heart for the last few months so I decided to use this platform as an outlet and to share. For last 4 to 6 months, I have found myself dreading my job. I am grateful to have a job with benefits, retirement and so on but this is not my calling. I am miserable here and change must come and very soon. I have decided to search for my purpose. After reading multiple self-help and empowering books, I am more inspired than ever to pursue a new me and leave my comfort zone. We were all put here on earth for a reason. Everyone has a purpose; it’s just up to you to go after it. I now need to figure out what my PURPOSE is. It’s time for me to take a Leap of Faith. In the recent months, I have been a witness to friends and family taking leaps of faith to pursue dreams, in search of happiness and to discover their purpose in life. Leaps of Faith are not always fun but they bring about amazing outcomes. In order to grow you must be uncomfortable. The fear of instability has held me back for so long. It has crippled me into thinking it is better to be secure rather than uncertain. Fear will no longer hold me back. In order to realize your purpose you must become a “new you”, someone you’ve never met and are not comfortable with. This can only be done when you leave the familiar behind.
Go after your purpose, do what makes you happy, and live in your purpose. This does not happen overnight but it will happen. I have given myself a specific timeline to step out on faith and live in my purpose. I will quit my job, move to another city and focus on my passion, my purpose and my gifts. Life is too short and too precious to waste time doing things that do not add to your happiness. My advice to anyone in a similar situation is to JUST DO IT. Do what will make you a better person.
More to come. Stay tuned!!!
