i am trying to keep up with myself and with my goals for the week. did i mention that i gave up my job? yes, yes i did. it's been coming down the pipe for awhile, something i've been considering and waiting for. i will still work a day here and there, but the steady schedule and paycheck are gone. it feels a bit risky and strange to be supporting us (esp while john finishes grad school) without either of us having official paychecks from corporate america, but my instinct says this is a good and smart decision. for me. it's part of saying YES to an artful living and it'll allow me to continue saying yes to art projects and opportunities without the craziness of a seemingly dual life with scheduling conflicts. medical social work will always have a spot in my conscious, and i will always support the profession, but i'm moving on with dreams big and wide and deep with meaning.
another leap. feels damn good the more i settle into the knowing that one small step leads to another one..and here i am. thank you to to everyone who has made this decision possible for me. my heart feels big with gratitude. i'd also like to give a shout out to my dear friend kat, who also left her job this week, while she continues to live and support herself as a kick ass filmmaker in austin. dreams are real. and possible.
