Stepping Out In Faith…

In Daily Musings on June 7, 2012 at 12:54 pm

 

1 year ago today, I left a high paying job of 8 years to step out in faith, and follow my own path.  Sometimes you have to take a risk, risk can be good!  It’s important to calculate your risks as best as you can; more importantly, put your faith in God, he will never steer you wrong.  A good paying job does not instantly mean happiness, I found that out the hard way.  A high paying job does not guarantee you good health, good relationships or  good associates, I found that out too. 

There’s nothing wrong with working for corporate America, corporate UK or wherever you are in the world, just make sure you are in that job for the right reasons and not just to get a cheque.  I choose to work for myself.  I’m an Aquarian, I am creative, I need to just be… Me!

In the last 12 months I have not looked back.  Instead, I started my blog, stepped up my crochet business, opened my Etsy store, figured out Twitter, taken on contract work; made fantastic friends on Instagram (and Twitter), and more importantly I became one happy, over the moon, high-heeled strutting, loving her life, vintage wearing woman! It’s been an amazing journey.  Believe me, I haven’t really started yet! There’s so much more to come!

There are those who rooted for me every step of the way, and from the bottom of my heart, I truly thank you. You’ve helped to make this journey what it is.

Be you… Always!

Love & light.

  6. Hi my friend,
    Well done x its been very Interesting to hear about you changing your life and doing so well and loving it. I’ve been reading about life paths and such and thought I’d share an experience with you. After reading a bit about spiritual growth, and being super stressed out running through life, I asked out loud, to my angels, advisors, guides etc, for time to research more into this kind of thing. I found my life slowed down by Pvfs which has made me have to take life very slowly and look after my body and mind. One upside of this has been joining Instagram, re-awakening my love of art, colour and nature and of course, meeting you. Thanks my friend you are inspirational, stylish and fun and I’m pleased to have met you and follow your blog. Love x Tg

    • Hi darling! Thank you so much. Instagram has been fantastic to me too. I’ve met some really wonderful people. IG has also reawakened my love of art and beautiful things. This path I’m on has been amazing. It took a long time to make the decision, but once I did, everything fell into place. I love reading anything regarding spiritual growth. I’m glad you enjoy my posts as I enjoy your beautiful photography. Keep doing what you do best. Everything will fall into place.

      It’s beena pleasure meeting you too, let’s conquer the world!!

  7. AWWWH YAY! I am making the move myself. Stability is a life draining addiction. A dream killer. SO I’m kicking my government job to the curb and moving myself..

    WISH me luck
    XOXO
    Ty

    • Oh honey!!! more power to you! and you said it perfectly… Stability truly is a life draining addiction. My life is so much more amazing. No I don’t have the big income anymore, but my life is so much more fulfilling and richer! I have what I need!

      Go for it!!

  8. How wonderful! I love to hear stories of people, especially women, following their passion and finding joy in doing so. Keep up the great work!

    • Thanks so much darling! It truly has been an amazing journey! I thank you so much for stopping by. There’s so much more to come!

  9. stories like yours need to be shared to awaken and inspire others who may not otherwise know that we each have a deeper meaning and purpose – one that goes beyond a paycheck. wishing you continued success and happy to have made your acquaintance on twitter!

    • Oh my gosh!! Thank yo uso much. Your comment means so much. This has been a fantastic day sharing my experience with others, hoping to give someone the courage to move forward in their own lives. I’m happy to have made your acquaintance on Twitter too! God bless and good luck on your own endevours!

  10. Wow! That is absolutely wonderful. I too am very creative and sitting behind a desk for 8 hours a day doesn’t do much in the way of stimulation. While I am happy to be working, I know it’s not my purpose. But I’m still sorting it all out.
    Blessings to you. Your story is such an inspiration. Thank you for sharing.

  11. awww. This was really inspiring!!

    • Thank you so much. It’s been a true journey, daunting at times, but loving every single minute of it! Thanks for reading.

    And so encouraging, there is a whole lot of world out to discover other then working at a 9-5 unhappy!

    Great post!
