Monday, a new week, fresh with new possibilities.
Every day I can start new, every day is fresh with new possibilities.
We often limit ourselves to certain dates, like New Year’s Eve or ths start of a week, to change things, do make new, fresh decisions.
What we often forget is that we can start new projects, change our directions every minute, every second.
Many of us were brought up as I was with the idea that we have to stick to our decisions, no matter what happens, whether we are happy or not.
I decided to study engineering and when I finally got my diploma I felt different, I could not imagine to do this job for the next 10 years, not even for a day.
So I tried other jobs in different areas: I worked in a bookstore, then in Technical Support and as IT trainer, as Financial Consultant and in Telesales.
Some jobs were more fun than the others, but none felt completely right.
So, yes, I changed my jobs, I made decisions, I quit when I couldn’t take it anymore and I learned that we are allowed to decide what we want in life, where we want to go.
It’s not always easy and often there’s no “security” on the outside, only the feeling deep within that urged me to change things.
I admit it takes courage, and some of your friends won’t understand at all. But in the end it makes you free and happy.
You get to be who you really are and that is the greatest gift.
