Day 53/100: “High risk, high reward.”
My instagram is slowly turning into pictures of my neighbor’s flowers .
I am not a gambler. But I took a huge risk last October when I decided to quit my full time job to become a freelance writer. I saved up some money before I left, and spent every night shaking from anxiety, totally freaked out that I had made a huge mistake. Turns out, the risk proved to be totally worth it. I wake up every day and think to myself “I can’t believe I get paid to do this.” I love what I do. And I really contemplated writing this post in the first place, because I don’t want to seem preachy. But I want people to know that if you’re afraid of taking a risk, you’re not alone. My journey wasn’t a walk in the park, and it took a lot of hard work. But it’s one of the best things I could’ve done for myself (and if I can do it, you can, too).
