After college, I got a job at an investment company in Downtown Boston. I took the train to work every day. I was proud, because I thought it was what I was “supposed” to do.
After a few months of very long train rides from Providence to Boston and walking in one too many snow storms I found myself dreading work on Monday mornings. Well, every morning, actually.
The work I did was tedious, I was just 1 of hundreds. The pay was barely sufficient, and the only thing I liked about the job were the few friends I had made there.
I would call in sick ( more times than I’d like to admit) and I would drive around beautiful neighborhoods wondering how people could afford to live like this and still enjoy their lives.
This was the time in my life, about 18 years ago where I started getting this feeling deep in my heart that told me, I was meant to do more.
As the years passed, I got married, had children and held other jobs, but the feeling in my heart stayed strong, telling me, I was meant to do something more than work in an office 9-5 every day. It just wasn’t what I was here for. But I had no idea what that “other thing” was.
Tonight I can lay in bed thinking about tomorrow, Monday morning, and I’m happy! Excited even! To check in with my coaches and see how the people In my challenge groups are doing? I love answering their questions and finding out how their weekend went and letting them know, it’s ok if you didn’t get your workouts in!! Today is a new day.
Most of all, my heart and head are finally at peace. I no longer drive around and wonder how people live these big lives?? Because I now love my own life! I KNOW this is exactly where I belong. It took me 18 years to get here, but it was worth it❤️
If you have that feeling in your heart, telling you, there is something more out there for you, don’t ignore it!! Be open to finding it! It will be worth it!
