It's been exactly a month since my last blog post and so much has happened. Truth be told, I find it challenging to be creative when I'm going through a tough time and unfortunately my blog thrives on passion and creativity. I took some time off work a few weeks ago; it felt like the rat race finally got to me. A moment to myself, away from everything, was exactly what I needed to find clarity; after all, isn't clarity something that we're all constantly seeking? I was at a crossroad, a part of me felt like giving up on everything I've worked for. I had one of two choices: either give up and go through life feeling sorry for myself or risk it all trying to live the life of my dreams despite what others may think. I decided to risk it all.
Instead of curling up into a ball of nothing, I decided to dig deep and find out what I'm truly passionate about and in a few weeks I'll be able to share it with you all. 2016 has been a challenging year; for a while it felt like an endless downward spiral that I had absolutely no control over. Bottling up my feelings became detrimental to my health, I was a ticking time bomb and a few weeks ago I exploded. However, I'm grateful for the experience; my state of discomfort and dissatisfaction was exactly the push I needed to get my life together in a major way.
I'm about to take a long and hard journey on the road less travelled; the road of uncertainty and paralysing fear. Am I terrified? Of course, but again I find myself stuck with one of two choices: either spend my life running away from the fear or work through the fear, and once again I decided to risk it all. No security. No guarantees. All I have is blind faith and the hope that I'll be able to connect the dots someday.
