Eric: You know that life is mundane, tiresome and repetitive, right?
Do you sometimes feel that you are stuck in a rut too?
I know exactly how you feel. So does Erika.
I’m so sorry for our lack of blogs, it’s been a busy time for us. So much and yet so little happening at the same time.
It’s time for a huge change for both of us right now. Work is paramount. After years of doing the same thing over and over and over again, we have decided to change EVERYTHING!
But how did we come to that decision and why?
Sometimes life takes you on a different path than the one that you expect. How many times have you looked in the mirror and asked, “What the hell am I doing?”
Well it is not only you. I promise. There is a whole world out there with over six billion people who do exactly the same thing every morning.
Sometimes life takes a particular because it has to. Something happened that changed everything. However sometimes life takes a path because you weren’t concentrating. Not looking at the map. Playing with the radio when you should have been looking at the road.
Erika has worked in the same job for 12 years. I have done about the same. And it was good. Don’t get me wrong. It was…. fine.
But it was not amazing.
I can not afford that Ford Mustang GT500 or whatever it is. Erika can not afford to be draped in gold and diamonds. We can not afford a house that requires us to buy the state-of-the-art ride on lawn mower. But that doesn’t mean that we were not happy. But then the jobs changed. The management changed. Our propects changed. We met each other and our lives changed.
So sometimes…. just sometimes… you have to jump.
Jump into the abyss. Jump into the unknown. Take a walk off the cliff and hold your arms out and hope for wings.
That is what we have done. Both of us.
Erika started her new job. And she loves it!
I have started my own business. And I love it!
We are both researching like crazy to get the best information on our new choices. Both spending hours of our lives with Google open and teaching us anything relevant that we can pour into our brains.
It is the start of something new. And it has instantly brought us both the happiness that we deserve.
The formula is easy. It’s no secret.
Research + learn + dream = jump/success.
Take a risk. Be happy.
You own your life.
