Well, I did it.
I quit my job.
Today is my last day at my current company. I’m trading in my MBA for my RYT (registered yoga teacher), and combining that with pure will and determination to work on two pieces of writing that have been sitting on my laptop for years just waiting to be tweaked and edited.
If anyone asks, I’m taking a leap year to work on being a writer and a yoga teacher. Hopefully this leap year turns into much more, but the path isn’t quite clear yet so stay tuned.
I decided to start this blog – My Leap Year – to track how this transition actually works. I gave my notice to my employer back in June, and if the past couple of months can predict the coming year, I am in store for some major wins, and some frustrations; a lot of hard work, and leaps of faith; a few tears, and many high-pitched squeals of pure joy. I wanted to document how this journey will go. Why? Because when I see people who actually do something they love for a living, my first question is always “How did you do that?” I finally understand that these people didn’t wait around for the right moment – they took a moment and worked incredibly hard to make it the right one.
So, if you see me in a few years at a book signing and/or yoga conference and you want to know how I did this – keep reading. It wasn’t easy, of that I’m already sure, but it will most definitely be worth it.
Welcome to My Leap Year.
