Two weeks ago, I gave my two weeks notice.
When I told my office manager I was quitting to work on the ranch full time, she stared at me. She wasn’t mean, but I could tell she thought it was a little strange/funny.
People have been whispering about me for two weeks now. Maybe they think I haven’t noticed. Some of them think it’s hilarious, they can’t picture me doing this. They think I will fail. Maybe I will. Maybe I will run back to my cushy indoor job after a month out here, but for the first time in my life I don’t care about what people are whispering behind my back.
I don’t care if they are laughing. I don’t care if they think my dream is stupid. I don’t care if they think I will fail. I just don’t care. I’m not afraid to be the one they are talking about.
The truth is, people whisper when you follow your dreams. They judge you, and sadly, some of them probably hope to see you fail. When we try to step out of the little boxes that people put us into, they get uncomfortable. That’s not our problem. It’s theirs.
If you’re reading this today, I hope you won’t let the whispers and peoples’ opinions stop you from doing what you want to do with your life. Even if it’s the most outlandish thing in the world, hold tightly to it, take the leap, and LET. THEM. WHISPER.
Good for you!!
People throw rocks at things that shine. That’s actually called envy. And jealousy.
Rachel, I read your next post first, then had to see what I missed. You express yourself so well, and you are very wise!! You are right, we shouldn’t care a smidge about what others think about us. Your things you’ve learned are important to remember. Stick with them, don’t let them slip away. My AHA! moments are often forgotten. Keep it up, great work.
Congratulations! You’re going to crush your goals! 🙌🏻
