When I was a teacher, I was constantly looking for a way out of my career.
I could have walked away at any time, found a new job, started over, but I was scared to let go.
For 6 years, I told myself that I could tough it out, that I could make it work.
When I finally found the courage to leave, I felt embarrassed. I worried about what people would think of me.
The thing is, building the life you want, the one that makes you happy, is actually really challenging.
You have to ALLOW yourself to by happy. You have to set aside your pride and what you THINK you should be doing and just let yourself BE.
I’m now a full time ranch wife with a cleaning gig on the side. I’ve never been happier.
It’s not prestigious. It’s not intellectual. It’s not glamorous.
But, let me tell you, I’d rather scrub toilets than set foot in a classroom again, and I don’t care who knows it.
Give yourself permission to be happy, friends. You won’t regret it ✌🏻
