I’ve had a few jobs since college. I remember graduating and thinking that companies would somehow get this grand email announcement that I was available to work. I had no idea that you needed to chase the jobs. My first position was going door to door in the city of Philadelphia selling credit card processing machines.
I learned a lot from my time in the city, and it was enough to know I needed something with stability. I went from there to a bank and a lawn service company. I transitioned to a hospital through a family connection. I’ll never forget the day that I decided to start my own business and chase the writing life.
I believe we all have a calling, a purpose on this planet. We have dreams on our hearts and reasons to wake up in the morning. We must find the courage to chase the dreams.
I had a line I identified with past jobs: when it was worth more to spend time searching than working, I knew it was time for a transition. Every journey starts with one step, yes it is a cliché, but it is true. Choices are powerful things. Momentum can sweep you and those around you towards a common goal. Story creates movement and engagement. Stories are driven by dreams. It is one large cycle that keeps rotating until you finally decide to take the leap of faith and go for it.
I believe that God has his hands on our dreams and he will bless our progress, even through the dark times. So, if you are feeling the tug on your heart, have the courage to follow it through.
