Earlier today at work at a team meeting, we did an ice breaker where we shared what we would be doing if we weren’t in our current positions.

Immediately, my first thought was, work at a clinic doing mental health counseling hopefully with a therapy dog.

Then someone mentioned travel blogger and I thought how brave to share that out. I felt my own judgment coming through. Then I quieted that voice because it didn’t belong to me. I was taught to doubt and scoff at jobs that were up for interpretation and financially unstable. But as a person in the world striving to live a happy and fulfilled existence, I say do whatever energizes you. Although, even that thought is flawed. Even when you love what you do, it can also drain you.

Then, the colleague next to me shared out that she would probably be a full-time housewife tending to the needs of her two young kids aka her other full-time job. She laughed lightheartedly but I could only imagine the exhaustion and the never-ending list of things to do.

Then it was my turn to speak.

For the first time in my life, I have given myself the opportunity to execute the ideas that have been tucked away in the deepest corners of my brain. It feels wonderful, exhilarating, terrifying, and discouraging all at the same time.
