When I was little, I wanted to be a doctor. I remember everyone in my family telling me how important it was to have a doctor in the family and we didn’t have one at the time. I was excited! .
💉until I went to the doctor with my brother and he had to get a shot. My days of wanting to be a doctor was O.V.E.R., yo
🐶 after I decided to go to school for Economics & Finance, within the first year, I called my parents and asked for their advice on changing course entirely and go to vet school. It’s not that they didn’t support me 100%, but it didn’t really make sense at the time for me to start from scratch and be in school for another 15 years
💰I finally decided that I wanted to have a career and stuck with what I knew (vs what I was interested in). Full disclosure, at the time, to me, money was important. I wanted to stand on my own two feet. So, a job in Finance it was. .
🍭 cut to 10 years later and everything is still fuzzy. But, I realized something. In pursuit of money and speed, I kept going in the wrong direction. While I don’t regret not going to vet school then, I was in a rush to finish school. When there was a bigger paycheck offered, I took the job, even if I wasn’t 100% sure it was a good move for ME.
✌🏽Quitting my job and leaving my paycheck, while stressful AF, has been so good for ME. For US as a family. .
💖 and now I’m pursuing the things I love.. slowly... without wondering when I’m going to get my first check. Coz the REASON I’m doing what I’m doing now is filling me up way more than my paycheck ever did 🙌🏽
