I remember a tweet from Olga of @Sassyradish about a year ago sharing the news that she had left her career on Wall Street. Olga was a risk taker, a determined dreamer and I very impressed. I love people who take chances.
She plunged head first into what she really loved to do, and that was food and writing. I knew from that moment on that her blog would be breathing a new energy from a woman living a life with intention. I love people who know what they want.
Exactly one year later she writes to share where she’s at and how she’s grown as a person and in her new career. Her journey has been remarkable in just 365 days. Please read her words about this experience. I loved reading her post. I read it 3 times.
Her story is inspiring on so many levels because last year she was determined, passionate and strong enough to make the “plunge into the unknown” with a quiet, fearless strength. Her focus to make her new career path work. The next day, she was busy chopping garlic. Now a year later, she’s working on a book and staying busy with wonderful new opportunities.
Reading her posts reminds me of some scary decisions I’ve made in the past few years too, some of which kept me up and drained me of thought, sleep and energy. But at the end of the day, Todd and I always knew that we would work to make things happen. No matter how scary the endeavor was, we were to stay focused and most importantly, strong for one another.
We told ourselves that we were going to make our lives happen the way we wanted, on our own terms, without fear, doubt or ego.
So I ask you, “Where will you be a year from today?” Set a goal right now, today and see where your journey lands you in February 9, 2013.
Cheers to you, Olga. I’m excited for you and looking forward to your post next year, two years after your plunge.
have a great weekend everyone,
beauty at the end of the journey
