Life update. ⠀
I started this year feeling stuck. (If you have not checked out "SHAKE IT UP PT.1", here you go) I wanted to break out, away from Richmond & away from my job of 5 years. But with the threat of the pandemic & the comfort of job security, I stayed. Thinking that was God’s response. ⠀
The feeling of stagnancy didn’t go away mid-quarantine. If anything, they multiplied. *Cue KLiggCo* I found an entire new set of skills & ambitions that I never into before! Yay, right?! ⠀
BUT when coupled with my full time job, I felt those restrictions again. Confined to the stagnancy that I worked all quarantine to escape. Things did not feel the same. I was feeling less fulfilled by the day. I now know that He was pushing me for change in all aspects. These newly discovered gifts were to be nurtured not only in my personal business, but throughout my life. So after much debate (fear), I applied for jobs that catered to my passion of BOTH creativity & advocacy. ⠀
I left the comfort of my first big girl job post undergrad & jumped head first into Digital Communications. (Go ahead and ask me what my degree is in!)
The thing is, I honestly thought I had my life all planned out. Being an entrepreneur & working full time in Communications, was never MY plan. But again & again, I find that my original plan may not be what is truly best for me. Surrendering to the flow of life is a decision that can be intimidating and right down, scary at times. But what are your 20's really for?!
This is a developing story, so I will keep you updated with just how far God will take my “little” request to “shake things up”.
