I know some will be against it. But I like the idea behind this quote I read…
“Build your own dreams, or someone else will hire you to build theirs.”
So far my dreams have come true: I have my high school sweet heart with me. I bought my first house. I’ve had a planned child. And I’ve reached my salary and career goals. So its not like I’m quitting in the middle and dropping everything.
I’ll just be taking my current completed dreams and merging them into the next chapter of my life.
I’m about to complete another decade of my life. In a few weeks I’ll be 30 years old. My younger brother just got married. My baby sister just gradated high school. And I’m burned out with what I’ve been doing for the last 10 years. The timing just seems to be organic, natural and symbolic at the same time.
This float center idea is falling into place and calling for me each day. I know I can make it successful with some help. I know I’ll be happier doing it. I’ve found that I get the most joy when I make others happier. Seeing my customers emerge from the float room glowing and rejuvenated will bring so much joy to me.
The money wont be great at first. The stress and work load will be more than I have now. I assume the fear of failure will always be present. And my family may not get to see me as much as they are used to…Who knows what else.
What I do know is that I’m excited about it. I’ll enjoy bringing release, relaxation and comfort into my customers’ lives. I’ll be building something I own and working for myself. Others will be relying on me, pushing me and driving me to be successful. And I’ll be bringing a truly unique and beneficial service to NC & SC. All I need to do is get started.
If that means leaving an awesome stable job high on the ladder, then so be it
If that means selling my home and up-rooting my family into the unknown, then so be it.
If that means sacrificing family time now for more time in the future, then so be it.
These issues are a bit overwhelming at times. But writing this stuff down gets it out of my head. Reading it over again helps me acknowledge it, understand it and deal with it. The blog then becomes an outlet or pressure relief valve for my internal and situational struggle.
Floating and Wellness in general are ideas worth spreading and educating others on. I have this idea of a peaceful future, a Utopia of sorts. Why cant I be apart of bringing that idea into reality?
…and I will.
Time to get busy.
