So my first week of unemployment was not what I expected. My intention was to take the dogs for extra long walks, takeaway coffees, movie marathons, cleaning the house from top to bottom, filing hubby’s paperwork, lunch dates with friends, afternoon siestas and to enjoy a glass of red wine with dinner.
Instead, it mostly involved me sitting at a computer. Working.
And I’m OK with that.
I think my vision is becoming clearer. I now have a better understanding about what motivates me and drives my passion. And that is exactly what I needed.
I needed some clarity.
So, the movie marathons can wait. My desire for a break can wait. I’m focused and ready to crack open a brand new vision. A brand new business. (I still need to find a part-time job to pay the rent but baby steps and stuff first).
Whilst I’d normally be setting specific intentions about my vision, I’m still letting it brew. For the minute, I just want to enjoy the feeling and butterflies. The joy and thrill when something starts to form and take shape. It’s an adventure and it’s currently making me tingle from head to toe.
My first few design projects have delivered the biggest energy shift and to see those clients go forth and recommend me to other people just floors me. I’ve created everything from logos to art prints to opt-in’s to media kits to web headers to newsletter templates. The list goes on and on.
I’M ON MY PATH and damn that feels fucking good!
So, what’s the point of all this?
Simply put, intention is the power key.
Once you declare what it is that you want, the intention is born. The movement and energy will then start to spin and swirl and drive you forward. Before you know it, a path is laid out for you to walk down. Sometimes it takes years, but in my case, it’s a matter of months.
My intention was to leave behind my corporate job and follow my true passion for creativity, design and writing. It may be a tad reckless and I’m so frightened of failing, but the exhilarating feeling it gives me will drive me forward.
Does anyone else like big bold declarations? Are you seeking an adventure as well?
Share it with me! Leave me a list of your intentions.
