Coming Full Circle
So we’ve come full circle.
Some times you have to wander away to find out who you really are.
Some times you have to be a rebel, ditch the rental car and brave the New York City Subway system.
Some times, you have to make changes just to answer the “what ifs” so you won’t have the “I should haves”.
When you find yourself back at where you began, does that mean you failed?
Does that make YOU a failure?
Hell Freakin No!
It doesn’t mean you’re a failure.
It may mean that after living in Maine for a year, you realize you really want to live in NYC.
Doesn’t mean you should have never left NYC, it just means that you’ve found you’d rather live there than in Maine.
It may mean that you’ve found the film director executive assistant gig you took for a year, after being in photography for five years, isn’t what you want to keep doing. You want to get back to the photo industry, be back in production getting your hands dirty, not playing executive ass and sitting behind a desk all day. You don’t regret the gig, you’ve just come to realize you prefer the other way you use to spend your day.
It may mean that when you leave your sweetheart of 6 years to go out and find yourself and still return to him 5 years later and marry him, that you’ve found yourself and know who you are without him and you know he’s what you want.
I’m still the mompreneur I was at that time, though I’m no longer working a full time job and moonlighting to start my own biz and taking care of the family. Now it’s just my biz and my family and I work when they’re all sleeping.
But I’ve been around the block a few times in the past two years when it comes to this blog and I know now who I am and who I want to be so I’m pretty damn comfortable telling you I’m a Mompreneur and a mom blogger. I’m back to blogging what I want, whether it be family related or biz related and I don’t feel iffy about it or worried about mixing niches as I worry about mixing drinks.
sidenote: I take Hennessy with Red Bull. That’s it. Ok, sometimes I’ll have tequila,
but I won’t mix drinks, that will just make me barf.
I’ve grown to learn what more I want to do, and damnit, I’m going to do it. And? I’ll kick ass at it too!
Have you come full circle in anything and found that though you’re right back where you started, you’re in a better place?
