As I am embarking on my last week of employment at said video game company, I cannot help but look at the current state I am in.
The process of submitting my resignation has been an emotional one. There have been instances of both elation and sadness as I face the future. I will be leaving a small community of friends that have become my family over the past 3 years of employment, however, they have been nothing but supportive in regards to my endeavors.
I am getting a chance of a lifetime to pursue my passions. I refuse to take this opportunity for granted as I know that not many people are offered a chance at something that truly makes them happy. The next few months will be transformative ones and I cannot help but take a Carpe Diem attitude and jump head first into my potential career and dream.
The worst case scenario is that I will have to return to the regular work world to save money and travel the old fashioned way -or- I can have my cake and eat it too. I can travel and do my blog AND do photography. If I don’t take this chance, I know for a fact that I will regret it for the rest of my life. I do not like living with “what ifs”. I live my life by the following mantra:
So, here is a toast to our future – a one of learning, understanding and growth – a future of creativity and self discovery. I’m drinking the nectar of life and I implore you to be with us, both in spirit and in making the jump.
Cheers. To a new beginning!
