"New beginnings are often disguised as painful endings." ~Lao Tzu

If Iโ€™m being super duper honest, parting ways with my last role was painful. But even though it hurt and made me angry, in my heart, I knew that it was for the best. And it has allowed me the opportunity to create this new #cobblerlife as my friend Saya calls it.
And while things are a bit uncertain because Iโ€™ve pretty much had a full time job all my life, I am trying my hardest to trust that opportunities and $$ will come. And everything will work out just fine. I finally have some extra time and mental space to work on my side hustle so once I get a better handle of my schedule, itโ€™ll be good to have some time to focus on Tech Biz Gurl and making a great strategy for that in the next couple of months.
In other news, #FearExperiment is going so well. I couldnโ€™t have known when I applied to the program that having this opportunity right now in my life is the most perfect timing. Because while I am learning something new, Iโ€™m also learning how to enjoy the journey of becoming. Iโ€™m laughing more and sure there are perfectionist tendencies (because I canโ€™t change overnight ๐Ÿ˜‚) but Iโ€™m leaning in to having fun and enjoying this bit of time just for me.
ALSO, if you want to come and see the output of me learning to move to some Broadway tunes along with seeing some improv and storytelling on 5/18, get your tix here! ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿพ
