So, we're really getting into the thick of the 4th quarter of the year and my goodness, it has been a year. As we move closer towards the end of the year, I've been thinking a lot about the friendships I've had, the choices I've made and the work that I do. I guess I can say that I've been extremely self reflective about how I've gotten to this point in my freelance work, my corporate job and just life in general. When I quit my job in 2016, I had no idea where it was going to lead. What I did know at the time was that I could not continue working at my previous place of employment due to the rising level of stress, job uncertainty and dissatisfaction. So, I quit, and at the time I was very lucky to have supportive parents who I could fall back out while I worked to figure my career path out. Is this something that I would recommend to all the struggling millennials out there looking to find their place? Probably not. I definitely took the jumping into the dark path in terms of deciding my fate, and while it did eventually work out, there were a lot of wasted job interviews, spurts of self loathing, anxiety and fear along the way. As I'm moving forward in a corporate job that I enjoy, a freelance career I love and a podcast/collective that I feel finally gives me the opportunity to express myself, I'm looking back at my choices and I do feel like career wise I made the right decision. My personal life is definitely still in the phase of development and growth, but at least I know that I made one right decision when it comes to my professional path and the potential for success.
