Today at NAC 2015 marked the 2 year anniversary for the day I was reborn. This day 2 years ago…. I started a new life.

When I attended NAC 2013 I was working in real estate and had a very well established Real Estate career doing exactly what I loved and getting paid extraordinarily well. Little did I know how much my desires, fulfilment levels and happiness would change going back to work after that event.

It took a total of 2 months before I could no longer deny that real estate was no longer my calling, my passion, or what truly made me happy. So I quit…

Now contemplating on these 2 words, “I quit” when I tell the story 2 years later… I realise that quit doesn’t define that situation or decision as well as I would like it to. I realise that the word quit implies I left work unfinished, too early, pre-mature or that I was running away… 

But the truth was I resigned. Rather, I was choosing happiness, a new beginning, a new challenge, deeper fulfilment and happiness. I chose trusting my gut that I couldn’t really couldn’t logically comprehend or justify other than saying “it doesn’t feel right anymore” and “I feel like I’m dying inside”…. 

I didn’t leave at the wrong time… 

I left exactly at the RIGHT time…

 I didn’t quit my job. I resigned from a life that no longer served me. Instead, I chose a life of pursuing and living my dreams and passions. Of going after things bigger than just me and my clients… 

I took my first step, in truly… 

Truly… 

following my heart….
