A few weeks ago, my friend Travis guest posted for Money Tune Tuesday with Sick Puppies’s Riptide. In that post he talked about how important it is to know that the decisions you make are the right ones for you–even if those closest to you don’t agree. This is something that I struggle with in my own life, although it is getting easier for me to learn that what’s right for me may not conform to others’ opinions for my life but that doesn’t mean it’s wrong.
Something else that I’m working on learning is that even though something like a new career is scary, that doesn’t mean I shouldn’t try. For too long I’ve resided in the comfort of situations and jobs that don’t make me happy. The reason I’ve stayed put for so long due to fear and lack of confidence in myself and my abilities. After all, if I don’t think I’m better than mediocre or that I think I don’t deserve better than mediocre, that’s exactly what I’m going to get. And thus far, that’s exactly what I’ve gotten. But it’s getting to the point that I need to start facing my fears and believing the encouraging words of friends and family.
It’s getting to the point that, to quote today’s Money Tune, maybe it’s time to change.
Changing the course of my entire life is horrifically frightening. It keeps me up at night, makes it hard to concentrate on anything else and oftentimes, I think of anything I can do to avoid making some incredibly difficult choices. Given all of that, it’s no secret I’ve been turning to Sick Puppies’s Maybe as a source of comfort and inspiration. While it may just be a song and a video, to me, it’s much more than that.
