It’s okay to outgrow yourself

It’s OKAY to outgrow yourself….What the heck am I talking about?  To be honest, I’m talking about me, and you, and all of us who are on a forever journey to themselves.

I’m the kind of person who is a dream chaser.  I get my eye and my heart on a certain vision, than I plan accordingly, and journey towards that dream.   It happened with radio, marriage, a house, children, and it’s happening again.  I’m chasing a new dream, one I hope lasts me for decades.

 

There’s nothing wrong with being complacent, it’s what make the world go around.   Personally though, I think life is short, and I love to achieve many different types of dreams and goals within it.

 

 

Recently, I resigned from my position as the night space DJ on WDHA.  I had been at WDHA since 2002, and sixteen years later, it was definitely one of the hardest decisions to make.  I feel like I “outgrew” the position.  What once made my soul happy and feel accomplished, didn’t anymore.  My being, my soul, craved more.

 

There may have been circumstances that would’ve kept me there until retirement, but because they didn’t happen, and others did, the universe has sent me on a new path.   What once used to satisfy me and make me happy , isn’t good enough anymore.  It isn’t good enough for me, and it certainly isn’t good enough for my family.

I also can’t do the “what if” scenario, because in my situation, it’s more of an “it is what it is” type of change.   The things I cannot control forced me to look inside myself and fight for more.  Fight for more for my family, and fight for more for me.

Leaving a job that I outgrew mentally and physically wasn’t easy don’t get me wrong.  But, Im excited.  I have a fire burning inside of me for more within my life and my soul, and THAT is pretty freaking cool!  The thing is, it IS okay to outgrow yourself, and it’s more than okay to change.  I’m not the same person I was getting into my career, and I’m extremely different leaving it.  I crave more, in almost every area imaginable, and I’m on a new quest to achieve it.

It’s probably the most scariest feeling in the world to start a new journey, or a new career path, especially after being in one for so, so, long.  But I happen to love a good challenge, and I know what scares me only makes me stronger in the end.  Life should be lived right?? It is never ever ever, too late…..

The scarier the more meaningful in my eyes, so lets see what my soul develops into next.

 

Namaste, and Rock On!
