How many times did I hear this sentence:
“Oh, this won’t look good in your resume. This will make you look flaky, inconsistent and indecisive.”
8 years ago I quit my office job to follow my passion and start a dance career.
Crazy enough, but after 5 years of dancing every day, I just didn’t feel it anymore. I thought, I must be insane, that I am such an inconsequent person.
The only thing I wanted to do all day was watching people and writing. So I quit all my dance jobs and went to New York for the summer. I sat in cafes, watched people, wrote down all my thoughts all summer long.
Although I didn’t have a clue what to do for the rest of my life, I felt so aligned with my soul’s purpose.
Once in a while I felt guilty for not being able to stick to one thing, but now I know I was a fool. Because...
I mean, how can anybody expect you to know in advance, what you wanna do for the rest of your life?
You, your needs and your desires are changing constantly.
The way you want to express yourself in this world today can be different from 5 years ago.
So why would you stick to a job which was right for the time, but doesn’t feel right anymore?
What I noticed is, that we all worry too much about a messy resume, but not about a messy life.
I love it. He is truly an idol for me. Here is why:
If he feels like running, he runs.
If he doesn’t feel it anymore, he stops.
Honestly, this is the way to live.
That’s the only way to stay sane in this world.
I’ll promise you, in this way, you will definitely have some great stories to share with your grandchildren :-)
