I Think I’ll Try Defying Gravity

Trapeze | Hey, Love

It’s time to trust my instincts
Close my eyes and leap!

I have a confession. I can’t listen to “Defying Gravity” without crying. The song isn’t new to me, and it’s never made me emotional before these last couple of weeks.

Kiss me goodbye
I’m defying gravity

Want to know why? I’m making a huge life change. Today I leave the company that I’ve been at for 9 1/2 years. I’m leaving the corporate world to go down a more creative path. I will be doing marketing and event planning for a small home construction and design company.

Everything kind of came together really fast. The opportunity presented itself and I just could not pass it up. Those who know me well know how much I truly deserve to have a job that allows me to be more creative. They know that I work hard and that this is the job that I deserve.

“Ev’ryone deserves the chance to fly!”

Sometimes I still can’t believe that this is actually happening. For so long I’ve tried to find more creative jobs but no one would give me the chance. Now I have the opportunity to do something different that is in line with my career goals and I’m leaping right in.

It’s also terrifying to leave something that has felt comfortable for so long. Now I get to do something completely different and I’m so scared of failing. I kept joking with my boss that I might come crying and running back to my old job but she’s confident I will be successful. I think everyone at work knows I wasn’t living up to my full potential.

So here I go. As I finish out my last day at Corporate Land, I’ll remember fondly of the great memories from nearly a decade of working there. I’ll miss the friends and colleagues the most but I am more than ready to start this new adventure.
