I Found Happiness

I'm sitting here in disbelief that this could be my career.  A few months ago I was very unhappy with my life through the lens of the corporate world.  At 27, I thought I would be more.  I thought I would be successful, busy and loving what I did every day of the week.  This was not the case.  There I was, chasing the 9-5 grind at a job that I just didn't love.  

So, for my sanity I started persuing dreams outside of my day job.  Thus, The Happiness Project began.  After struggling with a mental illness that crippled my creative worth I decided it was time for me to find a "hobby" that would act as my creative outlet.  Whether the content I was creating was good or bad, it was mine and it made me happy.  

Fast forward 50 days.  Here I am writing a blog post on a newly created website for my business.  Yes, you read that right.  A BUSINESS.  Crazy, I know.  It all happened so quickly and like a big kid butting the line for the next ride on the merry-go-round it ruffled my metaphorical feathers.  I was confused and scared to put myself out there.  But more than that, I was extremely proud, inspired, and focused. 

And just like that I am here, ironing out the next few days, months, and years of what The Happiness Project will become.

Stay Tuned.

Yours, 

Makayla
