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.
