I cant stop telling my friends and family about this story I learned of this week, and I can't think of a more enthusiastic audience to share it with than you! The other morning on the Today Show, Meredith interviewed a 62 year old woman named Antoinette who left her law career to become a chocolatier. She left her job, enrolled in culinary school, and within a few years bought an old house and transformed it into Antoinette's Chocolatier. Antoinette had never worked so hard but never felt better, so satisfied and most importantly, happy. In the three years she has been in business, she is barely braking even, but again, has never been happier.
This little story which I was watching before jetting off to my day job, reminded me how important it is to be in touch with your passions and doing whatever you can to keep you dreams alive. Even if you are not in a position to up and leave your job, pay for school, etc... you can explore and plot and with enough drive and dedication you can make your dreams come to life and you WILL be successful!
Look at me, Shorely Chic is an ever evolving dream and I keep it alive with my daily inspirations and little online shop. I still have a day job, go to school on the side for what I love, and work tirelessly on my shop and keeping up with blogging, facebook, twitter, etc... I have never been busier, but have never been happier!
Okay, enough preaching for the day, hehe!! Make it a great one!!
And one thing to remember, it doesn't happen overnight.
