I honestly don’t know if I ever thought that this post would come. It feels like I’ve been wanting this forever, but at times it seems like not so long ago that I started this journey.
If you ask me when I knew I wanted to be a wedding planner, I don’t know that I could tell you. I was a blogger first, and I loved the idea of living a creative life. I loved weddings, ever since I planned my own, and it seemed just so logical.
Though I’ve been planning weddings for a few years now, I officially launched my website on October 11, 2011. Less than fourteen months ago, I put myself out there. I told the world that I was good enough to try, and this past year has proven that I’m good enough to keep going. I’m good at what I do.
During this time, however, I’ve had to work for someone else, toward someone else’s goals and vision. It’s part of life, I suppose, and part of being married to someone. I’ve worked full time so that I could advance my career, before I knew what I wanted my career to be, and I worked so that I could support my family.
From December 7, 2012 on, I will be working for other reasons. Sure, I’ll be working to make money and provide for my family, but I’ll also be working for me, to make myself a better person and to prove to others that you can live your dreams. All you have to do is work for it.
I want to thank you all for putting up with me for these past two years. I want to thank you for supporting me, for believing in me, and for inspiring me to keep going. Without you, and without all of the creative women I’ve met in this blogging community, I don’t know that I ever would have thought that I could do it on my own. I don’t know that I would have even known what it is I wanted to do, let alone how to do it.
But I’m doing it.
I quit my job.
I’m living my life for me.
