It’s Thursday on this sunny, warm February morning. I am sitting at a coffee shop, reflecting on the last couple weeks, as life has done a 360, propelling me into the world I have been longing for.
Have you ever felt stuck in a spot in life that you want to change so badly but you just don’t know how? Feeling thirsty for new challenges and personal growth? I have been in that place for the last few years now, ready to move away from my job as a Paramedic and move into my passion of preventative health. After all this time, I have been finally presented with an opportunity to do so; in a role that not only is changing lives in heathy way but it is exactly what I asked for!! It’s not easy to make change. I have struggled deeply with this transition, leaving a job that is secure and comfortable to a job with so many unknowns – leaving me feeling vulnerable. What I have learned on my journey in life is that we don’t grow without change and we do not create the life we want without taking risks. It’s easy to become complacent in that comfortable place but if you have ever dreamt of having more out of your life, then you have to take that leap of faith and trust that making changes will only present you with new opportunities, leading you closer to that life desire.
As I leave the comfort of some amazing coworkers, financial stability and job security… I move into a world that will give me balance, personal health, growth and ongoing learning.
We have one life to live and as a Paramedic you come to realize quickly that life can be short and we must make the most out of the time we have! Go for it!!
