5 Mar

This past week has been a whirlwind. After nearly 5 years of working in the television industry I made the difficult decision to leave in order to embark on a career in event planning. After a brief Florida vacation I’ll be taking some time off to get things sorted out. And by “things” I mean my life. For some reason referring to my life as “things” makes this whole process seem a little less scary. Recognizing my passion for another field was easy, it was the decision to leave my amazing company that made the process difficult. I respect and admire my fellow coworkers more than I can put into words. They watched and helped me grow from a slightly chubby twenty-one year old assistant into a somewhat sophisticated New York woman. As sad as I am to leave there’s no doubt in my mind that this next phase will be riveting, humbling and an experience I’ll be telling my future children about. “Kids, let me tell you about the time Mommy left her very stable and successful job to pursue her passion…”.

Some people leave photos or cards behind to be remembered by. I, apparently, leave mason jars. Here are some gold spray-painted mason jars I put together to help my coworkers stay organized in my absence.IMG_4047IMG_4048IMG_4049

Here marks the start of Chapter 2 of my post grad life: A Little Lost in NYC.

    I admire your courage! I have been struggling with a similar challenge… do leave my stable job to pursue my passions? Only problem is I’m not exactly sure how those passions would become profitable just yet! Best of luck! I’ll be sending good thoughts your way!
