As I was just saying, plan as much as you want but life usually has it’s own set of plans in store for you. I was reminded of this truth big time a few weeks ago when I knew in my gut I had to put any moving out west plans on hold. After all was said and done, I decided to grow and expand my career, right here in ATL. It was a very difficult decision to allow myself to make. I had envisioned myself living in Cali for many, many years and very recently was putting together plans to move to Colorado when my lease ended.
This all changed after a very heart felt conversation with my boss about my desire to move. Afterwards I came home, poured myself a few glasses of wine and settled into all the thoughts and emotions running through my head. By the end of the night, I knew deep down I needed to be patient and stay put. Although it wasn’t easy for me to accept at first, I would never take back that decision.
Since then, our in office team has doubled in size. This little Graphic Designer became Art Director & Product Design Assistant, and plans for me to join in on international trips are already in the works. Talk about some exciting beginnings and future life adventures! Certain opportunities only present themselves once and I have a feeling I would look back and agree that this was one of them.
