It was a year ago this week that I said goodbye to the corporate world. So how has it been? Below I talk about the ups and downs.
I’ve not taken a holiday, I can no longer afford to buy what I want when I want and thought has to go into everything I do, BUT and this is the very important bit – everyday feels like a holiday to me and life is just so much better for it.
I’ve enjoyed good health. I was able to spend lots of time with my elderly dog, Alfie, who has now sadly departed this life. I have been able to ride most days as I manage my own diary and appointments. I have had time to catch up with friends that ordinarily I wouldn’t have had time for and I’ve made many new friends along the way. I have been able to dedicate my time and all my effort into doing something I really wanted to do which is homeopathy. It has been hard work, generating new business when you aren’t known is not an easy thing to do, but I have been dedicated and persistent.
My practice is growing from strength to strength with people recommending my services. I’m even “international” as I see people all over the world using Skype and this works really well. I absolutely love helping people and I can safely say that I have helped many people with their health ailments (both on a physical and emotional level) over this past year.
I LOVE my job but there are tough days too. For example, last week someone decided that they no longer wanted to go down the homeopathic route and were going to take anti-depressants after all. For a short while I felt completely useless and that I had failed, but then I looked at the list of people that I have helped and realized that each person has to do what’s right for them. So after spending far too much time wondering whether I could have done this or that differently I decided to let go of that particular situation. We can’t always help everyone and this is something I am learning.
Anyway enough about me, are you still struggling with a decision or wondering whether to start something new? Nothing happens over night, we are all on a journey but tap into the true you and your true dreams and you may find that you start your journey sooner than you think. Maybe you’re not sure where you want to go, play with ideas, brainstorm with friends, shout out crazy ideas and from there a seed might just be born.
I would love to hear from you especially if you are thinking of making any changes to your life. My advice would be don’t be afraid. What’s the worst that can happen? At least you can look back and say you tried.
Wishing you a happy and love filled weekend. If you would like to find out more about my homeopathic practice you can find me here:- http://traceycampbellhomeopath.com
