So, you thought you would be…

Do you have it all figured out? Are you where you want to be?

Day after day, people go to work and they hate it. They aren’t satisfied! I have been one of those people and I don’t want to be one of those people anymore. So, I’m making changes.

First of all, no one has it all figured out and if you do please contact me. I would love to pick your brain.

By this time I thought I would have it all figured out. I thought my life would be settled and put together. Guess what? It’s not and that’s okay! The last couple of months have been trying for me. Things have been up in the air and I’m trying to figure out my next move.

Not too long ago, someone said to me that I’ve had all the jobs. They asked what would I do next. It almost felt like a jab, but I handled it with grace. My response was, “Life is too short for me to be unhappy.”

We are only on this earth for a short period of time. Although it may seem like a long time, it’s really not. I have decided that I’m not going to rest until I find a career that I really enjoy. Something that speaks to my heart and pull at my heartstrings.

Currently, I’m a second grade teacher. With the current state of education, I’m not certain it’s worth the headache. As I teacher, I don’t feel respected on any front. It’s difficult to do a job efficiently when you feel belittled.

So, I have decided to bow out gracefully with only two teaching terms under my belt. To all the teachers my hat is off to you because you have a treacherous road to travel.

With that being said, I am here to tell you it’s okay! What ever point you’re at in life, it’s okay. If you’re switching careers, lifestyles, or homes it’s okay! Sometimes in life we gotta reset and start over. It doesn’t matter how often you start over. Just keep moving forward. Don’t let anyone make you feel some type of way because of your choices.

My advice to you and myself is to keep going, keep switching it up until you find your joy. I’m here to let you know, it’s okay! People may fault you! People may hate on you! People may talk about you and every side, but don’t let that stop you.

I have been a loan officer, a customer service representative, a teacher, and a fundraiser. I have been almost everything under the sun and I’m still pressing forward. I’m going to continue to try new things until I find what I want to do.

Life is too short to be unhappy. Now with that being said (again), I still have responsibilities. I will never not take care of my responsibilities unless something terrible happens.

Throughout this thing call life, I’m learning to bet on myself. I’m learning to invest in myself. I’m in my 30’s and I don’t have it all together and it’s okay. I’m trying to find my way like everyone else. Wish me luck because life’s too short to work in a job/career for 30 years and not be satisfied.

Are you betting on yourself? Invest in yourself and build yourself up to the fullest.

Life’s too short not to be happy,

Shanna C.
