It has been a busy and rewarding past 6 months. The best decision I made was quitting my job, moving back to Charleston from Colorado and enrolling in The Iron Yard. I took complete control of my life and decided that I would never work a day in my life again unless it was doing something fun and challenging that required me to constantly learn and I could be completely passionate about. Enter computer coding and web development. I have fell completely in love. I get to solve challenging problems day in and day out. I get to write things that 90% of the world do not know how to. I get to create things from nothing. I get to takes ideas and turn them into reality. It is a great feeling, but, best of all…I am constantly learning!
What is even more awesome is the job prospects I have been presented with recently. I have had some amazing opportunities and have had the privilege to choose a job out of a stack of offers. Not only that, but it’s a job that I am so incredibly excited for. I believe in everything they are doing and can not wait to start this next chapter in my life!
I will leave you with some wise words that were introduced to me by one of the greatest women I know, my grandmother.
If you follow your bliss, you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while, waiting for you, and the life that you ought to be living is the one you are living. Wherever you are—if you are following your bliss, you are enjoying that refreshment, that life within you, all the time. – Joseph Campbell
