I've recently been through a string of major life changes. Most of them I brought upon myself and it was about damn time I did too.
I went through a minor crisis with my Love Project a couple of months ago, feeling utterly exhausted and disheartened with its results and its legitimacy. But instead of crumbling down, I picked myself up and decided that if I didn't like something it was up to me to make some adjustments. And so I did. I quit my job and embraced that crazy feeling of adventure, that crazy feeling that I'm not too sure what I'm doing but somehow I feel safe and okay about it, that crazy feeling that my future is a stark white canvas I can start painting anyway I want.
And somehow magically things started happening. I met someone. I know it's still early to brag about it, but I met someone I like who likes me back. And I would be tempted to say that it only happened when I finally decided to live as my true self. And if there hasn't been enough synchronicity in my life lately, here's a great example: The Daily Love post of today about not living your life in a shadow career:
'Part of living your destiny and not your shadow career is being able to LIVE in and with uncertainty' says Mastin Kipp. 'It's about trusting The Uni-verse to have your back. It's about realizing you have a gift and your job is to GIVE that gift to the world. It's about doing what's right, rather than what's easy. It's about turning PRO and showing up - whether you are inspired or not.'
People asked me where was I going when they found out I'm leaving my job. 'I'm not going anywhere' I always answer with an enigmatic smile. 'I'm staying right here, where I belong, doing what I love and generally enjoying my life.' I'd be lying if I didn't say I always catch a glimpse of admiration on their faces.
I may not be going anywhere, but I'll be doing lots of things. I'll be editing Bitch-online magazine (re-launch planned for 1st Dec 2013), I'll finish writing my book and start looking for an agent, I'll try and make as much money and investing as little effort in the process by freelancing and doing project-based work and I'll be planing a few more adventures. I will also move my online activity to a brand new site (to mark the start of a whole new chapter in my life) so if you're liking what you're reading and still want to read the wrtitten up results of my thoughts in your inbox, then please visit my new site and add yourself on the mailing list: iuliacalota.com
And if you like it that much then tell your friends about. Things are about to get a whole lot better!
