Today marks the 6 year anniversary of the day that changed everything.

Following nothing more than a gut feeling than I was destined for more, I walked into my soul sucking job, aka the career I spent a decade building, and quit.

This moment changed the course of my life.

Up until this point, I was just going through the motions. I wasn’t really living. I was stuck in the nine to five grind choosing the paycheck over passion.

When I quit I didn’t have a plan. I didn’t know what I was going to do. All I had was a one-way plane ticket to Bali and a knowing deep within that I was meant for more.

Quitting my career was one of the hardest things I have ever done. Looking back I am so proud of younger Emily for having the courage to listen to her intuition even though it made no sense to anyone else.

The reason I’m sharing this with you today is because I want to inspire you to make your own life changing decision.

That decision to quit my job and go on a quest to find myself literally CHANGED. MY. LIFE.

Who knows what my life would have been if I didn’t make that choice.

It was scary, really really fucking scary. I spent the first few days in Bali thinking “holy shit what did I do?!”

But being on the court of life and making bold decisions takes courage.

And guess what, I know that you’re courageous.

So I ask you,

What decision would change the course of your life?

What would it take for you to leap?

And it doesn’t have to be some big, huge decision. Start small. The decision to have that talk with your partner. The decision to talk to the cute boy at the coffee shop. The decision to get over your fear and begin taking yoga classes. All of these things will impact your life.

I know that sometimes it may not feel like it, but you are in control of your destiny. You are in driver’s seat of your life.

You are courageous,

xo,

Em
