My first job out of college was a desk job at a small awesome company, who is doing extremely well because they have the best customer service ever. This job was a really great first job (and I appreciate/miss my fair and awesome manager and co-workers a lot), but it was a shock for me to sit at a desk all day.
During that time, I was really lost. I had no idea what I wanted to do or what the first step to getting there would even be.
Everyday after work, I would head to the gym to take Body Step or Body Combat or Body Pump classes; they made me feel alive after work.
Looking back, I am so thankful for my first job; I was respected and treated well, it just wasn't in the right industry for me.
Currently, I am facing different challenges. I am out and about, which I am so thankful for, but I struggle on a daily basis to find my voice. Lately, I have been feeling like I run around in circles. I am cooking and working out and decorating and studying. But, I don't feel as confident because I am trying things that are completely uncomfortable; I am putting myslef out there. I always thought finding the path was the hard part.
I really just had to get that out. I enjoy a challenge, but when everything is hard all at once, it kind of knocks the wind out of you.
