Moving Into What's Next

Updated: Dec 7, 2019

So my MBA graduation was earlier last week, and what did I decide to do immediately following? Quit my job.

I've taken that leap of faith. There are quite a few things that I am working on that I am passionate about. I am finding myself needing to devote the time, effort and energy into getting them out into the World.

The first is my writing. I am in the process of writing a trilogy series called "Crown Jewels".

The first book is written and I am working my way through my final revisions of it.

I am about half way through the second installment of the series.

I am hoping to be in a space to release book one in 2020, which will launch hand-in-hand with a 30 day series called "30 days of Authenticity."

30 days of Authenticity will launch with a company that I have been involved with for a minute now called Intention Inspired. Which brings me to the second thing that I am working on, helping to evolve Intention Inspired from what it is now - to having a loving community space to facilitate inner growth, self development and connection.

I'm a planner (and to be honest a control freak) so it's been a huge shift for me to just release control, surrender and trust that all of this will unfold exactly as it's meant to.

I was talking with a few others last week and realised I have never actually done what I am currently living. I have quit jobs before, sure, but only when I have had something else lined up. At this moment in time, I don't. I have projects that I am working on that I am incredibly passionate about, but as of right now, I don't actually know when I will have income coming in. That, is actually really un-nerving!

Everyone I've told is really excited for me, and at the base of it all for me is excitement too, as I know I'm meant to lead, I know I'm meant to shine, I know I'm meant to help, guide, all of that. But I currently feel like I've leapt up that mountain and am starting to flap my wings, but I haven't quite managed to learn how to fly.

I do trust that it will unfold as it's meant to though, even if it is a bit nerve wracking.

So cheers, my friends, to "What's Next" <3

Maria, thank you for sharing a very personal part of your life. It is very inspiring and insightful. Good luck to you in all your future endeavors, although I don't think luck will have anything to do with your future success. :-) Blessings to you and yours...
