I quit my job! Yes, that’s right. I’m officially a full-time actor, television host, blogger and YouTube content creator. Wow, that sounds scary but even more exhilarating!
Last week, I marched into my serving job and told them that I was leaving and boy, did it feel good. What most of you don’t know, is that serving was how I made the majority of my income. I’ve been dreaming of the day when I would quit serving and fully pursue my dream. It is indeed scary, pursuing your dream, but it’s even scarier looking at back at your life and regretting not having lived each day exactly the way you wanted. I am in an industry that has many more lows than highs, but I am willing to sacrifice times of frustration, disappointment and financial destruction for the solid fact that the highs knock the lows right out of the ballpark.
This year has already been incredible. I have a job as a television host on a network I grew up watching, my YouTube channel is growing larger by the day, I’m filming videos and writing for large outlets, and my travel itinerary is starting to look exciting. I’m very grateful to have so much love and support from my family and friends (that includes you guys). I want to thank you for being part of this journey, and I’m so excited to see how far we can take this.
What are your dreams?
I hope that all of you believe in the fact that you too can follow your dreams and make them come true. No matter what your circumstance is, believe in yourself and keep on pushing. I guarantee that with A LOT of hard work, passion and perseverance, you will succeed in whatever it is you want. I believe in you! Keep on pushing and believe in yourself.
To another year of travel and pursuing our dreams!
