It's crazy how time flies.
My last blog was written in December of 2020 and looking back on it now, that seems so long ago. 2021 has been a super crazy year for me and I can't even begin to put into words what I've experienced over the past few months.
For starters: I moved to South Korea.
I've spent the last 9 or so months almost 14 hours ahead of my loved ones, including my baby boy, Jerm. This was the first time I've packed up and moved somewhere without him since he's been born. Honestly, I hope to never have to do that ever again.
For a long time I didn't know how to transition to what this is now. I sat on this for longer than I should have, allowing doubt to fester. There's always that little voice.. Am I doing too much?! Am I doing enough?! Don't get me wrong, that never truly goes away, but walking out on faith sure does quiet it some. 2021 opened my eyes to many things: I can run a business. It is possible to balance your personal and professional life in a healthy way. If necessary, I can step away from the career I've known over these past 13 years and be okay.
If I've learned anything over this past year, its that we can't let the fear of the unknown dictate how we navigate through life. There will always be something we don't know, but it takes personal responsibility and accountability to self educate and then proceed cautiously, yet confidently.
Don't let that shit hold you.
We growing and glowing out here.
