This was the text message that I woke up to yesterday morning.
Closed my eyes again to sleep.
*phone beeps for the second time*
"You start today."
Forced my eyes to open. Stood up.
My Monday officially started.

Right after news of our defeat, I had little time to mope.
I needed to move on and find other ways to make my change in career work.
While I keep saying to myself that I just got to do what I do best, being constantly fearful and worried is not a good state to be in especially for people like me who rely on a clear, free mind for creative juices to flow.
Taking on this part-time writing gig, I believe, is my attempt to strike a balance.
I could still devote most of my day on my craft and upcycling projects...I just need to wake up earlier than usual.
While it may seem I'm only giving my 95% instead of my 100%, defeating my initial objective of resigning so I could give EVERYTHING on my business, let's see if my less worried 95% version is better than fearful 110% Roma.
If it starts interfering with my business, I can always resign, right? At least at the end of the day, I can say with conviction that doing just one thing is the best road to take.

Over the weekend, I got an anonymous email from a reader for the first time since I started blogging. I'm still looking for her blog but I can't seem to find her. If you're reading this, email me back! :)
My anonymous blogger commended my decision to make the jump and hoped that my move would inspire others to make more out of their lives too.
Personally, she said that she's a dreamer too but the need for security is a reality most can't escape.

In the future, I hope I can say to Paradiser Blogger with a straight face that there is a way to balance our dreams and our reality. For now though, I'm still on my way to finding out if there is.
Good news for some of my readers, if you're just too afraid to resign and find out for yourself, I already did it for you. Follow my journey and let's learn together.
