And why on Earth this may mean something to you? Well, it may not mean something to you, at this moment, but it may mean something at the end of this post. For me it definitely this “Steve quitting his job” thing packs a punch. Ok, let’s start this slowly, one thing at a time.
The complete name of the guy is Steven Aitchison. I know him for more than 3 years now. We started blogging around the same time and we kinda bounced back and fourth at times. But although he was a blogger, he still had a full time job. A rather consuming full time job.
Fortunately, his days as an employee are over now. His last day of work would be this Friday. What he’s gonna do after Friday? I have no idea. But one thing he made it clear: he’s not gonna be an employee anymore. Ok, but the guy has family, has kids, has responsibilities. How on Earth he’ll provide for them? From what I heard, he’s gonna be a full time blogger.
Ok, I’m, trying to sweeten this thing out. I didn’t just “heard” he’s gonna be a full time blogger. I know this for sure. I also know that quitting his job was a lifelong dream. A dream reached before his life ended. And I also know that he worked incredibly hard for this.
At the beginning of this post I told you that this post packs a punch for me. It’s not gonna be one of those lengthy posts you’re used to read here. I don’t want you to stay here, on my blog. I want you to go out, reach for Steve’s celebration of this event, and give him a hand. Did I just say “celebration”? Oh, yes. Steven is celebrating this major event big style. Big blogger style, to be more precise.
He’s keeping a 3 days sale, in which he packs $450+ worth of products, sold at just a fraction of this price. I don’t know how he convinced the other guys, but I know I was happy to support him. Just like that, because I’m happy for him. In this massive sale there are also 2 of my titles (I leave you the pleasure to discover them).
Ok, that’s all I had to say, basically. Now it’s your turn. Do you really want to quit your job and live the life of your dreams? Doing what you love, like Steven? Feeling and being free, just like him? Think about it. This guy called Steven, quitting his job, well, this may mean something for you too, after all.
You don’t know from where to start? Just go ahead and dive into his sale. I’m sure you’ll find some inspiration there.
Running For My Life - from zero to ultramarathoner
The spooky thing about depression is that it sneaks in. There aren’t really trumpets and loud voices announcing: “Hail, hail, this is depression entering the room, all rise!” Nope. It’s slow, silent, creepy. It doesn’t even look like depression. It starts with small isolation thoughts like: “Maybe I shouldn’t get out today, I just don’t feel like going out”. And then it does the same next day. And then the day after that and so on. And then it starts to whisper louder and louder in your ears: “Why would you go outside, you loser? Didn’t have enough yet? Want more people to make fun of how much of a big, fat loser you are?”
And then you start to breath in guilt and shame, instead of air. Every breathe you take is putting more dark thoughts into your body.
Until you get stuck. You can’t move anymore. At all.
