'The Giant Leap'

Chris Gonzales ponders what his next move will be after a big life change:

So What Happens Next?

Maybe it's a sign for me to finally start chasing all the dreams I've been too scared to try until now. Maybe it's time to take a chance, to do something better and more meaningful with my life. I have no good reason not to at least try — my hand has already been forced.

The above passage struck a chord with me, as it reminds me of how I got to where I am today.

I'm a big believer in the idea that everything happens for a reason. As difficult as it was, I think leaving my old job was meant to happen, and the best thing that I could've done for myself. My new career is still in its early days yet, but the success and joy I've experienced doing what I love and what I know is validation to me that I made the right choice.
