Musings of a Hesitant Online Soul - Big Leaps

A series...

“Man is free at the moment he wishes to be” – Voltaire, French Writer

I couldn’t agree more on this fitting statement as I face what I personally declared a good year of big changes.  As I entered the Year of the Water Snake, it was all big changes unfolding for all the people close to me and myself as well.  These changes resonate to the fact that we all effected these changes when we exercised our innate freedom to do what we really wished and desired.

I was free at that moment I knew I was ready to leave the doldrums of the constant rush and seemingly endless concerns of the corporate world. It was a big decision to make but it was more than liberating to truly hold together the more important facets in my life – of being truly present to my children on their growing years, of being able to support my husband with his own challenges.

From changing your career midway in your life to pursuing your interest, to accepting new challenges, to capping your career, to leaving your place of comfort to journey into a new one – these are the freedoms that we have been seeking all our lives. We are free to embrace what we truly desire, to live it, to enjoy it and to be in that moment – we only have to know that we are free to do so at the moment we wished for it. To take the big leap is to begin again.

  1. We can choose at every moment. Good for you for making the choice to be true to yourself and liberate yourself from the daily grind that was holding you back (i.e. corporate).
    Congrats on taking the leap.

    1. Thank you Debra, here’s truly believing that nothing is ever too late in this world.

  2. Thanks for your post! I love being reminded that I have choice in every moment, even if it's only my attitude toward a situation beyond my control. I can control how I respond and that is an empowering place to be!

    1. Indeed, Ava, we are how we want to be. It’s heartwarming to know this simple musing gets to remind you of something that we never cease to have – the choice.
