The Odd Excitement of Insecurity

So, I just quit my steady job with a tech company in order to fully chase my dreams as a photographer, storyteller, and athlete.

Its scary as hell to give up steady pay checks and routine. Its scary to think about the dream I usually don't dare to dream.

But lately I've been craving so much more and I'm willing to work hard to get it.

The success of this upcoming journey isn't defined in relation to the achievement of other; but rather, the purpose of this journey is to achieve my own ultimate potential to better serve others.

Vincent Van Gogh once said, "If you hear a voice within you saying 'You are not a painter,' then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced.

I'm ready to silence all the voices that are discouraging me to bring forth this work, though this doesn't mean I'm being blindly optimistic about the reality, hardship, and struggles associated with chasing being dreams. I'm also chasing my dream in the context of community, surrounded by friends with great wisdom.

This does mean that I'm oddly excited about the insecurity that lies ahead.

It means, I'm chasing my dreams.
