1. Not the P-word again. Yes, the p-word again. Be patient.
Learning the balance between taking action and practicing patience has been a recurring ethos in my life. To keep it a buck, learning to be more patient with the pace of my life, has allowed me to slow down and move with more intentionality and confidence. It has also placed me in spaces both personally and professionally where I am valued and celebrated. Practicing patience is a skill. It calls for us to be still so that we can quiet the noise and expectations of the outside world and allow our intuition to lead us.
On your journey to navigating change, remember, there is power in knowing when to exercise patience and when to put your foot on the gas.
2. Explore your interests
As Drake poetically puts it in his song Champagne Poetry, “This is the part where I'ma find a new part of me to explore.” This lyric is very on-brand for my life. A huge part of what led me to find a new career that I enjoy was choosing to explore my interests. My passion for storytelling and love for fashion influenced me to create a lifestyle blog. In this space, I was able to sharpen my understanding of digital marketing, strategic communications, and fashion which eventually led me to do similar work in my 9-5. And so, as I wrapped my mind around the digital world, I fell in love with the profession of being a digital nomad. It offers me the freedom, creativity, and financial stability to live the life I truly desire.
If you are in a season of change, align yourself with interests or hobbies that reinvigorate you. How else are you supposed to open yourself up to new possibilities? You never know where your interests may lead you. Choose one professional and one personal interest to explore.
