I’m Back!

Well, my big event is over. It was a huge success, so much so that I have already been offered several side event planning jobs – an interesting concept. But the big thing is that it’s over. Aside from being completely wiped out and trying to frantically wrap up all the loose ends from the event, I am feeling pretty relieved that it went well. Let me brag for just a minute: there were 700 attendees, and it raised over $140,000 for the non-profit organization that I work for – pretty impressive if I do say so myself.

My plan for the next few weeks is to start back up with my writing projects, including this blog. I’m taking a week off from my full time job for a wedding I’m in and I will have two house guests during that time, but hopefully I will get some writing time in. Then I am headed to Chicago for a long weekend. So things are still going to be pretty busy, but I am antsy to get back into the flow of writing. I realized over the past few weeks how much I miss writing, the creative juices I feel when I write and the sense of control over my own life that I get from writing.

In the next few weeks it is also time to make some big decisions about my career. I have the money in the bank that I need to quit my full time job, I have some writing clients that will give me a good start into freelance writing full time, and I have the absolute support of my family and friends, but I am still scared to death to walk away from a stable, good paying job in this economy. I know I really need to just make the leap, and I will regret it if I don’t but why does it have to be so scary? I feel like now that the time is actually here, I’m hesitating…..oh, what to do?
