I’ve taken a huge risk. I left my full-time job to pursue something more significant to me. I’m relatively still young, but I’m also getting old and right now, quitting a full-time job is not really the smartest choice. There’s no concrete plan waiting for me. I just know I want to have more time outside, rather than confined in a well air-conditioned office. Being able to do a lot of trail running makes me really happy, being in the outdoors gives me comfort and I just know that whatever it is that I’m gonna do next should be outside.
I have transitioned from one job to another quite a couple of times already, I would learn a lot from it, but something will always stay uncertain. I always ask myself, is this what I really want to do? I don’t want my job to define me and I don’t want to do it just for the money. For some people, work is just work. But not for me. I want it to be really significant to me, thus I’d find myself leaving one job after the other simply because I don’t find meaning in it anymore. But after all the career changes, there is one thing that is always certain and significant–running. To some people, this might sound shallow, but running is the only thing I’m sure of. I think I can safely say I’m quite good at it, and to me, it just gives me simple pleasure. It’s the balm to my soul. It keeps me steady and complete. So I’ve given it a lot of thought, maybe I should find a way to merge CAREER + PASSION FOR RUNNING. Maybe that is why I have decided to start on this blog. Honestly I was never a blog fan, specially running blogs. I hardly read any, but I realized I was just too selfish to learn about the experiences of other people. Maybe blogging is one baby step to finding what to do with this passion. Let’s see!
