I’m in a tough spot. I need to make a hard decision. The decision will most likely change my life. I’m looking at the two pumpkins on the table, they’re part of my progress, and they’re going to be part of my decision.
I always cherish every tiny detail of my progress. Now, I’m smiling when I’m looking back at what things used to be like and where I am today. I feel that I have accomplished a lot, it might not look like a lot for people who don’t know me and my story. But, believe me, I’ve come a long way.
I’m usually satisfied if the feeling I am left with is a good feeling. That’s regarding clients, the projects I’m working on, and the vegetables I’ve been growing. When I’m looking at the vegetables, I’ve come to understand that I can look at them as part of my progress as a person and what life has to offer. I planted a tiny seed, and weeks, and sometimes months later, I’m witnessing massive growth. And right now, I’m looking at two wonderful orange pumpkins that weighs more than 10 lbs.
When I’m looking at the pumpkins, I’m also looking at the future. And sometimes when I’m looking at the future, it’s either filled with bright colors, or it’s black and white.
You might already know this, but I want to tell you the details all over again. I started my marketing business on 1 April in 2012, and I probably don’t need to tell you this, but I am having an awesome time doing what I love to do. I am meeting brilliant business owners every week, and I’m doing my best to help them get more customers by creating marketing strategies and helping them understand what marketing is all about. On the other hand, what I probably haven’t told you, is that I am still employed by the University.
I have to decide if I’m going back to the job as head of marketing on 1 January 2013. I need to notify the University, and I don’t have much time.
I’m struggling with the decision. The reason why it’s hard is mostly because I’m looking at two completely different situations.
- A job vs a lifestyle
- Job security vs who knows what will happen
- Lots of co-workers vs working alone
And, I’ll probably get more questions during the next weeks. I just hope I’ll end up with some answers before Christmas. I’m thinking that if I can figure out what to do, it will end up being my best Christmas gift ever.
