You’ll Just Know
When you jump in with fear, you’ll know if it’s right.
We hear the saying all the time: when you meet the right person, you’ll know.
I thought I knew when I met my first husband. But now that it’s all said and really done, I knew deep down we were not right for each other.
When I met my second husband, I knew for sure that this was THE GUY! I know he knew it too when, on our very first date, I told him he was full of shit, and he laughed at me when he explained why there was a button on the wall and how that affected the service at my favorite sushi restaurant (it’s to ring the wait staff to tell them you are ready to order). We were so at ease with each other from the very start that it felt like we’d known each other forever. We just knew.
Is it the same for a career, a job or a business?
I never gave that a second thought until this past weekend. After more than 15 years, I decided to go back into videography. Things have changed enormously since the last time I hoisted a camera on my shoulder. Just the fact that I had to hoist a 45 lb camera on my shoulder should indicate just how long it’s been. I also had to carry roughly 50 lbs of batteries on a belt around my waist. I was in much better shape then, too.
The minute I picked up the camera, everything I’ve ever loved about videography came bubbling to the surface. I felt light, giddy, and I felt every creative nerve come to life. Once I turned on the camera and started shooting some footage, I just knew: This is the right place for me. This is what I’m supposed to be doing.
I’m allowing the universe to lead me into the launch of my new videography business in June. And my husband is right behind me, figuratively and literally, encouraging me to take the leap. “See,” he says, “your personal calling is NOT housework.”
THAT, I know for sure.
