Making Peace With Wanting a Day Job

It's been said that we live our lives in seasons. I've never felt this more in my life than I have lately.

I've always wanted to be a freelancer. Make my own choices. Take only the clients I want to take. Do what I want to do. Call all the shots. Make all the money.

But lately, I've found myself NOT wanting that.

I don't want to have to call the shots. I don't want to make all the decisions. I don't want to deal with taxes and finances and all the other adulting things.

Instead, I've been thinking more and more about having a day job. I want someone else to pay for the benefits. I want a regular paycheck. I want to have coworkers and a boss. I want to have less stress.

And that's okay.

It doesn't mean that I don't have the capacity to be a business owner. It doesn't mean I can't do it. It doesn't mean that I've failed.

It just feels right at this stage in my life.

I don't feel like I should just take ANY day job, though. To be fair, I already have a day job.

I feel like I can be choosier. I can really define what my dream job looks like. I can be picky. I can expect awesome benefits and an amazing team.

Funny enough, Being Boss JUST released an episode on this and it felt like this divine sign.

"It's okay," the Universe whispered.
