What the Last Weeks Have Been Leading To


Last weekend, there was an archery tournament.

Today, I resigned from my job.

My heart is still racing. And let me tell you — while I feel wildly free, I’m also a bit terrified. For the first time in my life, I won’t have a guaranteed paycheck anymore.

But for the first time in my life, I’m going to be wildly pursuing my dreams.

It’s time to write the books I have outlined though, and travel and feel vibrantly alive in every moment of my life. While I’m getting to work on those, I’ll be coding some WordPress sites to help with transition and pay the bills (because I’m a Capricorn and we’re practical).

I’ll be back here more too, once my schedule is figured out and a final day is set. I can’t wait to catch up with you.

It seems today’s dawn brought a brave new world with it.

    1. I can’t wait to see what happens next either! Thank you for being so supportive, Kate. Even though I feel good about my decision, a little part of me is freaking out — and knowing I have friends out there like you totally helps calm me down.

  4. Brandi I am so incredibly excited for you! We “met” surrounding Holstee’s manifesto, and I can’t wait to see you live your dreams. I walked away from corporate 3 years ago, and it’s been a crazy but amazing ride ever since. Congratulations!

  5. BRANDI!

    I was starting to wonder what, exactly, was in the works. It’s this!

    and I forgot to ask before, how did that archery tournament go?

  7. Congrats on taking on this new adventure! Leaving a job to pursue your dreams is amazing! Totally admire that! I wish you tons of amazing experiences on this new chapter of your life.

  8. Miss Brandi! It’s been ages since I came to chat with you. Holidays, illnesses, winter malaise. I think you are going to go do some wonderful things. I can’t wait to see what they are. xoxo
