She spoke about her thriving life as she once knew it. It was complete with a new successful business and loving fiance. After the tragedies of 9/11, she lost everything in the death of her husband. It triggered a need to live without regret.
If I wait any longer to complete the career transition that I have wanted for so long, I run the risk of living of life filled with regret. It has been too long of a situation for me because of security. While I was groomed and put in a position of job safety, my health and happiness have both been sacrificed in the process. Another year has gone by and taken my age with it. If a move is not made now, the fear of retirement looms on the horizon without ever quenching the thirst for something more.
This is the moment when I have finally decided to take the plunge and try. Will the freelance life be for me?
