Yep, you read it right, I finally quit my day job! (insert the bells, whistles, and parades with elephants)

From now on I’ll be knee-deep in creative mischiefs as I run Blue Eyed Yonder full-time.

It’s been a little over a week since I gave my notice, and I still have to rub my eyes and make sure that I’m reading those words right, “quit?” I’ve known in my heart this day would one day come for me. You go through life reading books about finding cheese in a maze or discovering the color of your parachute. You pin inspirational posters about chasing your dreams and living life to the fullest. But all of that seemed kind of pointless if I was too scared to leap, to afraid to step into the ocean.

So what made me finally do it? What made me check out of corporate life and open the doors to creativity? Well it’s kind of a neat story – one I’ll share this week with you on the blog. To give you a hint it involves Atlanta traffic and Christopher Columbus. Confused? Ha! You’re gonna love it.

    ….and I thought you were getting another dog!!!! I just can’t tell you how proud I am of you ….and so happy for you on your new venture!!!! Now… go and use the talents God has given you to the fullest… “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men, since you know that you will receive and inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.”
    Colossians 3:23-24

    Congrats! The first thing I did when I quit my job and joined the creative world was go buy a new work-at-home wardrobe. It looks similar to pajamas, but technically it’s called “loungewear”. 😉
