Moving Forward: My Decision to Break Out of my Comfort Zone

A lot of writers that I know have one (or several) side jobs that provide a sort of financial safety net. I have one of those too, but I made the decision this past weekend that it was time to move on; not immediately, but I set an end date that I plan on sticking to. I’m breaking up with my past.

Part of the decision comes from boredom. I’m tired of the routine and the fact that this side job takes up the entirety of  my Sunday. The other part of it comes from being frustrated with my writing, or lack there of.

I started to wonder two things: how my career would advance if I spent those Sundays writing and pitching and how much more money I could make that way.

Why I should I hold myself back from something that could be potentially better and totally awesome for the same routine I’ve had for the past five years or so. I believe that part of moving forward is letting go of the past. Here’s  hoping that it doesn’t backfire.

Have you made the decision to breakup with your past?  How did it work out for you? Let me know in the comments!

  1. I am thinking that this is probably the best breakup of all time 🙂 Get yourself into a new routine for those Sundays, and I think it will be very beneficial for you.
