Starting over at 32

I know there are a lot of people who can relate to this topic so I'm gonna go ahead and dive right in! For the remainder of this year, I've decided to be more real and share a side of myself that is more vulnerable.

I've seen a lot of stuff during my life and I've experienced so much and endured so much you would not believe or understand. I'll spare you that drama and hope to have it all penned in a novel of some sort since that story must be shared.

Like any true Jamaican, I've had many jobs which means I've quit and resigned from many jobs! You see, I have my interests and I would say I'm pretty good at all of them and the jobs I've had suited those interests until it was time to be paid! Employers would hold out and it was always " oh it will be sent to your account" and 2 weeks would pass and nothing -- a month still nothing. Clearly, I was working for nothing but a hope and a dream. These were the jobs that I would leave and the curious on-lookers notable those of the family my father acquired through marriage would give their un-required opinions of "lawd she caan keep a job". These un-lookers never made it past the 9th grade much less a university degree or a real job so their portion was geared more towards the "be fruitful and multiply" variety so their opinions never mattered.

My saving grace was always the family business and when things got hard it was what I fell back on and I fell hard! Fast-forward to April of this year when I said enough was enough and put myself back on the job market and discovered "agency life". I had no idea these opportunities existed where I could be paid quite handsomely for skills I already have to multiple clients and this is where I found my bliss.

This, of course, meant starting over at 32 which was hella scary as I wondered how long it would take me to be a seasoned key player in the industry and climb the ladder to success and live the Jamaican Dream and all I did was stress myself out!

It's always doing something you've never done and even more scary to re-direct your life at the age of 32 but I'm currently in my feels and can truly say "age is just a number". If there is something you've always wanted in life and might not have attained it in your youth, still go after it. 

At the end of the day, nothing is worth it if you are not happy!

How old were you when you felt the most secure and happy in your life? For me, it's 32!
