I question everything...

I've been questioning everything lately. Is this right for me? Why do I want to pursue design? Should I lean into other skillsets? Why am I so far behind?

It's all normal and I'm not behind or ahead and neither are you. We don't talk about the fact that we question everything but we should!

FAIL

  • Watching other's journeys and thinking they are my own.

Lesson

  • We're all on different paths, sometimes they run parallel, sometimes they don't. We need to focus on our journey, not everyone else around us.

Takeaways

  • Start sharing more when these things come up, it doesnt' have to be online. Find a safe trusted group and let them know what you're going through.
  • Write out the 5 why's! Not sure what I mean, check out this blog post by Khe from Rad Reads​
  • Know that it's okay to question everything, change your mind frequently and reinvent yourself at any time.

This week on Talks With SaraNoSocks

​

This week I sat down with Jason, better known as Joy with Jas on the socials, who left the corporate banking world seven years ago in search of something more creative. After turning to modeling and acting, COVID helped give him the push he needed to do something else. He has spent the last 12 months sharing going all in on video and just successfully launched a productized video community, Joy With Jas with over 50 members and growing.
​
His insights on burnout as his largest failure: "I was sort of repeatedly falling down a particular hole and I identify now that I probably burnt out three times in life. And Corona was a particularly difficult time for me as well. I experienced anxiety levels that I'd never experienced before in my life. So while the burnout of seven years ago really reset my life. The burnout of Corona and anxiety associated with that with something I'm still rebuilding from and emotionally and physically and and with a therapist and I realized I can no longer run away from life."

After having to answer the same question over and over again on why I am looking to move into a full -time role right now, I revised an old blog post as my answer and shared it on Medium. TL;DR being solo just isn't for me in a lot of ways. This was a very vulnerable share for me, more transparent that I have been for the last two years, but helped lift a bit of the heaviness weighing me down I didn' t even realize was there. ​I'll be sharing more about my solo journey over the last three...

This week I've been reflecting on the job market and job hunting, which is not for the faint of heart. Every single person I've talked to on the job search across community, operations, design and product are struggling to get an interview even with network referrals, tailored resumes and a vast amount of knowledge and experience. I don't have an easy answer because I'm in the same boat. What I do know is that we all succeed by uplifting each other. If you're job hunting, you're not...

Connection, online and off, has been my theme this week. Being an introvert it's easy for me to get in a pattern of just hiding away but after a soild 6 months of slowly going into my 'cave', this week I was back out in full force. Video calls with friends from around the globe, in person meetups with friends, and general connection on the socials has brought a renewed sense of energy and alignment. I'm embracing my discomfort and stepping out of my introverted bubble to do the hard things...
