Get Back Out There

I want to use what I’ve learned about public relations to push my own career as a writer. That’s what sets me apart – I intend to be my own publicist in every sense of the word. That, however, doesn’t mean I’ve given up on the communications field. I’m more open to possibilities now than ever before. I’ve been applying to flight attendant positions because I want to travel, but I’ve also been looking at positions in the communications field.

I keep reminding myself that it’s perfectly okay not to have it all figured out. That’s what makes this journey worthwhile. Do I sometimes worry? Of course! Don’t we all? But I knew upon quitting my job that hardships, including uncertainty, would follow. I know that it will all be worth it when I begin to experience the realization of my dreams.

In honor of the new year, I decided to add a vision board to my home office. My vision board is simple: a map of the world. I want to travel the world and take over the world! I want to live the life of my dreams. Travel is the theme.

Vision Board





Even if you’re full of uncertainty, doubt and worry, don’t be afraid to get back out there! Let go of the idea that you must have a plan. Maybe the plan unfolds only as you move forward.

    Being a flight attendant would be amazing! I love how you’ve really taken the time to figure out what the best career path is for *you* – not just because people suggest it, but because you feel that it’s right. Wishing you all the best in 2014 as you pursue your writing career. I’ll buy anything you write, so keep us updated ;)

    I have that same Paris poster! I also have the London poster, too… been looking for Milan and NY. I love them, so great.

    Anyway, can you be a flight attendant with out the training/courses? Or is that just an advantage. I’ve been thinking about doing that a LOT lately, too. Would be amazing!

      Em, you have great taste! I saw one for Italy and didn’t buy it for some odd reason, since I am fascinated by Italy. Regarding becoming a flight attendant, it’s a lengthy process. You have to apply and take an online questionnaire. Once you’re called, if selected, you’ll go through training. Some airlines pay for the few weeks of training, but some don’t. Apply! You have nothing to lose. Good luck!

        Thanks for the advice! Where do you suggest applying to? Any particular company or website?
