Stuck in the middle

Lead. Challenge. Inspire. This is what this blog is about. Today, I’m stuck in the middle.

I feel I have a split personality.

Meet the old Kim: ambitious, driven, enthusiastic PR consultant with a secure, comfortable life.

Now meet the new Kim: equally – if not more – ambitious woman with an insatiable desire to make a difference in the world but who’s not exactly sure as to how. Homeless. Unemployed.

On a day-to-day basis, these two personalities work quite well together – they’re not that distant from each other. But when it comes down to employment and career, it’s a whole different story! Do I go back to what I know? After all, I’m brilliant at it and I enjoy it. So why not?

Or do I follow this ambiguous instinct that’s been burning inside of me for years and has finally found a voice? How do I know if the new path is the right one? If I’ll be good at it?

I took a leap of faith seven months ago when I quit my job. I took another leap of faith when I decided to go travelling. Now I find myself wanting to take yet another leap. But this time, into something I can’t even define clearly, so let alone know how to look for it…

But if I don’t take this leap, will I be true to myself?

So here I am. Challenged. But I know, deep down, that I know the answer. And challenge opens the doors to opportunities, right? So I just need to find that key!

  1. oh Kimmy, so happy for you! one thing i’ve learnt over the past 12 months is that sometimes you have to show that you’re willing to close the old door, before you can be shown where the new one is… xxx
